Compressor Noise Control - Acoustic Enclosures
Wiltech Acoustics designs and manufactures acoustic enclosures for industrial compressor noise control. In common with many other mechanical or electro-mechanical products, compressors can represent a major source of unwanted noise in the industrial environment. However, many individuals’ perception of compressors is that they represent a more obtrusive source of noise than other equipment, mainly due to proximity and working accessibility. Typically they average around 85dBA which means they are nearly always subject to some noise mitigation requirements to meet the Noise at Work Regulations 2005.
Just one compressor on the shop floor can cause unacceptable noise, but naturally, this is multiplied with multiple machines. The level of noise generated varies according to the type of compressor, but in general, the more moving parts, the louder the noise. Reciprocating compressors add additional vibration control requirements to manage the transfer of structural borne noise. This noise is amplified and spread in typical industrial environments involving concrete floors, hard surfaces and larger reverberant open areas. Excessive compressor noise in the workplace can negatively impact on workforce health, morale, motivation, communication and productivity.
