A damper is a multi-element flow control device used for industrial airflow regulation. Poor airflow management can have many detrimental performance effects, such as increased energy costs, more frequent maintenance, and lower process efficiency. There are many different damper designs, and each is ideally suited to a specific application. This article will focus specifically on the unique Forney BiPlaneTM Louver damper, which has numerous benefits when compared to traditional designs.
The BiPlaneTM Louver damper is designed to provide both isolation and flow control functions to air handling systems. Listed below are some unique features and functions of the BiPlaneTM Louver damper design and a brief explanation of how these functions solve some problems typically faced with dampers in general.
The BiPlane™ Louver damper is used for both flow control and isolation. This makes it useful in a wide range of applications, some of which are listed below:
Forney offers a range of standard damper systems in addition to the BiPlaneTM Louver damper, as listed below:
BiPlaneTM dampers are designed with a range of features that improve their reliability, cost, and maintenance requirements when compared to standard double-louver dampers.
The Forney BiPlaneTM Louver damper design is the most reliable louver-style airflow control and isolation solution. It has the added benefits of increased process efficiency, reduced maintenance, and lower energy requirements. These benefits are due to the unique louver design that not only allows air to flow through it in the open position but also allows for a low-profile system for high-pressure air sealing.
