Circular Silencers

Model VCS

Round Duct Silencers





Silencers shall be fabricated from G90 galvanized steel. The casing shall have the following minimum thickness:

All silencers shall be airtight to a pressure differential of 10 in. Wg.

The acoustical absorption media shall be continuous strand fiberglass packed under compression and protected by a minimum 22 ga (0.85 mm) galvanized perforated steel. The absorptive core baffle shall be centered in the casing and shall have a spun head on the inlet end. The tapered tail of the core baffle shall be optimally designed for pressure drop and insertion loss.

Kinetics standard circular silencers are available in 10 different types and three standard lengths for a total choice of 30 different designs to cover most customer needs. Many non-standard variations are also available. Contact the factory for more information.

Insertion Loss

Insertion loss data is provided for standard silencer construction. If special designs are required, such as plastic film or glass fiber cloth covering for the acoustic media, consult your local Kinetics representative or refer to our web-based silencer selection program.

Pressure Drop

The pressure drop across the silencer increases with the length of the silencer yeilding higher insertion loss. For silencers with a sound absorbing bullet, higher insertion losses are achieved by reducing the open area of silencer face area. This constricts the flow and increases the pressure drop.

Pressure drop data is presented for a silencer inserted in a duct when neither end is near a bend, elbow or transition.
