In vehicles like motorcycle, car, bus or truck etc., shock absorbers are installed to save passengers from shocks and damage to the vehicle. Such shocks may get generated in a vehicle, while driving on ill maintained road.
Presently, a shocker comprises of two valves; one is compression and another is a tension valve. Both these valves are spring based. Across these valves, oil moves through a very small size openings (between the circular metal plates) due to which, often, oil gets overheated and oil-foam are formed. This results in poor performance and loss in working efficiency of a shocker.
Present technology, has potential to solve both problems i.e. overheating as well as foaming in oil. In present technology, compression as well as tension valve does not have any spring or movable parts. Opening sizes are sufficiently large due to which oil moves very easily and a shocker perform well for a longer duration without losing on its working efficiency.
Present technology (prototypes of both these valves) has already been tested in a shocker factory. However, technical validation from concerned government agency, in the matter is yet to be obtained.
