Power Plant Noise Control

HSE Sound control Equipment offer assistance with client power plant noise control needs.  HSE offer on-site acoustic engineering, acoustic consulting, sound measurement evaluation & Sound Control Equipment supply & erection work.  After the noise sources have been identified, HSE will provide acoustic products.

Common Noise Sources:

  • Turbine
  • Generators
  • Fan Intake & Exhaust (PA, ID, FD fans)
  • Motors
  • Boilers
  • Chillers
  • Steam Exhaust
  • Centrifugal blowers
  • Compressors
  • Piping and ducts

Each of the above pieces of equipment has the potential of generating high noise levels. Below is a list of noise problem solutions to address these issues.

  • Duct Silencers – It provides a high level of sound reduction in forced airflow applications. Used in stacks, larger ID fans, HVAC Ducts building ventilation and many others. Can be applied as a retrofit or the design stage.
  • Mufflers – Same as duct silencers, but applicable to motors or compressed air piping to reduce equipment exhaust noise. Typically applied to chillers, blowers, compressors, generators.
  • Acoustical Louvers and Acoustic Attneuators– It Provides sound reduction without restricting airflow in buildings and enclosures. Used in place of standard louvers for a high level of noise reduction.
  • Duct and Pipe Lagging – Effective means of reducing breakout noise generated from pipe and ductwork. Piping or ductwork is wrapped with the barrier absorber composite.
  • Acoustic Enclosures – The highest reductions in source noise control. It covers the noisy equipment while providing airflow and access for maintenance through Doors & Acoustic attneuators. Enclose blowers, pumps, fans or any equipment generating high noise levels.
  • Absorptive Panels – It Reduces noise levels in buildings and enclosed spaces. Typically applied to interior or exterior walls to reduce sound reflected from noisy equipment.
  • Sound Barrier Walls – Open top enclosures used to effectively block noise by surrounding noisy equipment while not restricting airflow
