ASC In-Line Mufflers are used to quiet fan noise,
or any noise contained within a pipe or ventillation system. Each
situation is different, yet the principle used to quiet the noise
is always the same. Acoustic grade fiberglass is used to absorb
noise and convert it into heat energy. The muffler on your car
or truck also uses fiberglass to absorb almost all of the noise
generated by your engine.
When ASC builds an In-Line Muffler, it's always
a custom design based on your application and needs. Recording
studios use In-Line Mufflers to quiet the rushing air sound generated
by their HVAC system. Factories may wish to quiet their dust control
systems or other waste flow systems. ASC Mufflers are
an excellent part of any OSHA compliance program.

All fiberglass is fully encapsulated.
The design for each
Muffler is based on the physics and science of acoustics, removing
all guess-work from the equation. Then the ASC factory in Eugene,
Oregon goes to work building the order to the highest specifications.
All fiberglass is fully encapsulated by a Typar covering to prevent
glass fibers from getting into the air. Some designs may be baffled,
some may be flow through as shown to the left.
In each case, care is given to the exact customer
needs for the application. Some Mufflers are used in harsh environments
such as high heat, solid waste conduits, or extreme air pressure
situations. ASC custom builds to spec every time.
Pictured to the right is an ASC Muffler
installed and in use at a Momar Industries, specializing
in paperboard food packaging products. A roll of printed paperboard
feeds an in-line die cutting machine that stamps out the product.
The waste material is sucked into a waste duct, which has the ASC
Muffler system installed. Owner Greg Marsella got tired of the extreme
noise and called ASC. We set him up with a pair of Mufflers, and
now he's thrilled with the new-found quiet. He's able to talk on
the phone while on the production floor and no longer has to wear
