Metal dampers are exceptionally sealed dampers that are mostly fixed on vehicles, trains, and other mechanical devices.

Its major function is to help in reducing the effects of force on moving machines. It turns the littlest amount of leaked fluid into a dense fog contaminating optics and electronic systems in a vacuum.

Get a couch while I take you through the gains, functions, and roles you can derive from using metal dampers.

What are the gains you derive from using metal dampers?

  • One of the best benefits you get to derive from using the metal dampers is longevity. The metal dampers are designed to endure unlimited numbers of cycles while the machine is at work.
  • With metal dampers, there is no friction
  • Specific orders are taken by manufacturers. You can design/request a more unique metal damper.
  • Certainly, with the use of metal dampers, you have zero leakages.
  • Zero maintenance costs.

The basic Function of a Metal Damper

There is a sealed cylinder in the metal damper and there are the hydraulic fluid and valve passages. When the machine is at work the suspension moves up and down, so also there is a piston in the cylinder which moves as well.

During this action, the valve passages slow down the flow of fluid which controls the piston’s motion and the way the suspension moves. An interesting thing about the damper is that it adjusts to any moving condition it found itself in.

Once the suspension moves faster the damper provides it with more resistance.

What is the role of a metal damper?

There are some basic things a metal damper can do and cannot do. Don’t assume that a damper can do all. One of the specific things it can’t do is support the weight of a machine, which is the job of a spring. Spring is another type of suspension.

The major role of a metal damper is that it controls the movement of springs in machines by supporting it with resistance. This ensures other parts are kept in good shape.

Let’s look at it from this angle; when you bounce a tennis ball, you are the one controlling the tennis ball. If you don’t catch it once you bounce it, it loose control and gradually bounces its way till it stops.

A machine without a metal damper acts this same way. In a machine situation, the damper controls the bounce.

Two essential roles of metal dampers are;

  • Metal dampers keep some parts of the machine intact such as the tire of a car. In the case of a car, it helps in keeping the tire fixed to the ground. This prevents you from losing control of the machine.
  • If the springs of your machine are allowed to work the way they like, the person controlling the machine might get exhausted at a point in time.
