KMRT: Ruskin Utilizes Special TFD80 Tunnel Damper Design

To meet the high pressure requirements of the project, Ruskin’s Industrial Engineering Group designed a special box-blade version of our TFD80 tunnel damper.  The special TFD80 damper also included factory mounted actuators.  1500 in-lb industrial quality pneumatic actuators with high temp limit switches were provided to meet the 250oC (482oF) temperature requirement.

The station ventilation dampers provided were Ruskin’s FSD60, SD60, CD60 and DIBD-series products, proven throughout the world to be the standard by which all other dampers are measured. 

The design and construction of the project was handled through many of Taiwan’s top consulting engineers and contractors.  Waxlink provided much of the technical input for design and assisted in the consulting responsibilities for many of the stations.

As the specifications called for USA manufacturing, Ruskin plants in Mira Loma (CA) , Parsons (KS) and Fairmont (WV) all teamed up to complete this large order.  In late 2005 the first shipment for Station CR-1 left the Mira Loma plant, followed by approximately fifty (50) more.
