Which styles of industrial silencers do you need?

Industrial settings can be incredibly noisy. This is largely due to the heavy machinery and systems in use on the sites. Repeat exposure to the loud noises can cause hearing damage and several other health problems in people who work on the site or live near it. To make sites safer, it is important to reduce the noise to a less harmful level. The best way to do this is with industrial silencers.

The key to maximising sound reduction is using the right silencer in the right location. To do this, you need to know about the different types you can choose from. Below we will have a look at four styles.


This is probably the most common type of silencer on the market. The style is very popular because they actually feature materials to absorb the sound energy and turn it into heat. The absorptive material can vary in type and thickness to suit different needs. These silencers are very dynamic because you can install them horizontally or vertically in an array of settings.


The second style of silencer does not seek to absorb the sound waves. Instead they reflect it back towards the source to reduce the amount of noise that escapes. These silencers can be very small because they don’t need to contain any absorptive material. They are also easy to clean, making them a low maintenance option.

Steam vent or gas

These models generally don’t seek to absorb the sound or reflect it back. Instead, they look to diffuse the flow of pressurised gases or steam. The high flow and velocity can result in very loud noises. However, this kind of silencer can reduce the pressure and allow gas or steam to diffuse to the atmosphere at a lower velocity.


As you can probably guess from the name, this type of silencer can combine different elements of various models. Most commonly they are absorptive and reflective to provide the benefits of both.
