Sound Power Testing
UNDERSTANDING OPERATING SOUND CHARACTERISTICS
Sound power testing provides a much more thorough approach to understanding machine noise and is undertaken in carefully controlled conditions to simulate a range of operating conditions. This dynamic sound power testing measurement is implemented on a ramp and comprises, stationary, uphill loaded, downhill loaded (using retard) testing.
Incorporating a range of settings to simulate a variety of operating conditions, our experts are able to generate a complete understanding of sound characteristics in both ramped and open settings with no reflective surfaces nearby to interfere with sound power measurement. The result offers operators complete insight into each machine's sound profile and enables our experts to tailor sound attenuation strategy specific to the findings.
With these insights, MINETEK can develop and implement a sound suppression package which meets regulatory requirements in the most efficient and cost-effective manner, all while protecting workers' hearing and reducing impacts on the environment.

MINETEK initially provided products for heavy mobile equipment noise abatement at the New Acland Mine. These installations have been very successful and prompted the contracting of MINETEK to conduct a full mobile fleet and fixed plant noise monitoring assessment at the Acland mine site.
We have utilised MINETEK for a number of sound attenuation projects in the Hunter Valley and have formed an excellent relationship with Glencore over many years. MINETEK understand our industry and always provide a solid and professional commitment to meeting our goals and objectives."
The ability to deliver equipment on time has been a feature of our dealing and we haven't had a situation where a variation has been requested. The quality of their workmanship has been good and the capability of hardware has been as expected or better than quoted”
Kipoi have successfully utilized MINETEK WATER evaporators on our process water pond to remove mine water and has contributed to help with our water balance. We are currently in the process of moving these units to where the catchment area is larger giving us better utilization of the evaporators.
MINETEK have been instrumental in the design of products used on our mining equipment. Our engagement with them is a true business partnership.
