Soundproofing of a cogeneration unit
ITS participated in the soundproofing of a cogeneration unit at a petrochemical site located in North America.
It was a unit producing electricity and steam (used for industrial processes), built in a refinery, and giving pride of place to very noisy machines and equipment including a combustion turbine (of power greater than 40 MW) and an alternator, both of which were the subject of soundproofing work.
Cogeneration unit site constraints were distinguished by the need to respect noise levels...
Improved restaurant acoustics for noise limitation
Improving the acoustics of a restaurant for noise limitation is often a necessity in view of the disadvantages that (if not) presents the situation resulting from the absence of particular precautions regarding sound comfort.
This did not escape the fine observer of everyday life in Western Europe in the 20th century (but how different is the beginning of the 21th from this point of view?) that Georges Simenon was, who so well transcribed in his many novels.
"The rumor that filled the grill...
Acoustic louvres for soundproofing
Acoustic louvres for soundproofing are appropriate when it comes (often: with little space available) to allow air renewal of a confined space (e.g. because of the presence of a noise barrier, a canopy or a sound enclosure) or even the air intake or the discharge of a ventilation network (or of an industrial process), while limiting noise propagation through the opening required in a such context.
There are therefore many situations for which acoustical louvres for soundproofing can usefully...
