Silencer Selection Program

Kinetics Noise Control, Inc. can save you time and money by working with you to design economically quiet duct systems. We do this by offering you, at no cost, access to our one-of-a-kind on-line silencer database, selection and duct analysis program. The program incorporates the most up-to-date design analysis algorithms recognized by ASHRAE. It dramatically reduces your engineering time, while designing quiet duct systems.

The program provides you with a complete eight-octave band acoustical analysis. It takes into account natural attenuation of duct and fittings, sound power splits, end reflection, insertion loss of insulated duct and fittings and the critical space/room attenuation. It allows entry of any manufacturer’s sound power level data as well as any manufacture’s equipment sound level used in the system. It is a true, model-all program. The program produces a report that displays whether or not your design meets your required noise level within the critical space. If the sound levels are not met, the program will automatically chooses a duct silencer for you based on your allowable height, width, and length and pressure loss. A final analysis report is produced for you to place in your project file for future reference.

The program has been developed with you in mind.
