Silent Lab Acoustic Enclosures
“For effective noise reduction of Rotary Pumps and Water Chillers”

Introduction
Achieving optimum performance sometimes requires reducing the acoustic interferences of rotary pumps and water chillers in your lab environment. Rave Scientific offers the Silent Lab acoustic enclosures, which have been especially developed to reduce the noise level generated by vacuum pumps and water chillers, used with SEMs, TEMs, FIB-SEM, sample preparation and analytical systems. If there is no opportunity to move the vacuum pumps and/or the water chiller to a separate room, the noise level generated by the pumps and/or the water chiller can be irritating and distracting. Using a Silent Lab acoustic enclosure will significantly reduce the noise level to acceptable levels and allows operators to concentrate on the task at hand. The Silent Lab acoustic enclosures are sophisticated and safe soundproofing boxes, which are placed over the noisy vacuum pump or water chiller. They facilitate power and vacuum pumping lines, provide cooling and will let the vacuum pump or water chiller operate at full specifications.

The Silent Lab 4, 6 and 7 were originally designed for SEMs, TEMs and FIB-SEM systems, but equally useful for other systems with noisy rotary vacuum pumps. The Silent Lab 3 has been specifically designed for smaller pumps used with SEM sputter coaters, EM carbon coaters and vacuum ovens. The Silent Lab 5 is intended for analytical systems with larger noisy rotary vacuum pumps.

Features of the premium Silent Lab noise reduction boxes are as follows:

  • Noise reduction approx. 15dB to 12dB depending on type.
  • Robust all metal construction with high performance acoustic foam
  • Acoustic foam with optimized pattern to reduce low frequency noise
  • IEC mains connectors with fuse for easy installation
  • Available as 230V or 115V systems
  • Fans are only switched on when the rotary pump is running
  • Sophisticated air flow system with low noise high capacity fans
  • Integrated digital thermometer
  • Top lid for easy service access
  • Powder-coated oil and water resistant surface in light blue RAL5005
  • Flammability rating to DIN 75200 / FMVSS 302
  • Internal KF25 installation kit included

Due to the footprint of the Silent Lab box, vacuum lines might need an extension

Due to the footprint of the Silent Lab box, vacuum lines might need an extension between 1-2m.

*When requesting a quotation, please specify the model and make of SEM, TEM, FIB-SEM, sample preparation or other analytical system and model and make of vacuum pump.

*Delivery and installation are optionally available at additional costs.
