Damper Types: Choosing the Right Damper
Dampers serve three basic functions: modulating gas flow, diverting gas flow, or isolating equipment. Each type of damper performs in a different way, with advantages and disadvantages that contribute to its suitability and desirability as a system component.
Selecting the right damper to perform a particular function is perhaps the single most important decision that directly affects reliable long-term operation. Poor selection can result in inefficient damper and system operation or catastrophic failure, often a dangerous challenge to maintenance crews.
In addition to function, many other important considerations also factor into damper selection. Design conditions, construction, material selection, and cost all play a part in choosing the right damper.
