Water & Waste Water

Controlling noise from industrial plant operating 24/7 near to houses

Many water and waste water treatment works are located in urban areas and are therefore close to dwellings, potentially creating both Noise at Work and Environmental Noise issues.

As these facilities operate round the clock, they must achieve suitable noise levels so as not to disrupt residents even when sleeping with open bedroom windows. However, the noise control systems these facilities implement cannot adversely affect operation of the plant; they must also allow access for routine maintenance and plant repairs.

For example, difficulties with access for maintenance may result in panels being left off an acoustic enclosure, allowing noise to escape unattenuated and compromising the primary purpose of the acoustic enclosure.

Our approach to Solving Noise Problems using The Highest Suitable Noise Level™ enables plant owners and operators to make informed decisions about the best solution for their specific requirements. The experts at Acoustical Control can help with these typical processes that require acoustic solutions:

  • Odour control applications
  • Aeration processes
  • Sludge treatment
  • Ventilation systems

We can also find creative solutions for these sources of noise or vibration:

  • Pumps and fluid handling systems
  • Blowers
  • Electric motors
  • Centrifuges
  • Compressors
  • Fans
  • Pipework

We have unique dual experience as both acoustic consultants and acoustic engineers – with expertise in designing, manufacturing, and installing engineered solutions for a wide range of noise and vibration control problems. Our Acoustic Consultancy expertise, backed by years of practical Acoustic Engineering experience allows us to identify the most cost effective tailored solutions.
