Industrial Noise Troubleshooting

Noisy plant and equipment can significantly increase the risk of Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) and be a sign of potential operational problems.

When noise problems arise it is not always easy to determine where the troublesome
noise originates and what practical solutions exist to reduce impacts.

Typical Problem Areas

  • Noise from industrial facility causing community noise impacts
  • Need to determine who and/or what is responsible for noise emissions
  • Noisy equipment creating risk of Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL)
  • Noise breaking into buildings impacting people's comfort
  • Don't know what noise controls are available
  • Limited noise control budget and not sure where best to focus efforts

Our Expertise

When there several noise emitters it is important to focus efforts to achieve maximum benefit. Our industrial experience and "cost/benefit" approach enables us to shape practical solutions which take into account impacts on your processes, maintenance and HSE responsibilities.

To quickly and accurately quantify noise emissions and transmission paths we use a range of measurement techniques, e.g. sound pressure level, sound intensity, Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) analysis and vibration analysis.

Computer modelling allows us to demonstrate the effectiveness of any recommended noise controls before implementation.
