damper rod/pin/pivot/bolt


Explanation:
I just checked Termium, and it very much looks like this is a damper rod. Here's what it has for "damper":

English:Closing Devices and Nozzles (Mechanical)
HVAC Distribution Systems
damper s CORRECT
DEF - A device capable of regulating the amount of air flowing in a duct. s
DEF - a valve or plate regulating the flow of air or other fluid. s
CONT - The damper is usually a sheet metal disc that can be turned inside the round supply duct to adjust the flow of air.... s
1990-12-30

I looked at the assorted offerings Termium had for "axe" and, amongst others, found "rod," although not related to the field in question; however, "damper rod" is what I get the most Google hits for by far: 388. LDGT and Termium have a number of other renderings of "axe"; see farther on.

Termium does have "clapper/dry pipe valve" but in a very limited context:

English:Fixed Rescue Facilities (Fire)
air and water clapper s
differential dry-pipe valve s
1993-03-23

French:Fixed Rescue Facilities (Fire)
clapet à air s MASC
clapet air et eau s MASC
soupape à air s FEM
soupape différentielle s FEM
vanne différentielle s FEM
DEF - dans une installation d'extinction automatique à eau sous air, clapet qui ne laisse pénétrer l'eau dans le réseau de tuyauteries qu'au moment de l'ouverture d'une tête. s

I get 34 hits on Google for +"damper rod"+heating: http://www.google.com/search?q="damper rod" heating&hl=en&lr...
Here are a few examples. See if they fit your context:

Termium limits the meaning of "pin" to a different area:

English:Traction (Rail)
Mechanical Components
pin s
OBS - general meaning s
1985-09-01

And this is what the GDT has:

pin (ab)
A stud articulating within a bushing of an inside link and secured at its end by the pin-link plates.

I did get 17 hits for "damper pin" but none of them relating to either heating or plumbing; rather, they have to do with assorted engines. See:
http://www.google.com/search?q="damper pin"&hl=en&lr=&safe=o...

I get only 8 hits for "damper axis", none relating to heating or plumbing. See:
http://www.google.com/search?q="damper axis"&hl=en&lr=&safe=...

I do find "damper bolt" related to heating, although LGDT only gives "bolt" for the automotive industry:
http://www.google.com/search?q="damper bolt" heating&hl=en&l...

LGDT also proposes "pivot" and I do find this term paired with "damper" and "heating/plumbing" on Google. See:
http://www.google.com/search?q="damper pivot" heating&hl=en&...
http://www.google.com/search?q="damper pivot" plumbing&hl=en...

vent flap axis


Explanation:
I'm afraid that without greater context I cannot be sure whether "axe" is refering to the centreline or to a 'stick' like thing, axis/axle/rod/pin, or whatever.

However, "clapet d'air" for me could be a valve or why not quite simply a "vent flap", as suggested by the GDT.
