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.
