Selection of Soundproofing Materials for Multi-stage Centrifugal Fans

Multi-stage centrifugal fans are widely used in various industries due to their ability to generate high air pressure and move large volumes of air. Factors to be considered when we choose sound insulation materials for multistage centrifugal fans.

Sound insulation principle:
Before delving into material selection, it is important to understand the basic principles of sound insulation. Sound can be attenuated through absorption, reflection and transmission. Therefore, an ideal soundproofing material should have properties that minimize sound transmission while maximizing sound absorption.

Noise analysis:
The noise generated by the multi-stage centrifugal fan is analyzed in detail. Determine the main frequency ranges and sound pressure levels that need to be attenuated. This information will guide the selection of suitable soundproofing materials.

Sound-absorbing material:
Choose sound-absorbing materials with a high Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC). Common materials include mineral wool, fiberglass, foam board, and perforated metal. These materials absorb sound energy by converting it into heat or by causing sound waves to lose energy as they travel through the material.

Sound insulation material:
To minimize sound transmission, consider using soundproofing materials. Heavily loaded vinyl, composite barriers, and thick rubber sheets are often used to create effective airborne noise barriers. These materials are dense and heavy, effectively blocking the passage of sound waves.

Damping material:
The vibrations produced by the fans also create noise. Implement vibration dampening measures using materials such as rubber isolators, neoprene pads, or elastic mounts. These materials absorb vibrations and prevent them from being transmitted to surrounding structures, thereby reducing noise levels.

Shell Design:
In addition to soundproofing materials, the design of the fan cover also plays a vital role in reducing noise. Make sure the enclosure is properly sealed to prevent sound leakage. Construct enclosure walls using materials with good acoustic properties, such as mass-loaded panels or double-walled plasterboard with an air gap in between.

Choosing the right soundproofing material for multistage centrifugal fans is critical to creating a quieter working environment and reducing noise pollution. For more information, please contact us.
