In the mid-1980s professional race engine builders approached Vibratech TVD, parent company to Fluidampr. Their challenge was to apply extremely durable, commercially proven viscous harmonic balancer technology to motorsports. Fluidampr was born.

Since, we continuously innovate our design and manufacturing process to exceed the evolving demands of racing. Strategic position of mass, optimal weight, superior durability, ever higher RPMs, high ambient temp with low air-flow engine bay environments, and broad range damping are areas Fluidampr continues to lead on with viscous damper technology.  Today, breakthroughs from Fluidampr’s involvement in motorsports translate back to Vibratech TVD. These are applied to OEM automotive, marine performance, aviation and defense industry applications.

OEM factory race teams to grassroots Saturday night racers have made Fluidampr the leading viscous harmonic balancer in motorsports. Hot rodders and restorers trust Fluidampr. Performance Diesel competitors value our diesel heritage and high power experience. Import owners appreciate that we optimize damper design and performance to their engine’s needs. From R&D to sourcing materials to manufacturing and assembly, all are proud it’s done right here in the USA. Shipped world-wide.
