Vent Silencer Design

A vent silencer is a device that helps to reduce unwanted noise. These sounds come from gas or steam flow in a pipeline discharging into the atmosphere. This noise can be generated due to the high velocity flow through the valve. This is as well as turbulence created around any obstacle in the line that suddenly restricts or changes the direction of flow such as valve or an orifice device.  In order for this device to operate well, good vent silencer design is necessary. This is something you can have confidence you will receive when you turn to Ventx.

Reducing noise in all kinds of places

vent silencer designVent silencers find wide applications. Such uses include in high pressure vents, steam vents, safety relief valve outlets, system blow downs, purge and flare outlets. The generated noise is a function of upstream pressure and temperature, type of gas, the valve size and type, plus the effect of down stream piping.

Ventx design each silencer to attenuate the noise level to the required sound pressure level specified by the customer.

Power generation, waste treatment, manufacturing, and many other industries use processes which involve the transfer of gas under pressure.  And whether this gas is air, steam, or some other chemical, it must at some point leave the system. This is so that it can be vented to the atmosphere.  Since the release of pressurised gas is by its nature very noisy, a good vent silencer design is critical. This will reduce the noise levels produced by the process to keep it in line with relevant legislation.  If an industrial silencer has a poor design, it may fail to provide sufficient attenuation. This results in inadequate sound damping. Or, it may modify the sound inefficiently. This will result in unnecessary expenditure and poor performance of the equipment.

Expert vent silencer design from Ventx

Ventx are specialists in industrial silencer design.  In fact, we are one of the leading silencer design companies in the UK. A glance at our client list will show precisely this.  Some system designers misunderstand industrial silencers. They believe them to be little more than metal pipes filled with industrial waste.  The fact is, silencer design is a highly scientific process. We apply cutting edge scientific methods to design our products.

The Ventx design procedure begins with the customer.  Your process data can provide us with crucial information. This plays a huge role when designing a vent silencer to match your needs perfectly.  In the absence of such data, we can survey your facilities. Our team will take measurements to build up an accurate picture of the by-products which result.  We then use advance computer software to model the acoustic properties of the system as it stands. From these, we can arrive at an appropriate exhaust silencer design.

Is your manufacturing or treatment process still at the design stage?  Or maybe you are upgrading?  Our specialists can anticipate your needs. So, get in touch with our design team today. We would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have. We can also go into more detail for our services.
