Dampers for Biomass Energy Plants

Kelair custom engineers industrial-grade dampers for biomass produced energy applications

Biomass Plant Dampers

As biomass becomes an increasingly competitive fuel source, custom dampers are also becoming a high demand to support these carbon-neutral operations.

Increasingly strict legislation on carbon emissions is urging power plants to convert to biomass resources. Many previously coal powered plants are looking to biomass for a dependable source of energy to sustain production while still being able to align with environmental regulations. Organic matter and raw materials like wood, food and human waste, or recyclables provide unique opportunities for stable power solutions. However, these resources require quality dampers to meet the unique needs of each plant equipment and biomass material type.

Kelair’s Refractory dampers are manufactured to withstand temperatures up to 1900 F in corrosive, particulate and/or process gas environments. This unique design helps reduce heat loss and provide erosion protection for the frame.

Inlet Vane Dampers

Inlet Vane Dampers

Inlet Vane Dampers work with fans and blowers to enhance their performance by controlling air volume and fan shut-off. Kelair’s design boasts no external linkage, eliminating pinch points and damage to the assembly.

Backdraft Dampers

Backdraft Dampers

Kelair’s Backdraft dampers are engineered to allow airflow in one direction and prevent reverse airflow. Backdraft dampers control airflow in ventilation systems either to modulate or to shut off moving air through a fan opening when it is turned off.

Stack Cap Dampers

Stack Cap Dampers

Kelair's Stack Cap Dampers isolate the stack opening to prevent foreign material from entering and conserve warmth when the stack is shut down. The dampers deliver accurate airflow and isolation at high temperatures, reducing the stack effect.
