The SUSPA® hydraulic dampers, also called shock absorbers, industrial shock absorbers or vibration dampers, are designed for the respective product application so that an optimal movement sequence or optimal vibration behavior is achieved. We use our decades of experience in the field of damping technology to solve your individual requirements for damping vibrations and impacts.
What is a hydraulic damper? How is the damper built and what forces are acting? We present the most important characteristics of the SUSPA® hydraulic dampers to you here.
Hydraulic dampers are damping elements that convert the kinetic energy of moving parts into thermal energy. This avoids hard impacts or excessive vibration amplitudes.
Hydraulic dampers consist of a pressure pipe, a piston rod with a special piston system and the damping medium of oil, which is why they are also called hydraulic dampers. Within the oil-filled pressure pipe is the piston rod with the special sealing and guiding package, which hermetically seals the interior of the hydraulic damper to the atmosphere - even under extreme environmental influences.
When the piston rod is moved, the damping medium of oil is pressed through the bores in the piston system. The damping force results from the resistance of the oil when flowing through the piston system. Due to the internal design of the piston system, the pull and push direction can be set independently of each other. The damping forces are dependent on the piston speed.
Adjustable linear, progressive or degressive characteristic curves allow for the application-oriented design of the hydraulic damper. All hydraulic dampers developed by SUSPA® are designed for the respective product application so that an optimal movement sequence or optimal vibration behavior is achieved.
