Stacks & Silencers for ID Fans & Dust Collectors

Silentec designed and manufactured over 18 stack-silencers for the Sorel-Tracy plant of QIT between 2003 and 2008, as part of the environmental noise reduction program. Most were downstream baghouse dust collectors, such as this 60' tall & low pressure loss silencer insert.

Other stack-silencers were supplied inside a stack or a duct, as well as a permanently mounted noise monitor.

Silentec also performs periodic maintenance and cleaning where needed.

Air Handling - Mine Ventilation

This asbestos mine ventilation and heater house was built with the neighbors in mind!

TLT-Babcock Inc. needed to supply and install 2 fans pushing 700,000 cubic feet per minute into a deep mine shaft owned by J.M Asbestos Inc., in Asbestos, QC. The regulator would not tolerate an increase to the ambient noise outside homes located 1,500 feet from the projected location of the fans. Silentec performed day-night environmental noise measurements, developed noise abatement requirements and presented the initial environmental report for approval by the regulators. Following approval, Silentec designed, manufactured and built a soundproofed metal siding building, including silencers, louvers, acoustic shrouds, windows, doors and hatches. The noise from the fans, motors, burners, pumps and other equipment is contained by this quiet envelope. Completed in 2001.

Air Handling Noise Control at Armstrong Inc. & Eagle-Allemand Inc.

Environmental and work place noise in these plants had increased mainly from higher production and the addition of air handling systems for pollution control.

Silentec supported its customers throughout the process, from investigating the problems to putting in place permanent solutions. Environmental noise surveys and diagnostic testing of noise sources were performed and correlated with complaints from nearby residents. Respectful dialogue and information sessions with the citizens' committee and local government enabled the ranking of noise sources by priority. Silentec identified solutions and budgets. Plant managers were able to commit to a multi-year noise abatement program. Silentec assisted throughout the implementation - including design-manufacturing-installation of silencers, enclosures, pipe lagging and other noise and vibration controls. The pictures show fan and other silencers.
