  • Noise and vibration monitoring for the construction site - Construction & Construction Materials

    Noise and vibration monitoring for the construction site

    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...

  • Noise and vibration monitoring for city monitoring - Environmental

    Noise and vibration monitoring for city monitoring

    Noise has become the primary source of environmental disturbance. In 2002, the European Union took decisive action in the form of directive 2002/49/CE relating to the assessment and management of environmental noise. Through the use of strategic noise mapping, every urban community must implement an action plan to combat noise pollution. The monitoring of noise levels in urban environments is therefore an essential factor.

  • Noise and vibration monitoring for race circuit monitoring - Automobile & Ground Transport

    Noise and vibration monitoring for race circuit monitoring

    Certain leisure activities, and motor sports in particular, are a source of elevated noise levels. They cause significant disturbance for nearby residents, particularly as such sites are being developed in increasingly densely populated urban areas.

  • Noise monitoring for wind farm monitoring - Energy - Wind

    Noise monitoring for wind farm monitoring

    Wind farms must be developed in such a way that they become a part of the environmental lanscape. To this end, public authorities use standards and regulations to impose limits on the noise levels generated by such installations.

  • Noise monitoring for industrial plant monitoring - Environmental

    Noise monitoring for industrial plant monitoring

    Industrial sites are subject to regulations that limit sound and vibration levels at their perimeter and with regard to third parties. The taking of measurements at intervals remains one of the most frequently used methods of evaluating the noise and vibration levels of such sites.

  • Noise monitoring for airport noise - Aerospace & Air Transport - Airports

    Noise monitoring for airport noise

    Air traffic is the source of several forms of disturbance to the surrounding area, including, in particular, noise pollution. Local residents in the vicinity of an airport are the most severely affected and are very conscious of the aircrafts` flight paths and the impact on their day-to-day living conditions.

  • Noise and vibration pollution control for mining industry - Mining

    Noise and vibration pollution control for mining industry

    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.

  • Noise and vibration pollution control for paper industry - Pulp & Paper

    Noise and vibration pollution control for paper industry

    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.

  • Noise and vibration monitoring for iron and steel industry - Metal - Steel

    Noise and vibration monitoring for iron and steel industry

    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.

  • Noise and vibration pollution control for wind power industry - Energy - Wind

    Noise and vibration pollution control for wind power industry

    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.

  • Noise and vibration monitoring for nuclear power industry - Energy - Nuclear

    Noise and vibration monitoring for nuclear power industry

    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.

  • Noise and vibration monitoring for oil and gas industry - Oil, Gas & Refineries

    Noise and vibration monitoring for oil and gas industry

    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.
