Noise monitoring for industrial sites

by Larson Davis, a division of PCB Piezotronics     based in Depew, NEW YORK (USA)

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 the petrochemical industry

by Larson Davis, a division of PCB Piezotronics     based in Depew, NEW YORK (USA)

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.

Sound Instrumentation for Industrial Hygiene

by Norsonic AS     based in Lierskogen, NORWAY

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.

Sound level measurement for safety regulations

by Casella     based in Kempston, UNITED KINGDOM

Hand held instruments for the measurement of an employee`s noise exposure. Frequency analysis within Sound Level Meters can also be used to determine the correct selection of hearing protection.

Noise Monitoring for Industry

by Cirrus Environmental     based in Peterborough, UNITED KINGDOM

For Industrial Noise Monitoring applications, Cirrus Environmental can supply a range portable, semi-permanent or permanent noise monitors as well as the MK:427 NoiseSensor for integration into existing data logging systems.

Noise monitoring solutions for repetitive testing

by Brüel & Kjær Sound & Vibration Measurement A/S     based in Nærum, DENMARK

Many analytical tools used for research and development focus on making single measurements, and are designed accordingly. However, in many industries, test programs are performed that involve large numbers of repeated tests on test objects in various configurations or with various modifications. This is repetitive testing. The tests done are generally standardised, and often performed in a dedicated test area.

Sound Instrumentation for Measuring Sound

by Norsonic AS     based in Lierskogen, NORWAY

What is the difference between sound and noise? Clearly more than the loudness only. Although an aircraft is very noisy, a mosquito at night-time can be more than enough to spoil a good night`s sleep. Instead of looking at the loudness only as a criterion for the degree of noisiness, we shall simply regard noise as what it is - viz. unwanted sound.

Short term noise measurement for safety consulting

by Casella     based in Kempston, UNITED KINGDOM

For environmental noise monitoring when short measurements are required using a hand held Sound Level Meter. This could be for boundary monitoring of industrial sites or noise surveys for planning purposes.

Noise monitoring solutions for room acoustics

by Brüel & Kjær Sound & Vibration Measurement A/S     based in Nærum, DENMARK

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 environmental noise and vibration

by Brüel & Kjær Sound & Vibration Measurement A/S     based in Nærum, DENMARK

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, economy and politics. We offer solutions to cover all demands from level checks to in-depth analysis, from measurement or prediction, to post-processing and reporting.

Pulsar noise testing equipment for construction industry

by Pulsar Instruments plc     based in Filey, UNITED KINGDOM

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 workplace sector

by Pulsar Instruments plc     based in Filey, UNITED KINGDOM

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.

Noise monitoring solutions for occupational health

by Brüel & Kjær Sound & Vibration Measurement A/S     based in Nærum, DENMARK

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.

Noise monitoring for workplaces

by Casella     based in Kempston, UNITED KINGDOM

Measurement of the noise exposure of an individual over the working day. They should be used for mobile workforces where it is not always practical to measure with a hand held Sound Level Meter.
