The environmental pollution is increased due to the emission from the automobile vehicles and it is uncontrollable due to the increase in the number of vehicles on the road. So, our aim is to reduce and control the emission and noise from the engine using aqua silencer. The reason why we go for aqua silencer is, in today life the air pollution causes physical ill effects to the human beings and also the environment. The main contribution of the air pollution is automobiles releasing the gases like carbon dioxide, unburned hydrocarbons etc. In order to avoid this type of gases by introducing this aqua silencer. An Aqua Silencer is mainly dealing with control of emission and noise in automobile exhaust. Activated by using charcoal, perforated tube and outer shell it is constructed. An aqua silencer is fitted to the exhaust pipe of the engine. The activated charcoal filters the harmful sulphur and nitrous content produced from the engine. The sound produced under water is less bearable than it produced in the atmosphere. This mainly because of small sprockets in water molecules, which lowers its amplitude thus, lowers the sound level. Because of this property water is used in this silencer and hence its name AQUA SILENCER. It is tested in single cylinder 4- stroke diesel engine the noise and smoke level is considerable less than the conventional silencer. So absorb the gases from the engine and release much less position in the environment. The noise and smoke level is considerable less than the conventional silencer, no need of catalytic converter and easy to install.
