Solutions for Sound, Vibration & Performance Problems

In today's operating environment, maximizing air-cooled heat exchanger performance while minimizing failures and maintenance needs is extremely important. Obtaining and maintaining specific noise levels is increasingly critical.

Since 1970, CE-Air International has provided technical support for countless customers. Always an industry leader, in 1978 Chittom International was the first fan manufacturer to publish GUARANTEED sound power levels. Today's increasing demand for field testing and analysis of sound/noise, air side performance and vibration problems require ever growing levels of technical expertise. To meet this need, Chittom International engineers have undergone extensive training and specialized formal education in these areas and CE-Air International can now offers a wide range of technical support to assist in the resolution of your specific problems.
