At Ventx, we specialise in silencer design for a broad range of industries. Over our many years of existence, we have acquired quite a few clients.
When looking at silencer solutions, the problem may be that while the noise attenuation measures deal with the noise produced by exhaust and venting devices, power generation or other processes at an intermediate stage still create noise pollution.
Your team and any visitors will be exposed to the noise. This creates a bigger issue when working in such an environment for long periods of time or on a regular basis.
By implementing inline silencers, you are dealing with noise created by gas flow within ducting or other conduits. The solution ensures that when a flow of gas passes through a chamber or junction (or from one diameter or pipe to another), it balances within the system, removing the noise at the source. Without the solution, the flow would produce unwanted noise.
Our inline silencers feature the same design elements as vent silencers. The main concern is to reduce the vibration, which would decrease the valve noise. For this purpose, there are two options when considering inline applications, which are control valve silencers and direct inline silencers.
Control valve silencers offer a drop in pressure or backpressure, combining a diffuser design with an absorptive section in conjunction with a control valve. Direct inline silencers create as little pressure loss as possible and use only the absorptive section.
Both types can be used in pressurised systems for an appropriate pressure design code. We always provide silencer inlets designed and manufactured with reference to design code. We also ensure the required backpressure and select the correct valve.
At Ventx, we custom-build your inline silencer system to produce the optimal performance for your environment. We start with an acoustic analysis, where we record the noise levels and their frequencies. If it is not an already existing facility, we can also use your specifications and model the acoustic properties of the proposed installation through our computer software.
Once the design of your inline silencer is completed, we manufacture it from long-strand fibreglass acoustic packing as the absorption material. This forms the core of the product, which is then supplied in a custom-fabricated inline silencer housing or used to be inserted into your already existing pipework.
