N.R. Murphy has the health of workers in mind with its wide selection of quality dust collectors available to a broad range of industries. However, the leading manufacturer of industrial dust collection systems and accessories also has safety in mind. That is why its portfolio of products includes abort dampers.
Fires and explosions can occur at any time, especially in the woodworking or paper industries, or wherever combustible materials are being conveyed pneumatically. The Murphy abort damper was developed to protect employees and manufacturing facilities from this risk. When installed in the cleaned air stream of a filtering system, it instantly expels the air to atmosphere once activated by a properly installed spark or fire detection system. These units are recommended by NFPA Code 664 (8-4) when recycling filtered air from a wood refuse exhaust system.
The Murphy abort damper is fabricated from heavy gauge reinforced steel. It is available in a full range of sizes for material handling exhaust systems, including lengths from 43 to 107 inches, widths from 20-½ to 58-½ inches, heights from 37-¾ to 114-¼ inches, and weights from 195 to 1,545 pounds.
