Typical Fan Connections
Bolted To Fan:
Lower fan-silencer energy loss
Break-out noise minimized with flexible connector located at silencer discharge
More mass for improved vibration isolation efficiency
Blind bolting is standard (add-on for raised flange)
Direct Duct Connection:
Potential noise break-out problem when flexible connector is attached to fan discharge
Up to 50% more energy loss, unless costly center-body extension is specified to match fan motor or impeller hub circumference
Slight reduction in silencer cost
Increased Acoustic Performance Options
The ratings listed are based on a standard silencer length equivalent to one fan diameter.
Improved attenuation can be obtained from Models CS-1.5, 2.0, 3.0 or intermediate lengths, within system space limitations and/or acoustic requirements.
(Model CSI)(Model CSD)
A … Fan Diameter
AA … Duct or plenum connection diameter
B … Overall silencer casing diameter
C … Acoustic length (silencer overall length C + F)
CB … Center-body diameter
F … Flange or slip allowance (2" unless otherwise specified)

All sizes employ 3lb density fiberglass acoustic media, erosion protected by FG cloth.
Heavier gauges than standard, special materials or paint finishes are available on request.
If silencer is to be duct connected, length of center-body extension to minimize energy losses must be specified. (e.g. for a 10" increase in CB length, silencer designation becomes 54CS( )-1-CB26-10)
