Polyline’s Fan Silencers are designed for the Underground Mining environment to provide ready inbuilt noise absorption.
High tech sound foam and sound barrier is critical to the fabrication process to lower noise volume.
An overall width of < 50mm is maintained, unlike conventional Rock Wall types (overall > 120mm). This means that the silencer outside diameter does not exceed the fan flange.
Silencers can be bolted end to end when mounting a fan in a restricted area such as a vent access wall. They are available in high visibility yellow.
Advantages of Polyline's Fan Silencers
Excellent in damp and salty environments, a superior to steel silencers
By using ‘closed cell’ foam and protective coating, we are able to produce a silencer which is impervious to moisture and dust, resulting in no maintenance.
This product can take severe impact and return to its original shape
Enables installation & removal an easier task to perform, especially in difficult locations
The overall diameter of the fan assembly is not increased by the silencer, preventing catch points in environments such as Underground Mining

|Fan Silencer Test Results|
|Fan type tested: Twin 45 kW Howden Silencer length: 1.8m each Overall fan length: 4.9m (incl. intake/exhaust cones) Silencer weight: Approx. 105kg (including bell and cone end fittings) Average db(a) rating of fan unsilenced: 105.2db(a) at 1 metre (including line of sight at intake and exhaust) Average db(a) rating silenced at 1 metre: 88.9 db(a) average (at 1 metre the reflective influences were negligible) Average at 3 metres: There was a significant reduction at 3 metres in the high 70 db(a). The amount reduced would be even greater in a free field condition whereas the actual test conditions included significant reflective surfaces (e.g. factory wall and plant machinery). Noise level average reduction at 1 metre: 16.3 db(a) average decrease at 1 metre (inclusive of line of sight at intake and exhaust) All tests were undertaken by Trevor Holland (Dip Mech Eng, Grad A.A.F.) from Industrial Noise Control Pty Ltd and duplicated using the same location and conditions.|
