    Ambient air quality monitoring at airports

    To measure the ambient air quality at airports is a challenge. The monitoring site needs to be representative for background levels and not dependant on changes in local traffic. A large number of gaseous components need to be measured with high accuracy and high availability. The OPSIS DOAS system provides the user with a fast system that gives high availability at low cost. The impact of aircraft take-offs and landings can easily be followed on-line. The OPSIS system can also monitor fugitive emissions from other sources at the airport.

  • 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.

  • Noise monitoring for the petrochemical industry

    Many industrial operations take place over lengthy time periods and operations often continue 24 hours a day.  By implementing a 24 hour noise monitoring system, with real-time communication and alert notification, a plant can demonstrate to the community and regulatory agencies that they are sensitive to the community and prepared to root-cause and correct any problems that may arise.

  • 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 for airports

    Airports, small and large, use noise and operations monitoring systems to reduce the noise of flight operations in the surrounding community.  Noise monitoring is generally used to evaluate noise abatement programs and to develop aircraft departure and arrival procedures that minimize the impact of aircraft noise based upon altitude, flight path, and time of day.  Noise monitoring is linked with radar tracking so that specific aircraft can be identified when noise limits are exceeded and so operational requirements can be enforced.
    Larson Davis provides noise monitoring systems to airports, consultants, and system integrators with the technology and support to make a successful program.

  • Wind farm noise monitoring

    Wind energy is a renewable energy source that is being harnessed globally to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and the associated impact on our environment. However, the environmental impact of the turbine noise and the blade pass noise is a concern that is carefully monitored and generally regulated. It is very important to be able to acquire accurate acoustical data for analysis, noise impact predictions, and regulatory compliance. Effective noise monitoring is a very valuable tool to manage a wind farm’s relationship with the community and with the local regulatory organizations.

  • 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.

  • Pulsar noise testing equipment for construction industry

    The construction sector and its wide range of associated activities are very varied and from a noise monitoring perspective offer many unique challenges. However, Pulsar Instruments have a solution; a construction Pulsar noise meter with the ability to effectively assess the following two key categories; Noise at Work (potential for noise induced hearing loss due to long term exposure to noisy activities). Environmental Noise (the potential to cause annoyance to surrounding areas or buildings during site work).

  • Pulsar noise testing equipment for vehicle noise measurement industry

    In a world where there is a drive for everything to be quieter, vehicle noise measurement and control is a growing application. If measurements need to be made to ISO 5130:2007, which is an internationally recognised standard for vehicle exhaust noise testing, a more detailed measurement needs to be made. ISO 5130:2007 requires three consecutive measurements to ensure repeatability. These measurements are taken at a specified engine speed, or RPM, and the maximum sound level produced during the test is taken.

  • Noise monitoring for communities

    Whether you are in the city, suburb or at a weekend getaway location, noise is an important factor in determining your quality of life or the success of your business.  Many areas have local noise legislation that defines the noise limits that can be produced and experienced during the day or at night.  This noise may be generated by vehicle traffic, aircraft, industrial sites, construction projects, entertainment events, or many other activities.

  • Pulsar noise testing equipment for workplace sector

    Workplace noise monitoring is an interesting subject that can appear complex, but it is always worth remembering what you are trying to achieve. This can be summarised as: ““Minimising or avoiding the risk of noise-induced hearing loss in the workplace to comply with local, noise-based, legislation”” Such legislation is usually based on a European Directive that is then modified to suit the needs of each particular country. For example, in the United Kingdom, the ‘The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005’ are based on the European Union Directive 2003/10/EC; usually called “The physical agents (noise)” directive and expanded upon by the Health & Safety Executive.

  • Pulsar noise testing equipment for environmental noise monitoring

    Environmental noise is a major issue in most countries, especially in areas of high population, and the sources of noise and their adverse effects on our well-being are varied. In terms of assessing the impact of these issues, we need to be able to make suitable noise measurements, or in some cases monitor the noise levels for longer periods.
