Ensuring that you can run your generator with as little disruption to your business as possible is an important factor to consider when investing in a generator.
Here are 5 ways to reduce noise from your generator:
Distance – The easiest way to reduce the noise from a generator is to have the generator installed at a distance from where your business operates. When the generator is moved further away, the energy is spread over a greater distance, decreasing the acoustic intensity.
Enclosures – Installing your generator in an industrial unit will ensure that the enclosure acts as an acoustic barrier and limits sound beyond it.
There is a noise reduction up to 10dB the generator is in a standard generator canopies or enclosure. A larger reduction of noise can happen when your generator is installed in a custom-built enclosure.
Insulation – Adding insulation to your enclosure will help absorb the noise, echo, and vibration within the generator enclosure.
Insulation involves lining hard surfaces with sound-absorbing materials or installing acoustic wall panels and tiles.
Anti-vibration Mounts – Setting anti-vibration mounts underneath your generator removes vibrations and decreases noise transmission. Anti-vibration mounts are available in a lot of different options including mounts, spring mounts, spring mounts, and dampers.
Attenuators – For industrial generators, the most effective way of reducing noise transmission is through attenuators. It is a device that enables large amounts of air to pass through it but limits the transmission of noise. Attenuation can reduce noise by 50-90dB.
