In 2015, the Burgess-Manning and Aarding acoustics brands combined to form a new global leader in industrial silencer technologies: Burgess-Aarding.
The Burgess-Aarding brand enjoys a history that dates back to 1928, when the Acoustical division of the Burgess Battery Company was formed to commercially market acoustical ceiling tiles developed by Burgess Laboratories.
Burgess-Aarding brand silencers are best suited to the prevention or reduction of noise from fixed installations, as opposed to mobile (over the road) applications. The source of noise could be from an intake or exhaust of an engine, compressor, blower, vacuum pump, turbine, vent/blowdown, control valve, or relief valve. In many cases, our silencers are used where the process is open to atmosphere at the silencer outlet, but we have numerous designs that are equally well-suited to in-process (closed) systems.
In the gas transmission industry, wherever gas compression facilities are involved, Burgess-Aarding blow-down silencers can be found. Also in gas transmission service, multiple noise-producing sources must be treated with silencing solutions to allow for safe and environmentally friendly operations. The sources of noise include venting of high-pressure gas during emergency shutdowns, the intake and exhaust of engines, compressors, turbines, and turbochargers. In addition, valves and controls that experience large pressure drops can create noise at the valves and radiate it along the pipe. All of these noise sources can be addressed using a proven Burgess-Aarding industrial silencer.
