Tmax-SONETHERM

The high-temperature insulation that also takes care of noise emissions

This technology is used in following industries:

Regulations for noise emissions are getting ever stricter – as are regulations on the sound characteristics of engines generally. We have succeeded in integrating both requirements in one product. Tmax-SONETHERM offers all the advantages of an integral insulation and can be used on all high-temperature insulation applications.

1. Increased surface area, less noise

Measures for noise absorption take up space. Up to now, the surface area of hot components in the exhaust line couldn’t be used due to the high temperatures present. However, we’ve now been able to transfer the principle of noise absorption to the actual thermal insulation, thereby using the surface areas of hot gas components such as turbochargers, catalytic converters, etc. The result is a significant reduction in noise emissions, without compromizing the thermal and mechanical properties of the integral insulation.

2. A quieter environment

Whereas traditional insulation absorbs only the air- and structureborne noise emitted by the jacketed component, Tmax-SONETHERM can additionally treat external noise.

3. It's the surface area that does it

The acoustically optimized Tmax-Integral insulation consists of a hightemperature-resistant, shaped fiber element with an excellent noiseabsorbing capability, enclosed by a metallic outer shell. Combined with the water-resistant, high-temperature-insulating fiber material – Tmax-Dry-Tec – water absorption into the fiber is reduced and the insulation efficiency improved.

This is worth listening to

Just by application to a particle filter Tmax-SONETHERM can achieve a reduction in the sound pressure level of up to 3 dB A.*

From noise comes sound

By using various different materials, insulation thicknesses, and perforation configurations, sound pressure levels can be effectively reduced in the frequency range required. This flexibility means we can meet your particular acoustic requirements.

Also available in the form of blankets

Acoustically optimized direct insulation can also be supplied in blanket form. This means that Tmax-SONETHERM is delivered as multiple removable shells with stainless steel foils, inner and outer, with an internal insulating material. As blankets of this type are generally screwed on, installation can be done by the customer on their production line.

All the advantages of integral insulation are retained: excellent thermal properties and application to every geometric shape needed. Noise absorption effectiveness using blankets can even exceed the normal integral insulation in certain frequency ranges.
