K40 shock absorber

Shock absorber K40 for commercial vehicles

The shock absorber product line K40 is a system specifically designed for use in commercial vehicles. It is an advanced version of the highly successful K100-40 system. During their design work our engineers took into account the needs of the vehicle, the operator and vehicle drivers alike. For vehicles, operators and drivers safe road-holding capacity, acceptable value for money and sufficient comfort, respectively, have been the fundamental input parameters. The key novelty of the K40 system is that it can be mounted and hence, recycled. With due care paid, its useful lifetime might easily reach that of the vehicle.

Key features:

  • Damping force adjustable in a wide range
  • Damping force adjustable irrespective of the direction of stress
  • Mountable, recyclable design
  • No metallic contact between friction elements
  • Increased amount of oil for efficiency
  • Special closure and sealing system for the shock absorber
  • Custom built valve design developed by Kárászy Kft.

The closure of the K40 shock absorber has been accomplished using specially design seals. The point is that the specifically designed sealing is able to follow more easily the lateral plunger movements encountered during the operation of the shock absorber compared to a general solution. There is less chance this way to get contamination into the inner parts of the shock absorber. As a result, K40 shock absorbers preserve their dampening ability on the long run and represent long term satisfaction to operators and vehicle drivers alike.

Engineering details:

Maximum damping force (in tension) at a speed of 0.52 m/s: 9 kN

Diameter of dust protector tube/shock absorber casing: : Ø 72 mm / Ø 60 mm

K45 heavy duty shock absorber

Shock absorber K45 for commercial vehicles

The shock absorber product line K45 is a system designed for commercial vehicles with a large mass. Its properties are identical with those of the K40 system but its maximum damping force exceeds substantially the former, therefore it can be recommended primarily for heavy duty trucks and vehicles 

Key features:

  • Damping force adjustable in a wide range
  • Damping force adjustable irrespective of the direction of stress
  • Mountable, recyclable design
  • No metallic contact between friction elements
  • Increased amount of oil for efficiency
  • Special closure and sealing system for the shock absorber
  • Custom built valve design developed by Kárászy Kft.

The K45 system is basically identical with the K40 system, but due to its larger diameter a lot greater dampening force can be achieved by it in pulling direction. This is how it provides an optimum running stability and quality to large mass power vehicles such as power machines, large coaches, trailer trucks etc.  

Engineering details:

Maximum damping force (in tension) at a speed of 0.52 m/s: 12 kN

Diameter of the anti-dust tube / shock absorber casing:  Ø 72 mm / Ø 60 mm
