Tenneco Introduces Add-On Valve Technology 

The company says the RideRefine SDD valve brings new levels of versatility, tunability and comfort to passive damper performance.

Tenneco has expanded its Monroe OE Solutions passive valving portfolio with the introduction of a tunable stroke dependent damping (SDD) add-on valve. The new Monroe RideRefine SDD valve works in conjunction with Monroe OE Solutions main valve technologies to deliver comfort and control characteristics.

The company says stroke dependent damping dramatically enhances comfort by reducing damping levels during short strokes of the unit’s internal piston. A bypass directs oil into the RideRefine SDD valve, which provides separate, tunable damping of small strokes for reduced noise, vibration and harshness. At the end of the short piston stroke, the damper’s main valve resumes normal operation.

The tunability of the new SDD valve enables vehicle manufacturers to select the ideal comfort profile for short piston strokes in each vehicle model.

“The RideRefine SDD valve brings new levels of versatility, tunability and comfort to passive damper performance,” said Romain Nollet, group vice president and general manager, Monroe Ride Solutions. “Stroke dependent damping helps to ensure that the dampers effectively filter out minor road inputs on highways and other smooth roads, thus providing a feeling of luxury and plushness to the ride experience.”
