Angular interior stack as industrial silencer

Exhaust air and exhaust gases are closely linked to the height prescribed by the law for the chimney. The existing chimney length is predestined as a silencer in angular stack form. This new damping system makes use of the interior of the chimney (or the exhaust gas flue) not in a round shape, but – using flat panels able to vibrate – in an angled formation.
The acoustic planning and design is computerized with corresponding calculation programs. All designs are checked in an approval testing at the factory.

The vibrating panels are insensitive to dirt and they convert the sound energy into vibration energy. As an absorber there is special plastic or mineral wool inserted between the load-bearing outer shell and the angular stack inside the steel chimney. In this way, exhaust gas and exhaust air systems can be operated without using additional silencers.


This multi-functionality has the following advantages:

  • low frequency highly efficient – wide-ranging emission protection
  • low flow loss – continuously saving energy
  • not sensitive to dirt – low maintenance costs
  • integral design – substantial saving of space
  • high level of prefabrication – installed speedily
  • A broadband damping effect through a combination of different resonator chambers
