Industrial Noise Control
Worker comfort and environmental compliance is of highest importance for industrial facilities and one of the many factors to be considered is the acoustics environment.
Vipac can assist in the preparation of new plant design guidelines and specifications for noise control, including forecasting the effectiveness and cost of noise control treatments as well as preparation of Environmental Impact Statements for Statutory Bodies and Councils. Further services consist of; occupational noise consulting, including measurement and management of occupational noise exposure and whole body and hand-arm vibration.
Industrial noise surveys to identify problem areas and propose appropriate noise control solutions are often conducted. These range from simple remedial design modifications to complete package designs for projects including machine enclosures, silencers or acoustic treatments.
Sound intensity measurement and mapping permits the identification of component sound power levels and enables source ranking. This allows the implementation of cost effective noise controls such as; modification of process parameters at source, blowdown and steam silencer design, pneumatic silencing, enclosure panel optimisation and fan design.
