Vibratech TVD has released a new severe-duty crankshaft damper for Cummins ISX/X15 engines.
The company says truck operators and heavy-duty diesel technicians requested the product be developed after experiencing crankshaft failure and front gear noise under severe conditions while using an OE vibration damper.
The company says its Vibratech TVD severe-duty damper is more robust than the traditional Vibratech TVD heavy-duty standard ISX/X15 replacement. Diameter remains 14-3/4 in. while damping mass is increased 37 percent to 54.7 lb. Damper durability also is improved for continuous operations in high ambient temperatures above 1000°F/38o°C. Vibratech TVD also recommends the severe-duty damper if experiencing front gear noise, power output above 600 hp, and/or in long haul trucks with multiple trailers.
Other applications may include high temperature environments, logging, mining and construction.
