To meet the requirements of the project specifications, Ruskin hosted two groups of engineers and contractors from Taiwan in 2005 and 2006 to witness damper testing at Ruskin’s AMCA Accredited Laboratory at their worldwide headquarters in Kansas City, MO. 

During the witness tests, the following damper performance was evaluated:

  • Damper Leakage
  • Damper Pressure Drop
  • Elevated Temperature of 250oC (482oF) for 1 hour
  • Structural Integrity
  • Damper Closure performance

After the tests were completed, Steven Chen of Waxlink had this to say. 

“The customers are very happy with the quality of the Ruskin dampers.  The rugged construction of the special TFD80 Box-Blade damper is suited well to the application since the dampers must withstand many daily pressure transversals up to 6kPa.”

With the expected expansion of the system adding Blue and Brown lines in the next 2-3 years, Ruskin and Waxlink International can play a major role in the rapid economic growth of this flourishing city in Southern Taiwan.
