Slinging Method

Slinging Method for Large Viscous Dampers

Handling Large Dampers

Eyebolt holes (2, 3 or 4) are provided in the damper flange to move damper in horizontal position such as removing from packing case. The thread size is stamped adjacent to one of the holes. 

A soft sling (rope, leather, etc.) through the central bore of the damper can be used to change the damper from horizontal position to vertical.

When the damper is vertical, sling guides can be fixed and wire slings passed under the damper before temporally resting the damper on wood supports.

After passing wire slings around the damper between guides as shown in the drawing the soft sling may be changed to wire sling for mounting on the crankshaft flange.

Selection of rope or wire sizes will be determined by damper weight and local safety regulations.
