ACTIONAIR Dampers Serve Liverpool’s Waterfront Venue For The Stars

Low leakage air control for the air conditioning and ventilation systems serving Liverpool’s Arena and Conference Centre is provided by units from Actionair’s comprehensive damper range.

The new £164 million waterfront complex provides a range of state-of-the-art facilities with the 10,000 eat Echo Arena linked by a glazed galleria to the BT Convention Centre, which offers its own 1350 auditorium and 7,000m2 of exhibition space.

It’s a world-class venue, which has already hosted concert performances by stars like Elton John, Bob Dylan and Beyonce.

Low closed-blade leakage Air/Shield Oppose-Blade Dampers are suitable for air conditioning and ventilation systems requiring air control and low closed blade leakage characteristics.

Ideal for system air balancing, Actionair Aerofoil Volume Control Dampers are field-proven in a wide range of applications. The units supplied to the Liverpool ACC project were equipped with extended stainless steel shafts for the attachment of linkages for motor drives. Shafts are calibrated to give visual indication of blade position.

The Air/Shield Aerofoil range is suitable for use with total system operating pressures up to 1000 Pa and velocities up to 12m/s. Casing leakage conforms to DW144 Class C up to 1000 Pa.

Units feature opposed blades with a special aerodynamic ribbed, doubleskin construction suitable for use with total system operating pressures up to 1000 Pa and velocities up to 12m/s. Casing leakage conforms to DW144 Class C up to 1000 Pa.

To maximise the potential number of single-module/single-drive configurations, Actionair now offers a range of flanged Energy/Shield Dampers for ductwork applications above 1000mm in width.

Developed with the aid of the Ruskin Air Movement Laboratory in the United States - one of the most sophisticated of its kind in the world - Actionair Energy/Shield 35 Air Control and System Balancing Dampers are designed for horizontal mounting in air conditioning and ventilation ductwork.

They feature dampers with a triple V configuration fabricated from galvanised steel. Damper blades are housed in a deep galvanised steel frame with 40mm flanges and prepunched corner holes to match proprietary duct flange systems.

Blade drive mechanisms are mounted out of the air stream to minimise pressure drop and noise generation.

The Actionair Energy/Shield 36 combines all the performance capability of the 35 design with the additional feature of a “shut off” function thanks to its low leakage performance when the blades are closed. This low closed blade leakage is achieved by means of stainless steel side gaskets and special blade seals of a synthetic material. The closed blade leakage of the Actionair Energy/Shield 36 damper design conforms to EN1751 Class 2.

Consultants for the Liverpool ACC project were Aecom Europe and the mechanical and electrical contractor was Haden Young Ltd. Ductwork contractors were Senior Hargreaves.
