Radial Vane Dampers
Radial Vane dampers are multi-bladed dampers that are best suited for fan inlet applications where the use of such a damper can enhance the performance of the fan. By creating a positive swirl distribution at the inlet of the fan this facilitates the fan operation and therefore reduces horsepower consumption.
Making adjustments to the radial vane damper blade positions during fan operation can also throttle the air flow into the fan enabling the fan to run in a more ideal region of its fan curve.
