The new Sound Shield technology from Gast Manufacturing is the only technology of its kind. It significantly reduces sound levels up to a 25% dB(A) drop and a 40% Sone decrease in perceived loudness at open flow compared to a standard Gast vacuum pump or air compressor without affecting performance. Installation is simple whether on the manufacturing line or as a retrofit at your product location. Sound Shield is a convenient, integrated, one-source solution — eliminating the time, cost and complexity of other less-effective sound dampening products such as foam insulation, mufflers, covers or cabinets. It’s a sound investment for your business — returning the benefits of a quieter, more pleasant working environment that increases user comfort and productivity.
GAST SSV-01 fits all Gast rocking piston 86R and 87R models, both single and twin cylinders, used for vacuum applications. See SSP kits for pressure applications.
The AS321 Silencer(s) should be replaced at 2000 hours or 2 years, whichever comes first, to prevent air restrictions to keep your compressor or pump running at peak performance. Silencer SKU:AS321.
It is recommended that if the upgrade is being performed on a pump with more than 1000 hours or 1 year of use that a Gast preventative maintenance kit is also used.
Kit includes: Installation guide, (1) attenuation chamber, (1) spacer plate with O-ring, elbow and silencer, (4) 10-32 screws, (1) unattached elbow, (1) AS321 silencer, and (4) port plugs.
