Diesel Engine Damper Fill Detection Production Test

Crankshaft damper fill production test

If an incompletely filled crankshaft damper is fitted to a large diesel engine, the crankshaft will fail – which can cost well over £20000.

We carried out extensive tests on a wide range of dampers and devised an impact noise test that can be used to detect the rare faulty dampers in production. ProTest systems fitted to the lines generate controlled impacts and analyse the response of each damper – only operating the welding machines if the dampers are correctly filled.
