Adding silencers to systems the right way

Industrial noise has caused problems for workers for a long time. Exposure to it for too long can cause permanent damage. Even short term exposure is harmful if noise levels are high enough. To keep them down, you need to use the right utensils. This could be an inline silencer or a different model. Ours is a company that designs and provides these special utensils. If you need one, you can rely on us to deliver it.

One long standing goal of noise control experts has been to place “green” and “noise control” in the same sentence. Over the years, there have been attempts to supply silencers with green ratings that haven’t been successful. We’re going to look at how people apply silencers and how it relates to energy consumption.

The goal

When adding a silencer to a system, the intent is to generate an appropriate and productive acoustic setting for everyone. This is in accordance with the use of the area. Reaching this goal tends to be at odds with separate goals. Examples include minimising the size of your air handling system and reducing the amount of ductwork.

The later in the design process you take the acoustics into consideration, the more challenging things become. There are so many ways to use duct attenuators and silencers. As a result, the goal here is to maximise acoustic attenuation and lower pressure drop.

Acoustic performance and pressure drops

As acoustic performance goes up, the product pressure drops. This balancing act makes choosing silencers a science. It highlights the how crucial it is to use intuitive silencer design software to create an inline silencer or another style. Also, you will need to think about how the design will influence the performance. Do so alongside dictating the performance demands of the silencer.

One rule of thumb is that silencers need installing with no less than 3-5 duct diameters worth of straight duct. This is both after and before the unit. Such a rule ensures the on-site installation will have similar conditions to those under which you tested the unit.

When selecting the installed position for a silencer in ductwork, take this suggestion into consideration. It is not likely that the attenuation will decrease because of less than ideal conditions. But, the pressure drop can be impacted considerably. The result will be greater energy consumption on the system.

The right application of silencers is necessary to achieving a project’s net energy requirements. Credible test data helps too. A silencer that you have selected and positioned properly will utilise less energy. This is in comparison to one you install without consideration. You will be able to maintain the necessary energy consumption signature for your machinery. What’s more, you won’t need to make any costly changes during commissioning.

Speak to us and we can design an inline silencer for you

At Ventx, we supply all kinds of silencers that differ in terms of attenuation level and design. This allows each one to do the job for which it was intended efficiently. We use our expertise and the best software to design bespoke solutions for our clients.

Whether you need an inline silencer or something else, you can depend on us. So, please get in touch if there is anything you need.
