New technology dramatically reduces the costs of noise control from machinery and plant compared with acoustic enclosures, silencers, lagging etcA reputation as the major UK developer of innovative engineering noise control techniques is a reassuring guarantee that we can solve your noise control problems in the most practical and cost effective manner possible. Many of our solutions define current noise reduction “best practice” – particularly where maintenance, access, hygiene and productivity are important. There are also many examples where our recommendations have increased profitability through higher productivity and reduced down-time. Our noise control technology is also ideal for the conventionally “difficult” food / drink, electronic and pharmaceutical industries.
Self-Financing Noise Control – profiting from new technology
We have many examples of Self-Financing Noise Control projects across a wide range of plant categories and industries illustrating the cost savings inherent in engineering noise control measures compared with conventional palliatives such as acoustic enclosures, silencers, lagging etc. In many cases, the noise control modifications can be justified simply on the grounds of increased performance, efficiency and productivity, with the noise reduction as an additional benefit. A few examples are listed below.
- vibratory feeders: elimination of fatigue, increased product feed rate by 100%
- fans: eliminated silencer losses and down-time
- weighing machines: elimination of acoustic enclosures, improved access for maintenance and cleaning
- burners: conventional noise control measures insufficiently effective to avoid requirement to shut-down plant
- power presses: enclosures eliminated – reduced down-time
Occupational Noise Control Audit – eliminate placebo assessments
The occupational Control of Noise at Work Regulations (CoNaWR) require a seismic shift in attitude to noise management in the workplace. Quoting the guidance – “these regulations are concerned with controlling noise, not measuring it…”. Consequently, companies must quantify their noise control options rather than simply repeating placebo risk assessments that usually include little or no information on the topic. Moreover, PPE can no longer be used for long term risk management unless it can be proved that noise control is impractical. We can also provide the audit as part of benchmark noise assessment.
Instead of paying for repeat placebo risk assessments, implement a noise control programme that actually reduces the risks – and potentially pays for itself …
The most effective way to meet these regulatory requirements is our Occupational Noise Control Audit – either in place of a repeat risk assessment (saving the associated costs) or appended to a conventional risk assessment update. It is an engineering audit that generates a costed list of the noise control options and associated benefits either for a single machine or for a whole site using the best of current technology. The results not only provide the basis for planning the most practical and cost effective noise control programme possible, they also provide certification for plant where it is shown that noise control is not practical.
