Many industrial organizations use the power of compressed air in pneumatic equipment, including blast cleaners, drills, forging pressures, and paint sprayers. However, a drawback of pneumatic equipment is its loud operating noise. To reduce the ambient noise from your pneumatic equipment to safe, workable levels, it is vital they are fitted with effective silencers. Porvair Sciences has developed new Vyon® porous plastic silencers to fit the exhaust port of pneumatic equipment and ensure the noise from air escaping to the atmosphere is reduced to a safe decibel level. The company claims the Vyon silencers can reduce the noise from a single unsilenced exhaust port from about 90 decibels to between 60 and 70 decibels.
