Pneumatic Silencers

Effectively reduce pneumatic equipment noise

Pneumatic silencers deliver durability, fast assembly, and cost efficiency

Manufacturers across the world choose POREX® pneumatic silencers to help meet noise mitigation, efficiency, airflow, and pressure drop requirements. Cost-effective pneumatic silencers made with our advanced porous plastic materials deliver long life and superior noise attenuation, along with additional key benefits to help you succeed in today’s competitive global markets:

Compared with a metal acoustical silencer, a Porex pneumatic silencer offers many advantages, with a porous polyethylene (PE) structure that significantly reduces weight, delivers greatly improved corrosion resistance and has the ability to filter particles and aerosols.
