Dealing with aerodynamic noise

Noisy environments can be very hard to work in. There are cases where they can even cause problems that are irreversible, such as hearing damage. However, with the introduction of our solutions, you can minimise the noise and risks. We supply steam vent silencers, as well as many other designs. They are efficient and can be tailor-made for you facility.

An interesting way to improve plants

Aerodynamic noise reduction in control loops and pipelines has become a vital consideration. This is the case for a wide array of industries. It directly influences a plant’s productivity and efficiency. However, the right solution can maximise both.

Understanding the correct ways of managing the sound can also aid you in generating a safe work setting. You can protect your plant, enable secure process management, and prolong maintenance intervals. In addition, you will be able to meet the legal requirements for noise.

Modern processing plants do everything in their power to augment productivity and efficiency. Often, that consists of working at high temperatures, flow rates, and pressures. This results in higher pressure differentials over important control valves. It can result in lots of noise.

The aerodynamic noise has always been a concern. However, it is an even bigger one in modern high-throughput processing plants. It is both annoying and presents a health threat. Plus, it is could be subject to multiple regulations. They can restrict total allowable noise levels to under 85 decibels (dBa).

Path treatment

One thing you can do to tackle the problem is look at path treatment. You can perform it with the help of certain tools, including noise absorbing panels, enclosures, and more.

It is especially wise to look at path treatment when the vibration levels aren’t high enough to ruin the control loop’s performance. You should also use it if source treatment won’t suffice by itself to bring noise down.

A silencer is one of the best tools you can use here. You can install them on outlets for steam or gas leading to the atmosphere to lower the noise. Reactive silencers generate frequency interactions to lower sound. As for dissipative models, they have sound-absorbing substances to reduce it. Usually you would use a combination of both in atmospheric vent silencers.

Ask us about steam vent silencers

At Ventx, we supply solutions to help clients control the noise that comes from multiple areas in a facility. This includes fans, ductwork, and generators. It can also be vents and safety valves. With our acoustic modelling software, we can design something suitable for you.

So, if you desire our steam vent silencers or any other models, please give us a call. We would love to help improve conditions for your workforce.
