Dampers convert the kinetic energy of the shaft being pushed or pulled into thermal energy by forcing oil through a narrow opening. It takes energy to force the oil through the small opening shearing the oil, converting some of the energy into heat. There are 2 distinct types of dampers – Cavitating dampers are the most cost effecient but will only provide smooth motion when mounted close to vertical. Non-cavitating dampers can be mounted in any orientation without loss of function. There are many diiferent types of non-cavitating dampers that include twin tube (short non-cavitating damper), self centering dampers and standard non-cavitating dampers with a floating piston.
