The handling and storage of silencers

One of the most effective strategies for managing noise is to use silencers. Our company has specialised in designing them for several years. We strive to meet all of our clients’ requirements by creating the finest models. This includes the useful blow off silencer. By working with us to design the right equipment, you can improve performance as well as efficiency.

Industrial silencers should be able to do their duty continuously within their environment. They should offer free, predicable performance. To ensure this happens, we ensure a professional examines every model we make to check the quality. Then all it takes is the correct installation and suitable maintenance to ensure you will have many great years of service.


One area where you need to take a great deal of care is with how you handle the silencer. You should only lift it using the mounting supports or lifting eyes. Only personnel with sufficient training should make the lifting decisions.

Putting silencers into storage

Some people will only use their silencer periodically. When it is not in use, storing it correctly is important. This is especially true if you are storing it for a long period of time. When you are doing that, you need to ensure it has the right protection. Most notably, you have to keep it safe from moisture and dirt.

If you use a tarp to cover your silencer, you can keep it dry and clean. Avoid using black plastic tarps though. This will only serve to promote condensation. It is also preferable to keep the silencers indoors when you store them. They will remain safe from the elements this way.

For silencers installed in exterior locations, you need to safeguard them against moisture. This includes snow and rain. Neither should be able to enter the silencer. Moisture is dangerous since it results in long term damage and negatively influences the silencer’s performance. You can try using rain hoods. Consider screens too to prevent debris from getting in the air stream.
