Flamgard Calidair’s blast dampers are designed to prevent blast forces entering ventilation duct systems or a wide range of installations where a blast could result in loss of life and/or equipment or material. They are rigidly constructed and fully welded for this purpose and comprises of two sections: a dynamic debris catcher directs the blast onto the blade pack. This consequently closes under blast pressure, isolating the blast force and preventing blast damage or loss. The blade open position is adjusted and held by a ‘blast break’ mechanism, ensuring safety and reliability of the system.
