The maximum airflow velocity is 20ms-1. GENERAL The IMOS-RK and IMOS-RKT regulating dampers are designed for the smooth control of the volume of airflow. In dampers where the width is more than 1000 mm a vertical channel 3 is inserted in the middle. The blades 4 are set in opposed directions through a cogwheel transmission. The adjusting and arresting mechanism 8 provides adjustment and fixing of channel blades 4 in selected position on the damper. It is possible to connect the damper to the flanges of width 20mm (P20) and width 30 mm (P30). In the ends the blades are fitted with sealing sheets 7 with self-adhesive seals. acceptance and use of these products as of January 1. The specifications apply to design. The IMOSRKT tight damper is also designed for closing the airflow tightly but is not manufactured as gastight.RKT dampers where the width is less than 1000mm form one field.r.RKT regulating dampers consist of rectangular frame manufactured from horizontal 1 and vertical 2 channel frames between which the channel blades 4 are situated.

Every damper functionality is tested by the manufacturer. M10-(22-30 Nm).The manufacturer grants 24 months´ guarantee from the dispatch date. M8-(11-16 Nm). IV. the damper must be connected with four M8×20 sized screws. 8 TPI 16-05 . When mounting a damper with dimensions equal to or greater than 750×750 we should combine screws in the corners with retracting connectors or only retracting connectors are used along the whole perimeter of the frame. which are inserted into the holes produced according to the carobs of duct contra flange. If the damper is to be mounted on tinny flanges smaller in size than 750×750. In equipment requiring strictly tight closure of dampers it is recommended that after 10 years of operation the tightness of the seals on the blades is checked.9 Mounting and adjusting the regulation damper During the lifetime of the damper no maintenance is required.III. Direction of the opening and closing of the damper is indicated by stickers on the side channel 2 where also the damper holder is 4. The same result can be attained also by applying two sets of four retracting connectors fitted onto the frame channel with a width of 25 mm. Prior to the mounting of the regulating damper it is required that holes are drilled on its frame that correspond with the size of the opposite holes on the duct flange. Acceptance is due to valid instructions in the company. MOUNTING AND MAINTENANCE Mounting of the damper is provided by regular means used by mounting of ventilation units. CHECKING. After adjusting the amount of airflow the adjusting lever 5 is fixed to the damper with a screw 7 and a wing nut 6 to the lever holder 4. Fig. AND WARRANTY The manufacturer provides a quality and completeness checking. The values of the tightening torque depend on the mechanical properties of the used screws of particular size and they are following: M6-(5-7 Nm). These values are applicable only if a seal made on the base of technical rubber or a material with similar features is used between the flanges. Between the flanges it is needed to insert a soft sealing with one side being self-adhesive. ACCEPTING. The adjusting and arresting mechanism allow adjusting the channel blades of the dampers.
