Vent Silencer

Vent Silencer


Vent Silencer @ Blow Off Silencer

ISTIQ VENT SILENCER reduce the noise produced by the expansion of gas or steam from elevated pressures to atmospheric pressure. These absorptive silencers are used to suppress noise generated by high velocity gas streams such as steam vents, safety relief valve outlets, system blow downs and purge outlets. Each vent silencer is designed to attenuate the noise level to the required sound pressure level criteria at a given distance from the silencer.
Model IVS - Acoustic Diffuser & Expansion Attenuation - 30 dB


VENT SILENCER effectively silence high-velocity air, steam, and gas vents and blowdowns to atmosphere where
sonic or critical conditions exist in the valve or pipes. Typical applications include:
  • steam boiler relief valves
  • superheater header relief valves
  • boiler startup and purge
  • high-pressure air vents
  • natural gas blowdowns
  • switch valves
  • compressor blowoffs
  • autoclaves
  • steam ejectors
  • pressure valve
  • Steam turbine silencer


Typical VENT SILENCER are welded heavy-duty units. The inlet nozzle and diffuser are constructed of steel and are welded. The diffuser provides controlled pressure expansion to atmosphere and uniform flow distribution through the acoustic section of the silencer. The lined inlet plenum (expansion chamber) of the silencer is designed with a double shell separated by a layer of acoustic insulation and sound-deadening material. The inner shell is solid to prevent shell radiated noise and migration of the acoustic fill. The transmission loss across the plenum and bottom head is comparable to the silencer attenuation.

Selection Guidelines

Use the following design information from the valve data sheet for system analysis and silencer selection:
  1. Type of gas
  2. Molecular weight or specific gravity
  3. Ratio of specific heats
  4. Flow rate (lb/hr, ACFM or SCFM)
  5. Pressure and temperature upstream of valve and silencer
  6. Maximum allowable pressure drop (PSI) for valve and silencer
  7. Manufacturer’s name, and valve type and size
  8. Unsilenced noise levels from valve (if available)
  9. Silenced noise level (required at desired distance from source)
  10. Silencer inlet size and pressure rating
  11. Inlet orientation, axial or side
  12. Silencer orientation, vertical or horizontal
  13. Piping arrangement, including schematic if available
  14. Other required options
