Pump Noise Control

Pump are often noisy an effective solution is often required to suppress the noise emitted from them. Pump noise is usually a nuisance because they are sitting on comparatively lightweight structures. Noise levels in the assembly area did not exceed OSHA guidelines, management was concerned with worker moral and reductions in productivity. The Main source of noise are the power unit, elctric motor noise and pump noise.
To soundproof pump we suggest using our sound blankets or sound curtains system. Sound blankets are quilted blankets that offer high noise control and an easy access for all your maintenance needs.
Noise Applications
Outdoor sound curtains are used to enclose outdoor chillers, Pumps and hydraulic pumps. They serve as partitions for blower noise and outdoor fence construction. The panels also control noise from industrial projects like HVAC units. Factories, industrial sites, mining and manufacturing facilities commonly use them to comply with OSHA’s industrial safety noise levels.
Outdoor sound curtains reduce noise from chillers, generators, pumps, and equipment. The panels are flexible and can be installed on frames, fences, and other types of support. They are seen on the fences of construction sites, by-pass pumps, rooftop barriers, and gas Pumps. The panels are modular and versatile. They are able to withstand prolonged UV exposure, high heat and are reusable.
The best way to Soundproof a Pump is to use our Sound Curtains Noise Barrier or Outdoor Sound Curtains that are an economical and effective method of reducing noise generated by equipment, pumps, generators or other processes that are outside and are exposed to the elements. This unique composite material combines a sound absorber with a noise barrier into a flexible and versatile panel.
Sound Curtains panels are modular and can be installed on fences, frames, or other support structure. Applications are varied and include construction fencing, roof top barriers, by-pass pumps, gas Pumps and many others.
The best way to soundproof and to reduce any noise from a Pump regardless of size is to enclose it within a Floor Mounted 4-Sided Soundproofing Acoustic blanket Enclosure. For best results the enclosure should be as large as possible to allow less heat buildup and also to be more effective at reducing the noise output from reaching other areas and acoustically isolating the Pump to contain structure borne sound being transmitted from where it is mounted.

Depending on the current sound levels of the Pump and your noise reduction goals, an abatement solution can be determined. In most applications a soundproofing soundproofing blanket enclosure will meet your sound reduction needs. This is a two to four sided soundproofing enclosure with or without a roof. Typically a frame and track is constructed to suspend the soundproofing curtain panels. The soundproofing blankets material is a composite material bonding mass loaded vinyl with an acoustical absorber and faced with a vinyl diamond stitched facing.
Using our Soundproofing Acoustic Blankets to construct a 4-sided noise control solution will significantly reduce sound. The noise reduction to be expected is a range of 20 to 40 decibels. The better the construction, weight of blankets and amount of soundproofing acoustic blankets used (the surface area) all factor into your sound reduction numbers. Ensuring all corners and edges are tight and that there are no gaps is a major factor. The size of the blankets in which the amount of surface area that is available to dissipate and contain the noise is the other major factor.
Reducing noise by 20 to 40 decibels with this cost-effective, durable material is one of the best ways to solve noise control issues in commercial, facility & industrial markets

• Silenced passive or forced air ventilation available
• Easy access to the equipment
• Enclosure easily installed and moved with equipment
• Class A (or 1) flammability rated per ASTM E84Noise Problem: An Air Pump located in a shop against a wall or in a corner, with continuous or discontinued motor or air Pump noise. Sound is reflected by the walls enclosing the Pump. Once the Pump cycles, the noise becomes unbearable to employees and customers in the shop.Noise Solution:Noise Control USA will provide an enclosure manufactured of NC-AB12 sound curtain panels surrounding the Pump. These enclosures are usually two, three or four sided with an open top.Depending on the case and demand we can provide you with a roof and ventilation system as well.

Heavy-Duty structural steel systems availableUnwanted sound like from jack hammers, bull dozers, pile drivers, welding equipments, Pumps and more are blocked with our sound blanket fence.To help mitigate noise for all surrounding the construction site, architects and engineers have started specializing in noise control! Also the OSHA has released documentation on noise and sound control on construction sites.A sound blanket fence is usually installed before excavation; typically a perimeter fence is installed surrounding the construction site for safety our sound blocking blanket can be directly attached to your existing fence, these panels are modular, come with grommets and are as easy to install as they are to remove. This is the most efficient action you may take to prevent complaints of close by neighbors and residents about construction site noise.Applications
