Jackson Systems has developed a major breakthrough in zoning technology that can eliminate the need for bypass dampers in most zoning systems. The new patent pending Barometric Zone Damper(TM) reduces installation time and costs, improves system efficiency, and requires no adjustments.

Jackson Systems, LLC, known for providing solutions to contractors, announces a major breakthrough in zoning technology. The patent pending Barometric Zone Damper™ (BZD) eliminates the need for a costly and time consuming bypass damper installation.

The BZD damper works like any standard damper with one exception – it has a built-in barometric relief mechanism that eliminates the need for a bypass damper. A typical HVAC system is designed around 0.1” wc. Tests indicate that a system can handle 0.3” wc or double the rated cfm through the registers before noise becomes a problem. Unlike a standard zone damper, the BZD has been designed with both a fixed and a hinged blade and is controlled by an actuator. The upper half of the blade is fixed to the shaft of the damper and the lower half is hinged to the upper half of the blade. The lower half of the blade then functions as a barometric pressure relief for the system. The Barometric Zone Damper will allow the barometric half of the closed zone damper to open and bleed a small amount of air into the zones that are not calling, keeping the system static pressure at an acceptable level. Tests also indicate that bleeding a small amount of conditioned air to the zone(s) that are not calling has little impact on the temperature in the zone(s) because in most cases they are above or below setpoint, so the zone(s) can absorb the additional conditioned air. The BZD damper is factory-set and should not need any adjustments.
“I think we have an industry game changer,” says Ron Jackson, President of Jackson Systems, LLC and inventor of the Barometric Zone Damper. According to Ron, it will no longer be necessary to install a bypass damper on zoning systems. The BZD damper does not require any adjustments and can save contractors time and money. This unique damper is the perfect solution when space is limited. It can even help improve system efficiency over a system with a standard bypass damper installed.

“I created these dampers to provide contractors an easy-to-use solution for zoning applications,” replied Ron Jackson. These dampers are available in round and rectangular. The rectangular BZD dampers are available in end and bottom mount, so they can be installed in the vertical or horizontal positions.
