HELB Damper

PMT manufactures High Energy Line Break (HELB) dampers for safety related applications.  These dampers, also known as Pressure Transient Isolation (PTID) dampers, are heavy duty dampers that are designed to isolate rooms or systems in the event of a main steam or feed water line break.  The PMT HELB dampers are extremely fast acting and have extremely low leakage.  All dampers are custom designed and manufactured for your application.  They can be designed to close upon reverse of flow direction or an increase in flow.  We can also integrate the HELB damper with a fire damper to make one compact assembly.  PMT dampers are manufactured in house utilizing the best available materials and components and will last for the life of the plant virtually maintenance free.  With our airflow testing capabilities, PMT can run a complete set of performance and operations tests on your damper prior to shipment to verify functionality.
