Functional description

The volume flow controllers work without an external power supply.

A damper blade with low-friction bearings is adjusted by aerodynamic forces such that a set volume flow rate is maintained within the differential pressure range.

The aerodynamic forces of the airflow create a closing torque on the damper blade.

The bellows extends and increases this force while at the same time acting as an oscillation damper.

The closing force is countered by a leaf spring. As the differential pressure changes, the leaf spring adjusts the position of the damper blade such that the volume flow rate is maintained almost exactly.

Efficient commissioning

The volume flow rate setpoint value can be set quickly and easily using the pointer on the external scale; no measurements are required.

The advantage over flow adjustment dampers is that there is no need for repeat measurements or adjustments by an air conditioning engineer. Should the system pressure change, e.g. by opening or closing of duct sections, the flow rates in the entire system will also change if flow adjustment dampers are used; however, this is not the case with mechanical self-powered volume flow controllers. A mechanical self-powered controller reacts immediately and adjusts the damper blade such that the set constant volume flow rate is maintained.
