 Custom Damper Drives

Type K Damper Drives offer choices of Electric, Pneumatic, Rotary or Linear damper drives to meet your specific needs. Our unique ability to provide retrofit drives makes replacement as easy as possible. The replacement drive will be pre-measured and custom manufactured to drop right into place on your existing mounting bolts with the output lever in the EXACT position of the original. This eliminates the need to perform additional work building platforms, re-engineering linkage rods and making other adjustments required when purchasing "off the shelf" drives.

   Improved Heat Rate with Better Flow Monitoring
Accusonic ultrasonic flowmeter

Accusonic makes flow measurement systems for the Fossil and Nuclear power markets. They focus on the more tough applications, such as plant intake and discharge water flows, cooling tower recalculating flows and condenser cooling flows.


Any application with large pipe sizes, difficult installation constraints (i.e. limited straight run, buried pipes), and high accuracy requirements would be an application that they'd look at.


Accusonic is also qualified for non-safety related applications in nuclear plants. Monitoring these flows can help customers realize cost savings in terms of improved plant efficiency, reduced O&M costs and compliance with environmental regulations (i.e. U.S. EPA Clean Water Act section 316(b)).
