- Functions required by our OEM customers
Steam or gas vent silencers
Located downstream of relief valves and blow down tanks, our steam or gas vent silencers include multi-stage expansion devices associated with absorptive parts to meet the most stringent noise requirements, even in high frequencies. All type of gas and operating conditions can be handled. Whenever applicable, our silencers comply with PED 97/23. They are ideal for safety and control valves, HRSG, CFB boilers, ultra-critical boilers, LNG trains, petrochemical plants, or gas pipelines.
Used in compressed gas networks, IAC BS’ standard range of silencers provide from 15dBA to 40dBA attenuation and can be used in new or existing installations. Featuring absorptive or reactive and wave displacement principles, IAC BS inline silencers can be provided with fibre-free insulating material or various steel grade to match different gas applications and can be used with compressors, vacuum pumps, or reciprocating equipment.
Flue gas silencers
Specifically designed for hot or cold flue gas, IAC BS flue gas are made of highly resistant panels that can be fitted in outlet ducts or stacks, ensuring perfect integration within exhaust systems lines. IAC BS design ensures minimum pressure drops with highly efficient,low frequencies noise control. They can be used for gas turbines exhaust, HRSG, boilers or stacks.
Providing 15dBA to 50dBA attenuation, IAC BS’ range of standard engine silencers can be easily fitted to match any specific customer requirements. Optional equipment includes spark-arrestors and catalysts. For CHP projects, IAC BS can take in charge the complete exhaust system line and integration. Most usual applications include: engines packaging, gensets, standby and backup power plants, CHP projects and captive powers.
IAC BS ventilation silencers are made of modular panels specially designed for optimum pressure drops and noise containment when dealing with air intake or discharge. Depending on the applications, they can be provided as complete casing for connection to air inlet ducts or walls or supplied as panels for specific installations. Optional equipment includes: anti-icing or filtration equipment. Most usual applications include: gas turbine inlets, forced draft silencing, air conditioning, enclosures ventilation and cooling towers.
As the world leader in building acoustics, IAC BS has developed specific products for power enclosures. Made of modular panels, they can withstand the most extreme weather or site conditions, while providing excellent acoustic attenuation. IAC BS enclosures can be fitted on any type of noisy equipment, whatever the dimensions, and be equipped with optional acoustic doors, windows or ventilation silencers. Most usual applications include: gas turbines enclosures, HRSG external casing, genset enclosures, control rooms and all types of machines.
When it is not possible to treat noise problems at the source, or for existing installations, IAC BS proposes the FS and FD modular sound screens and barriers. Provided with their own supporting structures, fixed or movable, IAC BS sound barriers have demonstrated their acoustic performance on the most stringent applications, such as airport run ups or railway / road sides. Usual applications include: power plant fencing and transformer enclosures.
Acoustic studies and R&D
IAC BS is your global partner for noise control solutions. For EPC contractors who have to deal with acoustic determination of the equipments to be supplied, IAC BS provides studies on projects or existing installations and helps you build your RFQs. Make sure that your expensive power project will comply with local regulations, thanks to our integrated R&D department and test your product in our modern acoustic facilities.
