In a process unique to the mining industry, mineral ore must be extracted and conveyed to a means of transportation in a challenging environment. This involves the use of high-power fixed and mobile equipment with complex kinematics. The entire process is carried out in cyclic and variable operating conditions with significant safety and accessibility constraints. Mining operations are also a source of noise and vibration pollution both for site workers and people in the surrounding area.
Industrial hygiene is separated into two main applications - Noise at Work and Human Vibration. Norsonic has during the past year expanded the product portfolio to cover both applications. By close cooperation with our customers and health and safety research institutes we have designed a carefully balanced selection of measuring tools and application software that covers both the vibration and noise domain.
The paper industry depends upon a continuous industrial process in which the paper machine is the central factor. This system is based on several variable speed rollers mounted on roller-bearing blocks, and damage to a single block can be enough to shut down production for several hours.
The nuclear industry must increase the availability and reliability of its power stations whilst ensuring that a high level of safety is maintained. The principal weak points in achieving this objective are the industry`s systems and components.
The infrastructure required by the iron and steel industry is considerable, and includes a variety of rotating machines such as pumps, fans and rolling mills. Processes and operating conditions vary according to the product worked, and may involve cyclic operations, complex facilities, and stringent security and accessibility constraints.
Acoustic Associates have been involved on numerous large scale projects, in the quarrying, mining, power generation and waste management sectors where the Secretary of State required full Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) to be able to properly assess and balance the suitability and sustainability of large scale developments. Acoustic Associates can provide the noise chapters for these EIA’s and are happy to work in interdisciplinary teams to provide co-ordinated and seamless reports. Acoustic Associates has...
The Cleveland Vibrator Company offers a wide range of pneumatic, piston-driven, industrial vibrators, knockers, impactors and rappers to dislodge collected dust from precipitator wires and plates or baghouse filter bags as well as keep dust free flowing in collection bins and hoppers.
As a major source of renewable energy, wind turbines are continuing to experience exponential growth, with a production capacity that is doubling every three years. Reliability and the optimisation of maintenance have become major economic challenges for wind turbine operators.
The oil and gas industry requires major infrastructure in terms of refineries and offshore extraction platforms which operate continuously. A large number of essential rotating machines, structures and piping networks are subjected to high levels of demand in a difficult environment, leading to the potential for breakage.
The noise from vehicles such as cars, buses and trucks is wide spread with many people being affected by these noise sources in their daily lives. All modern vehicles will be designed to meet strict safety and emissions standards as well as noise output levels. All vehicles sold in the EU must comply with a range of noise directives to ensure that they meet these specified noise levels when they are sold and many countries enforce regular checks over the life of the vehicle. Motor Sport noise is a often a source...
Neighbour Noise, Environmental Noise & Community Noise. Noise nuisance is a growing issue that continues to hit the headlines. Whether it`s noisy neighbours, barking dogs or music events, the need to measure noise nuisance is rapidly increasing.
Noise ordinance covers the monitoring of noise in major urban areas in the US. Common complaints from residents include: Barking dogs, Noisy neighbours, Loud music, Construction noise, Industrial noise, Transportation noise.
The water and wastewater industry uses a large number of pumps of all sizes and ratings, along with their associated driving motors, and they are often run continuously. Monitoring the health of their bearings using vibration sensors enables faults to be detected early, reducing unplanned maintenance shutdowns and supply interruptions.
Typical locations where vibration sensors can be fitted include vertical pump upper and lower bearings, horizontal pump and compressor inner and outer bearings, and thrust bearings...
Norsonic is a world-leading supplier of sound measuring equipment for the motorsport industry. We have a long experience in supplying sound measurement solutions for racetracks, ranging from single noise monitors to large multichannel monitoring solutions with sophisticated reporting system.
Environmental noise is unwanted sound and vibration coming from a plethora of sources, among them industrial plants, road and rail traffic, construction work, and aircraft. Add to these sports events, shooting ranges, leisure parks, etc, and you have noise from many different sources, each with different characteristics and posing specific problems for the professionals who have to assess them. The way the problems are dealt with differs immensely from country to country and is very much dependent on culture,...
By implementing a noise and vibration monitoring system, the impact of construction site activities can be managed by: Complying with legal requirements relating to public health sanctioning the absence of appropriate precautions to limit abnormally high levels of noise and vibrations. Taking environmental quality considerations into account (HQE approach). Limiting noise and vibration pollution with the comfort of neighbouring residents in mind. Enabling companies in the public works and construction industry to...
Dusts and fumes coming out of part of induction melting fumaces are collected by means of special designed suctioning apparatus and are filtered in both BOMAKSAN brand, Hatemak serial high performance "Cyclone" and long-life "Jet Pulse Cartridge Filter". In addition, dusts coming out of vibration screen used during mould distortion are filtered in same way.
