Purchasing Top-Quality Linear Dampers

The word "linear dampers" is broad and can refer to a variety of dashpot and shock absorber designs. They are generally employed in devices that are intended more for the attenuation of reciprocating motion than for the absorption of high shock loads.

For seamless deceleration when elevating or lowering an object, such as an armrest in a car, or opening or closing a door, our linear dampers are the perfect choice. With the use of these dampers, speed of any moving part can be adjusted, reducing noise and shocks while also greatly prolonging the product's lifespan.

How Do Linear Dampers Work?

The linear damper functions by transmitting the motion of an object's kinetic energy to the valve located within the dampening cylinder via the steel rod. As the spring pushes the hydraulic fluid back into the damping chamber, the hydraulic fluid is forced through the valve and creates friction.

Owing to the particular method of functioning, the linear dampers can be used in situations where the load makes continuous contact with them as well as when contact happens after movement has started.

The viscous fluid only provides resistance in one direction, hence linear dampers can only operate in that direction. For instance, it's typical for a cabinet door to only move more slowly when it closes; in this situation, a linear damper is recommended.

Application of Linear Dampers

Many different applications on smaller loads make use of a linear damper.

Linear dampers, which may be mounted on a variety of objects in many sectors, have the ability to facilitate movement due to their resistance adjustment and versatility. These products include refrigerator doors, ovens, trash cans, etc. with respect to electronics. These dampers can also be found in the central armrests of cars.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What makes a linear damper different from a shock absorber?

The load is different for linear dampers and shock absorbers. While the linear damper functions in both scenarios and has a notably wider range of applications, the shock absorber only activates when the load makes contact with it.

2. Can linear dampers be used in household appliances?

Absolutely. Manufacturers of vacuum cleaners, washing machines, and refrigerators widely make use of linear dampers to improve the appliance's usage quality.

3. Can I expect less noise from the appliance if it has a linear damper in it?

Linear dampers have the sole purpose of making the movement of the appliances smooth, thereby reducing noise to a great extent.

4. How many features are there in a linear damper?

Linear damper mainly includes valve, damping oil, piston rod, and cylinder. The three parts work in synchronisation to generate damping and achieve the slow movement effect.

5. Are there types of linear dampers available?

Yes, they come in three kinds - Active Return Linear Damper, Passive Return Linear Damper, and Extension Linear Damper.

6. Can I expect long-lasting linear dampers from you?

Absolutely. HXL takes pride in its range of top-quality linear dampers that are sure to meet your demands and be just the right fit for your applications.
