This compressor station was generating noise levels in the 90+ dBA range. Since it was sufficiently close to residences to cause noise problems.
The Customer enlisted the expert assistance of an acoustical engineer who, after conducting a formal noise analysis on the site, recommended the absorptive noise barrier as the best remedy for the application.
Sound Fighter® Systems designed a 3-sided absorptive noise barrier for the facility that effectively screened and reduced unwanted noise to acceptable levels at the Receiver.
This barrier significantly exceeded guaranteed our sound attenuation panels performed by providing a 22 dBA reduction at near-distances.
By reducing noise levels without the need for a full enclosure, Sound Fighter® also eliminated concerns over heat-buildup and air flow for the compressors.
Sound Fighter® provided:
- Detailed engineered product drawings, layout drawings and installation drawings.
- Custom color-match noise barrier sections and top caps
- Double personnel door sets with escape hardware
- Custom-engineered, hot-dipped galvanized structural steel framework, footers and base channels
