Stack Dampers


for 24 hour Emergency Support

Product: Stack Damper

Stack dampers are used to reduce heat loss and prevent rain water from entering your process. Due to the environment these dampers are subject to, it is important that you choose a durable damper from a reliable manufacturer.

Forney  stack dampers can help improve the efficiency of your plant.

Product Overview

Forney supplies a complete line of high quality stack dampers to utility and heavy industrial customers.  Forney dampers utilize field proven designs into a unique engineered solution to meet your plants specific needs. Proper functioning dampers are vital to the operation of your plant, so we put our design emphasis on areas critical to the effectiveness and life of the damper. Forney’s stack damper can automatically open when excess pressure builds up in the boiler preventing internal damage.

Durable Construction
• Standard material used is ASTM A36 carbon steel; however other material such as ASTM A588 Cor- Ten, A516 or 304 stainless steel can be used.
• A rain trough with drain directs water through the frame by a threaded pipe which can be added to for a more desirable location.
• Four (4) lifting lugs are evenly spaced around the frame for crane pickup.
Reliable Operation
• Redundant limit switches are provided on the non-drive shaft.
• The actuator is equipped with a 4-20ma feedback positioner to track precisely where the blades are during cycling.
Simplified Maintenance
• Two 6” diameter view ports are mounted 180 degrees apart.
• Blades can be designed for 500 lbs point load with mechanical lockouts on each blade to support maintenance personnel for internal service.
• All Forney stack dampers have OHSA approved linkage guards to protection personnel around the stack damper.

These items combine to make the difference between an adequate damper and one that is truly reliable, durable and economical to maintain.
