In a plant producing corrugated cardboard, a single facer is a very powerful noise source potentially causing sound nuisance for the personnel operating in the vicinity (in production halls) and sometimes also for the neighborhood. It is often necessary to use in such cases a high-tech soundproofing equipment to ensure the conformity of the facility with respect to the legislation on noise in workplaces and sometimes also with respect to the regulations in terms of fight against domestic noise.
ITS will participate in the construction of an enclosure for a single facer (corrugated cardboard industry) near Nantes in the region Pays de Loire (France).
This soundproofing device will offer a sound reduction particularly important at medium and high frequency where the maximum of the noise emission of the enclosed noisy equipments is, requiring a specific design and a specific construction of the partitions of this enclosure.
The implementation of a performing and well soundproofed ventilation system will be one of the key fators for success of this project, equally with the noise reduction resulting from the implementation of industrial soundproofing construction systems because the production quality depends on it (heat energy and humidity related to the process must be properly evacuated).
Related features such as visibility for the operation of the machines, access for maintenance work, disassembly of some subsets of the soundproofing equipments ... will be integrated according to the needs for this enclosure for a single facer.
The design and construction of such hardware for protection against noise at work, particularly in the corrugated cardboard industry, is a major activity for ITS and its business partners: spread the word !
