Light Industrial Silencers

VAW Systems Light Industrial Rectangular and Elbow Silencers are specially designed to be flange mounted directly to a ducted air system or a general purpose fan.

  • Lightweight Sheet Metal Construction
  • Flanged for simple installation

There are a number of construction options and accessories available that may be selected for your application.  For special applications, silencers may be assembled in a modular fashion and/or sized to meet shipping and material handling requirements.  Automated product selection is available through VAW Systems’ FANSIL® and COMSIL® software packages.

What Are Light Industrial Silencers, and How Do They Differ From Other Types?

Light industrial silencers are built for lighter-duty fans; they’re especially well suited to fans with lower static pressure and lighter casing construction. For these applications, light industrial silencers offer an extremely cost-effective option that offers the noise reduction levels of fully-welded industrial silencers at a fraction of the cost.

How Do Light Industrial Silencers Work?

Light industrial silencers absorb and reflect noise to scatter, break up, and trap sound waves. Our industrial silencers can also be equipped with hoods to redirect sound away from noise-sensitive areas. A light industrial silencer can offer the same noise mitigation for a lighter-duty fan as a fully-welded industrial silencer; it can be used for both inlet and discharge fan installations. 

How Can Light Industrial Silencers Be Installed, and Do They Require Special Mounting Equipment?

The method used for installation will depend on both the silencer type and the fan system on which they are being installed. Typically, the silencer will be supported by the fan flange—in other cases, support brackets may be installed to support the silencer. 

Can Light Industrial Silencers Be Customized for Special Applications?

Our silencers can be custom-built for all kinds of applications; they can be custom-built to fit almost any size or shape. Different materials can be utilized to ensure that the silencer provides enough noise attenuation in a variety of environments and to ensure that the silencer can resist corrosion and other environmental factors.
