All About Our Silencers

We often hear a lot about industry’s impact on the environment in reference to lowering our carbon footprint. What is not always given as much attention is the issue of noise pollution. For this problem, at Ventx we have the perfect solution with our industrial silencer design. Particularly considering noise levels in the petro-chemical and service industries, the best way to deal with this issue is through a custom design for individual applications.

Innovative Technology

By using advanced computer software, we are able to craft predictive acoustic models within the design phase, so that silencers can be designed prior to the building of the infrastructure. On the other hand, we can also work with existing machinery in order to plan the necessary measures for noise reduction. Typically, we are able to produce gas ejector silencers, direct line silences, vent discharge silencers, and control valve silencers.

Gas Ejector Silencers

A gas ejector silencer uses either hydrocarbon gas or steam, which can be both vented into the atmosphere or in a closed system in order to reduce any noise being produced. This works by attenuating air-born sound waves circulated in a flowing medium. We calculate the ejector noise and flow mixture in order the determine your specific requirements.

Direct Line Silencers

A direct line silencer differs in that it uses absorption rather than pressure variation to reduce any noise created by machinery. Often used with compressors, they can be offered as a complete unit. Alternatively, an acoustic core can be supplied, which would be inserted into existing pipe work.

Vent Discharge and Control Valve Silencers

Finally, vent discharge and control valve silencers are able to lessen the pressure of the gas flow at the same time as absorbing as much sound as possible. This method makes use of both an expansion camber, and an absorptive core. A vent discharge silencer is design to attenuate the noise level to a required sound pressure level, considering the distance from the silencer. They can be used in high pressure vents, steam vents, safety relief valve outlets, system blow downs, purge outlets and so on.

Bespoke Service

At Ventx, we are able to analyse your plans, or assess your current installation by surveying your company. The results will enable us to design and manufacture silencers especially for you, providing a bespoke service that is guaranteed to meet your needs. We use the highest quality materials along with the latest manufacturing techniques in order to craft a silencer that is perfectly suited to your business. Whether you need new silencers for a new development project, or you require silencers for your existing structure, we will be glad to help you.
