EXAIR’s new Reclassifying mufflers can be installed directly into the exhaust port of cylinders, valves and other air powered equipment to reduce work area noise and harmful oil mist. They are easy to retrofit to new and existing installations.
Reclassifying mufflers provide a noise reduction up to 35 dBA to help companies meet the EU noise directive (86/188/EEC) and OSHA standard 29 CFR – 1910.95 requiring safe noise levels below 90 dBA.
The patented wrap design of the removable element eliminates oil mist contamination of workers’ breathing air, keeping exposure well below the 4.32 PPM (particles per million) required by OSHA standard 29 CFR 1910.10. Harmful open dead end pressures are eliminated.
Each reclassifying muffler has a high airflow capacity to minimise back pressure restriction so not to interfere with the operation of the cylinder, valve or other air powered device.
A reservoir for oil to accumulate at the bottom can be drained by attaching a ¼” tube. They are available in popular sizes from 1/8” to 1” NPT.
These reclassifying mufflers are available from Compressed Air Australia.
