The fire damper can be equipped with a bipolar microswitch, which indicates the closing of the shut-off blade. The limitswitch has potential-free contacts (no=normally open and nc=normally closed), which can be used to control other fire dampers equipped with an electric release (e.g., triggering an alarm in the fire suppression system).
The maximum operating voltage and current is 400 V, 10 A.

Release types

The fire damper always has thermal release operation (a fuse). Additional release systems available:

  • Electric signal release, solenoid operation 
  • Electromagnetic operation 
  • Pneumatic operation with pressurised gas (e.g. CO 2 )

Solenoid operation

The fire damper can be released with an electrical signal, which is initiated by a smoke detector, microswitch / pressure switch or similar. When the circuit is closed, the operating voltage is switched to the magnet and the damper closes.

 Option S1 S2
 Power supply 24 VDC 230 VAC
 Power consumption (design specification) 15 W 40 VA
 Enclosure class (minimum) IP20 IP20
 ED 100% 100%

 

Electromagnetic operation

The fire damper stays open when the electrical circuit is closed. The damper is shut by opening the circuit.

Note: Interruption of the power supply closes the damper. An uninterrupted power supply (e.g., a battery backup system) is recommended.

 Option EM
 Power supply 24 VDC
 Power consumption (design specification) 15 W
 Enclosure class (minimum) IP20
 ED 100%

 

Pneumatic operation

The damper is connected to the fire suppression system. When the system is activated, pressure acting on the pneumatic cylinder releases the spring, allowing the damper to close. The actuator is suited for common pressure levels used in fire suppression systems. The lowest operating pressure for the actuator is 200 kPa.

Function

The Halton FDE unit is a circular fire damper of fire resistance class EIS 15, ES 90 and E120, which prevents fire and smoke from spreading in ventilation ducts. The fire damper is equipped with either a motorised actuator or a manual actuation arrangement. Under both options, a fuse reacts to a rise in temperature, causing a spring-return blade to close. If the power in the motorised actuator system is switched off, the blade closes automatically. The Halton FDE can be installed in vertical position, and setting is performed from outside the device.

The fire damper is made of fireproof materials. Once the fire damper has closed, the blade and sealing close the duct tightly, effectively preventing the spreading of flue gases.

The fire damper is delivered complete with a spring-return actuator and a fuse that is activated at 72 ºC. Alternatively, the fire damper can be delivered as a manually operated unit. Both actuators have a visual position indicator.
The nominal fuse release temperature is 50 or 72 °C, but  100, 120, 150 and 200 °C are available for special cases.
The FDE fire damper can be connected to the HSM control and testing system. The HSM enables the use of smoke detectors in ductwork or in rooms. The FDE fire damper can also be connected to common building automation systems.

Installation

There are no restrictions on the position of use.

Check the functioning of the fire damper before installation.
Clean the damper after installation.
Set the fire damper by turning the shut-off blade to the desired position with the aid of the indicator handle. Lock the damper by turning the fuse manually. See also the section Documents .

Installation on concrete or masonry walls

1.        Screw and fixing plug
ØD1    Product size + about 50 mm

When the fire damper is installed on a concrete or masonry wall or ceiling between fire compartments, there are no restrictions on the position of use.
An opening is always left in the separating element for the fire damper, and the product is subsequently grouted into this.
To make installation easier, all products come with an installation flange, which is used to fasten the fire damper to the concrete surface with screws before grouting.

During installation, the fire damper and actuator must be protected with, e.g., a plastic cover.
The correct operation of the fire damper must be ensured before and after grouting.
When the damper is installed on a concrete or masonry wall or ceiling, the size of the installation hole is about D + 50 mm.

Installation on lightweight plasterboard walls

ØD1   Product size + about 5 mm
1.       Fireproof sealing mass
2.       Steel frame
3.       Plasterboard
4.       Mineral wool
5.       Screw

When the fire damper is installed on a lightweight plasterboard wall between fire compartments, a small opening for the fire damper must be left in the plasterboard walls.
There are no restrictions on the position of use.
To make installation easier, the fire damper comes with an installation flange, which is used to fasten the fire damper to, e.g., the steel frame of the panel wall.

The space between the fire damper and the plasterboard wall is grouted with fire prevention mastic. During installation, the fire damper and actuator must be protected with, e.g., a plastic cover.
The correct operation of the fire damper must be ensured after application of the fire prevention mastic.
Set the fire damper manually by turning the shut-off blade to the desired position with the aid of the indicator handle. Lock the damper by turning the fuse manually. If the shut-off blade does not lock, the fuse is worn out and must be replaced.
Detailed installation instructions, as well as an installer's installation certificate form, are supplied with each product. See also the section Documents / Installation Instructions .

Servicing

A manual fire damper can be reset after the fuse temperature has fallen below the release temperature. If the shutoff blade does not lock, the fuse is worn out and must be replaced. The fuse can be changed from outside the fire damper.

The fuse of a fire damper equipped with an electric actuator must be replaced if the fuse has been released because of a rise in temperature in the duct.

To ensure proper operation of fire dampers, they should be inspected regularly. The minimum recommended inspection period is one year or according to the building code It is recommended that the fire damper is connected to automatic fire damper management system HSM (operating voltage 24-VAC).

Upon failure during testing of the fire damper, maintenance service shall be ordered from an authorised Halton representative to ensure appropriate operation of the product.
