Stack dampers are commonly used in a wide range of gas turbine power plant applications.

 

Function: 

  • Stack shut-off
  • Rain water protection and drainage

 

Advantages: 

  • Prevents cooling down of boilers during short shut down phases
  • Overpressure relief in case of process upsets
  • Short delivery times

 

Used in: 

  • HRSG stacks 
  • Bypass or exhaust stacks

 

Standard:  

  • The 2-blade damper version has been completely standardised for round stacks in combined cycle gas turbine plants.
  • Actuator electrically driven
  • External Insulation
  • External limit switches to monitor blade position

 

Other versions:  

  • 4-blade design
  • Square or rectangular stack damper
  • Internally insulated stack dampers
