Volume Controlled Dampers are a key component in maintaining a comfortable and efficient HVAC system. These types of dampers control the flow of air within a building or facility, and allow you to regulate airflow in each room or zone. Without volume controlled dampers, there would be no way to balance the airflow in an HVAC system.
AWV has a wide range of volume controlled dampers to suit the specific needs of your building. With many in-duct mounting options, AWV volume controlled dampers are designed to serve two primary functions: two position (open/closed) or proportional (modulating) volume control. These dampers are designed to easily drop in to a number of different applications including:
Face and bypass
Volume controlled dampers are critical for saving energy. By regulating the flow of air in each room or zone, you can ensure that only the necessary amount of heating or cooling is being used. Controlling the amount of outdoor air introduced to the HVAC system also has a tremendous impact on energy usage. Introducing more outdoor air than necessary can quickly become expensive. AWV volume controlled dampers can significantly reduce your energy costs by allowing HVAC systems to be properly balanced to the design specifications.
In addition to energy savings, volume controlled dampers can also improve indoor air quality. By allowing you to properly adjust the flow of air in each room or zone, you can prevent the build-up of stale or polluted air. Providing fresh, ventilated air is a must and doing it efficiently requires volume controlled dampers. Proper circulation improves the overall comfort and health of your building’s occupants.
AWV dampers are designed to withstand the rigors of commercial and industrial environments, to help ensure reliable performance and long-lasting durability.
Able to operate with face velocities up to 6,000 fpm and with pressure differentials of up to 48” wg, AWV dampers can meet any application’s requirements. AWV also offers volume controlled dampers with optional thermal breaks, blade seals, and the ability to operate in temperatures up to 250°F.
Our team of experts can help you determine the best volume controlled damper solution for your HVAC system, taking into account factors such as the size and layout of your building, your specific needs and budget, and the specific application. We offer a range of options, including dampers that are manually adjustable or that can be controlled remotely via an actuator and a central controller.
