Cy, Arzel’s Test Cycle Damper celebrates a BIG milestone

As we celebrate our test damper Cy’s 20,000,000th cycle, we can’t help but reflect on nearly 40 years in the Zoning manufacturing industry, and how grateful we are for the continued support and collaboration within the HVAC industry as a whole.

One of the most frequently asked questions we get is, why pneumatic?

The results speak for themselves.

It doesn’t seem so long ago when Cy hit 10 Million cycles in 2012, representing over 1000 years of real-life zoning operation (Avg. 10,000 cycles per year). Just this past week, Cy surpassed 20 Million cycles, resembling over 2000 years of operation!

Pneumatic dampers are not only unsurpassed in reliability, but they also guarantee a noise-free operation as no motors or gears are used for damper articulation. Arzel Zoning Contractors can utilize up to 35 dampers, and mix and match any style to achieve the desired result, with no ductwork modification needed.

Additionally, our unique internal mount damper designs give contractors the ability to add zoning to homes that couldn’t previously be zoned with concrete slab or inaccessible ductwork, to name a few.

With the 20,000,000th cycle under Cy’s belt and no signs of slowing down, we continue to look forward to watching Cy break its cycling records for years to come. Are you still asking, why pneumatic? We hope you ask no more.
