The engine system is a complex system which is composed of various
metals, tubes and wires on which you may find very complicated
if you don’t
have a basic idea on car assembly. The main function of the engine system
is to convert gasoline or diesel if it’s a diesel engine into motion
so that you car can move. And this is done by burning it inside the engine
which is known as the internal combustion engine. The engine system is
composed of various parts and damage to any of these parts will greatly
affect the overall performance of the engine that is why some materials
and devices are attached to it to prevent this problem. One of which is
the harmonic balancer.
We carry a complete line of harmonic balancer's and dampers
to fit all of your needs from the following companies.
The harmonic balancer, which is also known as a harmonic damper, is essential
to the longevity of an engine since it prevents crankshaft failure. It
is usually mounted at the front end of the crankshaft in order to absorb
and dissipate the majority of the vibration energy. It consists of the
hub, an outer weight ring, and a sandwiched layer of flexible rubber. It
is the rubber that absorbs the energy of the vibrating crankshaft in the
form of heat, damping the amount of vibration to within safe limits.
The crankshaft is the part of the engine that converts the up and down motion
of the pistons and connecting rods during the combustion cycle into rotary
motion that spins the transmission and the vehicle’s drive wheels.
Every time a cylinder fires, the force twists the crankshaft. When the cylinder
stops firing the force ceases to act and the crankshaft starts to return
to the untwisted position. However, the crankshaft will overshoot and begin
to twist in the opposite direction, and then back again. Eventually the crankshaft
will experience torsional vibration which can cause it to fail after some
In order to keep this problem from occurring, installing a harmonic balancer
for your vehicle is necessary. The entire engine system should always be
in good working condition in order to give you a safer and more relaxing
