The LORD® Fluid-Free Shimmy Damper offers high-performance damping with a maintenance-free design. It uses surface-effect technology to provide consistent damping for nose gears. Instead of using fluids to resist motion, our Shimmy Damper features a unique rubber formulation with a high-tech lubricant to absorb nose wheel shimmy. Since there is no fluid, this damper will not leak.
Accelerated life testing of the LORD Shimmy Damper has demonstrated that it provides targeted damping after over 5,000 ground-air-ground duty cycles. This represents a product life of more than 10 years of usage on a typical high-use aircraft.
