Heidenheim, Baden-Württemberg, Germany, 2019/10/30 - Voith adds the new Hydrodamp 365 HT to its growing portfolio of vibration dampers. Specially developed for the demands of agricultural machines, the new addition provides effective damping of torsional vibrations in tractors - Voith.com. FSE: VO2A
• Hydrodamp 365 HT (High Torque) developed for agricultural use;
• Efficient damping of torsional vibration in high-power engines;
• Maximum operational efficiency and increased service life.
"Based on the Voith HTSD 365, which has proven itself in various areas of application, the vibration damper has been completely revised and reinforced to meet the requirements of agriculture and its trend towards ever more powerful vehicles,” says Bernd Schick, Product Manager for Dampers at Voith.
Made for agricultural machines
The result is an optimized setup that is custom designed for use in tractors. The two-stage characteristic and the higher torque capacity meet the requirements of tractors while achieving the most economical operation. Combined in a single system, its spring packages and special hydraulic damping system enable isolation and damping of torsional vibrations proportional to speed. This results in more effective damping of resonance frequencies or higher amplitudes of vibration. The damping effect can be matched to different operating ranges by way of the torsion angle as well as gap geometries and the viscosity of the damping medium. Modular damping and spring components make the Hydrodamp 365 HT easily adaptable to the driveline’s specific requirements.
Wear-free performance, maximum efficiency
The Hydrodamp 365 HT requires little maintenance and offers wear-free damping, resulting in increased service life and operational availability. The reduced vibrations allow for fuel-efficient driving, especially in low-speed areas. Vehicle jerking is significantly reduced, thus increasing comfort for the driver. In addition, the lower vibrations notably reduce noise emissions.
