A Tuned Liquid Damper, supplied by these professionals

Flow Engineering provides the production and the installation of dampening systems. To avoid transportation costs, these experts provide project oversight for on-site construction or at a desired local manufacturer. In addition to that, Flow Engineering works with desired providers of heavy lifting services. These professionals perform the routine upkeep, if necessary, for the dampening solutions that they have supplied. If desired, they inspect, evaluate and refurbish third party dampening solutions.

The applications of a Tuned Liquid Damper

One of the structures that they supply, is a Tuned Liquid Damper. Using a Tuned Liquid Damper is an exceptional way to decrease the vibration of slim constructions. These professionals have more than 20 years of experience in calculating, designing and installing Tuned Liquid Dampers and Tuned Mass Dampers all over the world. Their first-class systems are applicable to flagpoles, chimneys and many other slender constructions. However, their high-end systems can not only be used for the decrease of vibrations, but also to prevent damage due to weakness.

How does a Tuned Liquid Damper work?

A Tuned Liquid Damper is a less common option in comparison to the Tuned Mass Damper when it comes to reducing vibrations of slender structures. A Tuned Liquid Damper is a container that is in part filled with a mix of water and glycol. The damper has no moving parts, because the dampening is provided by the splashing of the water and glycol mixture in the damper. The Tuned Liquid Damper contains a mass that can fluctuate either horizontally or vertically. Therefore, it will oscillate in the opposite direction of the crosswind loads or waves.
