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 C ...

KMRT: Witness Tests at Ruskin Headquarters Close the Deal

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.

Ruskin solves the Caribbean design challenges

The Hato International Airport upgrade was not without its design challenges.  Due to the salt laden, corrosive atmosphere of the Caribbean Ocean and the warm tropical climate, this project required a unique combination of Ruskin products.  Three distinct models of Ruskin high performance louvers, as well as Ruskin sunshades, were specified and selected by Aviation Services Bechtel Civil Company.  In addition, Ruskin louvers were designed to meet high windload applications that may occur during hurricane conditions. Ruskin provided structural calculations and built the louvers to the exact requirements of the building.  Our industry best 20-year warranty on our Kynar®finish means not only will these louvers enhance the airport’s appearance but will provide years of exceptional, maintenance-free service. The choice of Ruskin’s decorative sunshades provided both function and beauty while protecting the structure from the heat of the Caribbean sun.
