The BSB SC Series - Elevated Temperature Test

A damper was placed into a furnace at ambient temperature (22°C), the furnace was ignited with the temperature being raised uniformly to 480°C and held for 30 minutes. The temperature was then raised to 700°C and held for a further 90 minutes.

The temperature was then finally raised to 800°C for a further 120 minutes.

The damper was then removed and whilst still “cherry red” was inspected and operated.

The blades and linkage rotated freely with all rivets, welds and components remaining intact.

The scope of the test was to test the damper’s operation at an elevated temperature, in addition to establishing its integrity and distortion.

The conclusion of this test is that the design, construction and engineering tolerances permitted this product to be tested and operated at an “elevated temperature” successfuly.

Special Note: When motors and/or other ancilliaries are used in elevated temperatures, please consult with the manufacturers for suitability to the application.

BSB have concluded other tests at specific temperatures in addition to this test, all with satisfactory results.
