Pneumatic mufflers, breathers, or silencers are used to reduce noise in pneumatic tools and systems, cylinders, and valves
. Mufflers reduce the noise from exhausts and can also be referred to as exhaust mufflers or exhaust vents. They are a requirement by the law to protect workers from exposure to sounds above 90dBA or more than eight hours shifts of a weekly 40 hours working in such an environment. Pneumatic mufflers can be classified according to the material of construction into plastic pneumatic, stainless steel wire pneumatic, aluminum pneumatic, stainless steel powder pneumatic, and bronze pneumatic mufflers. When classified according to function, there are five types of pneumatic mufflers, high-pressure pneumatic, common pneumatic, throttle pneumatic, and compressor pneumatic mufflers. Pneumatic mufflers have a filter that is prone to wear and tear after prolonged usage and eventually causes clogging inside the valves, which leads to operational disruptions. There are retrofit kits
that have been designed to counteract this problem through built-in warning indicators and dynamic filters.Purchase from the finest selection of pneumatic mufflers available in the market at MRO Supply. We stock a wide assortment of pneumatic mufflers to suit any application.
