HVAC Control and Balancing Dampers

®
®

Commercial Control Dampers are used in buildings to regulate the flow of air in a HVAC system. They can be used in intake, exhaust, or mixed air applications. There are two categories of control dampers:

• Balancing

• Commercial Control

Balancing

Manual balancing dampers are control dampers that regulate the flow of air but are not intended to be used in applications as a positive shut off or for automatic control. These dampers are shipped with manual hand quadrants, that can be locked in place. There are four balancing damper models available:

• MBD-10/10M is a single blade

• MBD-15 is a multi-blade

• MBDR-50 is a round blade

Remote balancing dampers offer the same function as the manual balancing dampers plus the added benefit of the ability to control the damper remotely at the diffuser or wall plate. These remote balancing dampers are ideal for applications where it is difficult to get access to manually adjust the dampers and balance airflow. The “Quick Control” remote control operates the damper motor by connecting to the wall, ceiling, or diffuser mounted RJ11 connector.

There are two balancing damper models available:

• RBD-10 is a single blade

• RBDR-50 is a round blade.

Variable Symmetric Blade Design (VSB)

Part of Greenheck’s unique approach to damper construction, Variable Symmetric Blade design (VSB) uses two principles to increase damper performance. First, all damper blades are symmetric about their axis. Second, any combination of 4, 5, 6, and 7 in. (102, 127, 152, and 178mm) blade widths are used in a single damper. These two features, part of Greenheck’s standard construction, provide the following advantages:

Increases Mounting Flexibility - Symmetrical blades have identical operating characteristics regardless of airflow direction. This allows a Greenheck control damper to be mounted in either direction of flow, an advantage when installing with space constraints.

Increases Free Area - Traditional damper designs with a single blade width require oversized blade stops, limiting free area when the blades are open (Figure 1). Greenheck is able to reduce or eliminate blade stop height, which maximizes free area, and increases damper performance (Figure 2).

Reduces Actuator Torque - If an unsymmetrical blade closes against airflow, a large amount of torque is needed because the air distribution is unbalanced. Greenheck’s VSB design balances airflow on each side of a symmetrical blade, reducing the torque required to operate the damper. The use of symmetrical blades has allowed Greenheck to reduce the sizes and quantities of actuators used on dampers (Figure 3).

Design and Construction Features

Blades

3V blades are fabricated from a single thickness of 16 ga. (1.5mm) galvanized steel incorporating three longitudinal V-Type grooves running the full length of the blade to increase strength. This blade is standard on models VCD-15, 18, 20, 20V, 23, 23V, and SEVCD-23, designed for low to medium velocity and pressure applications. Airfoil blades are constructed of double skin galvanized steel or heavy gauge extruded aluminum. This blade design presents a lower resistance to airflow and strength that is typically used in high pressure systems. Airfoil blades are standard on models VCD-33, 33V, 34, 40, 42, 42V, 43, 43V and SEVCD-33.

Parallel Versus Opposed Blade Operation

Greenheck control dampers are offered with either parallel or opposed blades. Each style has distinguishing characteristics in regard to the type of operation required.

Parallel blade operation - This configuration requires the damper blades to rotate in the same direction, parallel to one another. Parallel blade orientation is typically used when the damper operates in two positions, open or close.

Opposed blade operation - Adjacent damper blades will rotate opposite one another under opposed blade configuration. Opposed blade configuration is typically used on dampers that modulate airflow.

Frame

Specifically designed for installation inside ductwork, Greenheck control dampers utilize a 5 in. x 1 in. (127mm x 25mm) hat channel frame made of 16 ga. (1.5mm) steel or 0.125 in. (3mm) aluminum. Each frame is built with four separate pieces of material and joined by our Tog-L-Loc ® process with the following advantages:

Rigid frame - When two pieces of 16 ga. (1.5mm) steel are joined by the Tog-L-Loc ® system, the joint has an equivalent thickness of 10 ga. (3.5mm) steel.

Tog-L-Loc ®

Reinforced Corner

Increased corrosion resistance -The high temperatures from welding will remove the galvanized finish from damper frames. As the Tog-L-Loc ® process doesn’t use heat, Greenheck damper frames have greater corrosion resistance by retaining the galvanized coating.

Optimal free area - On all dampers that are 17 in. (432mm) high or less, Greenheck uses a low profile top and bottom frame section to maximize free area.

Square frame - Many damper manufacturers construct each frame from a single piece of sheet metal, formed into shape by bending at three corners and spot welding in one. This type of construction can produce weak corners that are not necessarily 90º, resulting in a frame that is out of square. Symptoms of out-of-square frames include blades that do not close properly and reduced leakage performance. Using four separate frame components (top, bottom, and two sides), Greenheck’s Tog-L-Loc ® process results in four sturdy, 90º joints. This ensures that each Greenheck damper is square and provides optimum performance in the field.

Linkage

Traditional damper linkages are found in the airstream, adding to the pressure drop of the damper blades and frame. Greenheck control dampers have blade linkage concealed in the frame to prevent additional pressure drop. With standard plated steel construction (stainless steel optional), the linkage is engineered to accurately control each and every blade without need for adjustment.

No Top or Bottom

Field Installed Crossover Bracket
Field Installed Crossover Bracket

Greenheck’s control dampers are designed for installation in any position with the blades horizontal. As shown in the drawing at the right, the damper can be turned over so the actuator is on the left or right side.

Multi-Section Dampers

Each of Greenheck’s VCD control dampers have a maximum size for a single damper section or panel. These sections vary from 48 in. x 60 in. (1219mm x 1524mm) to 60 in. x 74 in. (1524mm x 1880mm). Dampers larger than a single section will be made up of equal size sections which, depending upon model and size, may be shipped as a single complete assembly or as separate sections for field assembly. Most multi-section damper assemblies are supplied with a factory installed jackshaft so all sections operate together. Models VCD-15 and VCD-18 utilize a field-installed crossover bracket to connect adjacent sections.

Factory Installed Jackshaft

Damper assemblies (larger than one section) are not designed to be structurally self-supporting. Additional horizontal bracing is recommended to support the weight of the damper and vertical bracing should be installed if required to hold against system pressure.

Factory Sleeve Option

Greenheck control dampers are available in factory furnished sleeves in lengths up to 48 in. (1219mm). Sleeves are constructed out of 10 through 20 ga. (3.25 through 0.91 mm) galvanized steel. When dampers are installed in factory sleeves, the “A” dimension specifies the location of damper within the sleeve.

One Piece Retaining Angles

Greenheck's one piece retaining angle, the POC (literally named for being

a “Piece of Cake”) makes control damper installation a breeze. The POC

angle is designed by riveting four pieces together at the corners to form one piece. When installed the angle simply wraps around the sleeve of the damper and fastens in place.

The OCI option provides two switches to indicate damper position. One set of contacts close when the damper blades are at their open position and the other set to close when the damper blades are at their closed position. The switches are physically linked to a damper blade and therefore give a true representation of the damper’s position.

Damper Performance Testing Criteria

®
®

Pressure drop testing was conducted in accordance with AMCA Standard 500-D using the three configurations shown. All data has been corrected to represent standard air at a density of .075 lb/ft 3 (1.2 kg/m 3 ).

Actual pressure drop found in any HVAC system is a combination of many factors. This pressure drop information along with an analysis of other system influences should be used to estimate actual pressure losses for a damper installed in a given HVAC system.

Figure 5.3 Illustrates a fully ducted damper. This configuration has the lowest pressure drop of the three test configurations because entrance and exit losses are minimized by straight duct runs upstream and downstream of the damper.

Figure 5.2 Illustrates a ducted damper exhausting air into an open area. This configuration has a lower pressure drop than Figure 5.5 because entrance losses are minimized by a straight duct run upstream of the damper.

Figure 5.5 Illustrates a plenum mounted damper. This configuration has the highest pressure drop because of extremely high entrance and exit losses due to the sudden changes of area in the system.
