Q&A: Marine damper innovations and project management

Q&A is a series of articles in which the Sammet experts answer customer questions.


I am interested in Sammet’s new Ultra Large 2-way Marine damper series. How large are these dampers and do they still possess the standard benefits Sammet marine dampers are known for?

Our new, innovative Ultra Large 2-way Marine damper series range in sizes of up to DN3400. Their design is the most robust and reliable in the industry. In addition, and as is the case with our complete range of marine dampers, the new Ultra Large 2-way Marine damper series posses the following standard benefits:

  • Geometrical tightness level of up to 99.9 % 
  • 100% geometrical tightness available with sealing air technology option
  • Low exhaust gas flow resistance with two bladed construction which requires no middle beam 
  • When ship space is limited, our compact design with maintenance-free bearings at the rear of the damper allows for wall mounting 
  • Options include a selection of actuators and equipment such as limit switches, control cabinets and sealing air fans.

Our experts are ready to discuss how our Ultra Large 2-way Marine dampers can be tailored to various technical specifications.  You can discuss your specific requirements by emailing us at or calling +358 14 3391 651.



How is Sammet managing customer projects during the COVID-19 pandemic?

We are committed to providing top quality service, advice and products in all circumstances. During the COVID-19 pandemic we are taking all necessary steps to ensure every new and existing project continues to not meet, but exceed expectations. In this sense, nothing has changed in regards to the final products or services delivered by Sammet.  Our engineering and project management teams remain up and running. Our manufacturing workshops are also operating as usual, with no delays in production. All documentation, material traceability and quality requirements are continuing as they did before the pandemic. 

What has changed, is the way in which we carry out some of our tasks. To maintain constant contact our teams are using various online tools. In countries where it is possible, we are fully prepared for physically distanced face-to-face meetings. Our teams are working directly with customers to ensure all necessary precautions are met as the safety of every individual is a priority for us. Our on-site final assembly testing (FAT) continues in countries where travel to sites is possible. Where travel to sites is not possible, we have developed systems which allow online FAT procedures using the same protocol and attention to detail Sammet is renowned for. Whether online or on-site, the same quality control standards are applied to all our work.

When we undertake any face-to-face and on-site work, all our employees are supplied with masks and sanitiser in accordance with government regulations and advice. We also ensure we meet the specific requirements and protocols of our customers.

If you have any further questions or need to discuss your specific circumstances, you can email us at or calling +358 14 3391 651.
