    Shredders and crushers for refrigerator recycling

    Erdwich reclaims even Pentane and CFCs with 99% purity! Several million scrap refrigerator units are disposed of every year in Germany alone. The proportion of refrigeration units recycled by volume totals about 40% and is the most significant segment after consumer electronics. One particular challenge in this recycling process is presented by chlorofluorocarbons such as R 11, R 12 or R 141b, which were used for decades as foaming agents for insulation materials. Since these substances damage the Earth’s ozone layer when released, they must be removed and collected securely in a closed-system pre-processing plant. The fact that pre-processing of legacy refrigeration units always needs to be carried out in accordance with the latest technological standards means that plant operators gain a decisive advantage when working with an innovative and experienced plant manufacturer.

  • Noise monitoring solutions for Pass-by noise testing

    Traditional Field Pass-by measurements are still the only way to certify a vehicle for exterior noise emission during operation, but Indoor Pass-by provides an extremely powerful and repeatable method of troubleshooting exterior vehicle noise in the controlled environment ofan anechoic chamber.

  • 2-Channel sound insulation for building acoustics

    Façade sound insulation is measured like sound insulation between rooms, except that one `room` is actually open space. The sound level is measured inside the receiving room and outside the façade of the building. The level difference is then corrected for the influence of the reverberation time and background noise level in the receiving room. Finally a single-number index is calculated by averaging over all the frequency bands. A loudspeaker source can be used for the measurement, giving a choice of sound incidence angle. But in practice, placing the loudspeaker and getting a high enough sound level can be difficult.

  • Noise and vibration problem solutions for education sector

  • System Integration Noise Solutions

    Environmental noise monitors that connect directly to process measurement and control systems. Many industrial plants have a variety of process sensors strategically placed around their site so that safety, environmental impact and efficiency can be monitored and managed, in real time, from one or more control rooms.

  • Noise monitoring for railways and trains

    Controlling and monitoring railway and train noise in residential and urban areas is a critical function of a railway. The noise generated can be dependent upon the engine, rail cars, rail construction, train speed, and the horn. Modern high speed trains have also created new levels of high frequency noise that create an acoustic disturbance that sounds like an aircraft going by.

  • For Animal Shelters

    Troy Acoustics Corporation and the multi-faceted designs and products it produces are well versed in the requirements of animal shelters for the purpose of reducing objectionable sounds from within the facility and minimizing their transference to locations outside and adjacent to the shelter building and grounds.

  • For General Industry

    Considerations for sound abatement abound within certain industrial facilities.  The new OSHA compliance mandates require noise control for employees and visitors to these facilities who may be exposed to continuous influences of high sound levels and reverberation properties, due to activities within these facilities.  Troy Acoustics™ provides the Troy System™ materials and design solutions, which have been proven to minimize the effects of these objectionable sound levels and their effects, to insure compliance with current OSHA standards.

  • Noise monitoring for industrial sites

    Industrial noise generated from plants, mills, refineries, shipping docks, utilities, and more, impact the quality of the surrounding community.  By controlling and monitoring this noise a community and industry can establish a working relationship that will benefit all.  An effective noise monitoring program will allow an industrial site to understand the noise sources and time periods that are causing concerns and then develop a plan for mitigation.

  • Noise monitoring solutions for material testing

    With today`s growing focus on noise control issues and the emergence of sound quality as an important aspect of product design, acoustic material testing is becoming increasingly relevant to engineers, designers and manufacturers from a broad range of industries. Acoustic material testing is the process by which the acoustic characteristics of materials are determined in terms of absorption, reflection, impedance, and admittance, including transmission loss.

  • Traffic noise monitoring

    Traffic noise impacts millions of people at home and at work. Traffic noise can impact your ability to work, learn rest, play, relax, and sleep. This form of noise can also lead to mental and physical health concerns. The noise is dependent upon such issues as: Traffic volume. Traffic Speed. Vehicle Content. Road Surface. Surrounding Area.

  • Noise monitoring solutions for urban noise

    The sounds in a city are central to our quality of life. Constant exposure to noise effects both our physical and psychological health, and our ability to learn and communicate.

  • 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 solutions for room acoustics

    Room Acoustics concerns the way sound is created, propagated, perceived, measured and modelled inside enclosures. Enclosures can be dwellings, offices, workshops, factory halls, lecture rooms, auditoria, concert halls, transportation terminals, etc. Reverberation Time is the single most important parameter used to describe Room Acoustics, but in addition, parameters describing music quality and speech inteligibility are important.

  • Noise monitoring solutions for occupational health

    Occupational Safety and Health is a major concern throughout the world. Problems such as a broken limb, the loss of an eye or persistent backache have to be dealt with and measures taken to minimise the risk of these things happening at the workplace.

  • Sound Insulation solutions for building acoustics

    Sound energy does not remain in the room where it is produced, but propagates throughout the building by any available path, intruding into other rooms as noise. Each country has its own standards of sound insulation in buildings, but it is measured in the same way all over the world. The noise levels in the two rooms under investigation are measured and subtracted, and the level difference is corrected for the influence of the reverberation time and background noise level in the receiving room. The measurements and calculations are made in 1/1- or 1/3-octave bands and averaged over a number of positions in the rooms. Finally a single-number index is calculated by averaging over all the frequency bands.

  • 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 adopt a transparent approach to communication with local residents, in order to avoid resistance and instead gain their support for a given project. Providing the site manager with reliable and official data, should it be required. 01dB offers solutions for construction professionals to suit the requirements of each building site. It provides them with metrological systems (such as the certified DUO sound level meter, dB4 and MR2002) with 01dB WebMonitoring services to ensure optimal control of noise & vibration impact of the construction work, using as well communication tools intended for the general public.
