Ruskin® to Showcase Pressure-Independent Automatic Balancing Dampers (ABDS) and Variety of Air Control Solutions at 2017 AHR Expo

Grandview, MO – Ruskin will showcase its pressure-independent automatic balancing dampers (ABDs) along with other new air control products and equipment at booth C3334 during 2017 AHR Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada, Jan. 30 to Feb. 1, 2017. Ruskin models ABD and ABD-SEA (with grille) dampers automatically regulate damper positioning for precise and automatic airflow in both supply and exhaust applications. The result is energy-saving performance that mitigates stack effect in high-rise buildings and improves comfort for building occupants.

In addition to ABDs, the Ruskin booth will feature a variety of notable products, including dynamic fire dampers, commercial and industrial dampers, smoke dampers, air measuring and control tools, grilles and louvers. Visitors to the booth will also see a selection of equipment designed for heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) applications, such as energy recovery ventilators.

Interactive dynamic displays, such as a stack effect demonstrator, and other educational material will be available for attendees. Ruskin company experts will also be delivering a presentation on “Enhanced Technology to Improve the Accuracy of Airflow Measurement” at the AHR Expo Technology Theater on Monday, Jan. 30 at 2:15 in Theater A.

“We’re excited to bring our line of innovative products to AHR Expo and introduce them to an audience of industry professionals from around the world,” said Mark Saunders, director of sales and marketing at Ruskin. “Our technical team looks forward to sharing our products’ unique capabilities with attendees and speaking with them about the wide range of applications that can benefit from Ruskin air control solutions.”
