With our high quality buffer products rugged, high-capacity, efficient energy absorption is achieved utilizing a variable orificing design which keeps the output shock force to a minimum.

Product Lineup

ITT Enidine HI (Heavy Industry) Series Shock AbsorbersHeavy Industry Series Buffers (HI Series)

Enidine’s Heavy Industry Series Shock Absorbers (HI Series) safely protect heavy machinery, cranes and equipment during the transfer of materials and movement of products.

The large-bore, high-capacity buffers (shock absorbers) are individually designed to decelerate moving loads under various conditions and in compliance with industry mandated safety standards. Control of bridge cranes, trolley platforms, overhead cranes, large container transfer and transportation safety stops are typical applications. Industry-proven design technologies, coupled with the experience of a globally installed product base, ensure deliverable performance that exceeds customer expectations.

Prior to HI Series buffer manufacture, computer-simulated response curves are generated to model actual conditions, verify product performance, confirm damping characteristics and generate unique custom-orificed designs that accommodate multi-condition or specific damping requirements.

The HI Series of buffers by Enidine feature a nitrogen-charged return system that allows for soft deceleration and positive return in a maintenance-free package. The oversize bore area results in optimal energy absorption capabilities and increased internal safety factors. Enidine’s state-of-the-art testing facilities ensure integrity of design and product performance.

Jarret Series Buffers

Industrial Buffer for Large Applications

The design of the Jarret Series Buffers incorporates and harnesses the exceptional compression and shear properties of specially formulated silicone elastomers, resulting in a truly innovative solution. By leveraging these unique characteristics, the Jarret Series Buffers seamlessly integrate energy absorption and return spring functions into a single unit, eliminating the requirement for an extra gas or mechanical spring stroke return mechanism.

With its simple yet effective design, the Jarret Series Buffers offer unmatched reliability in performance. Engineered to withstand rigorous demands, they ensure consistent and dependable operation even in challenging environments. Additionally, these buffers exhibit a high damping coefficient, effectively dissipating vibrations and minimizing the impact of dynamic forces.

Notably, the Jarret Series Buffers display remarkable stability and resilience across a wide range of temperatures, showcasing low sensitivity to temperature variances. This feature guarantees reliable and predictable performance, allowing for consistent operation in diverse conditions.

Experience the exceptional benefits of these buffers, where simplicity, reliability, high damping coefficient, and temperature stability converge to provide optimal performance in a wide range of applications.
