When the manufacturer can’t supply the hush kit you need, we can.
Acoustic Sciences Corporation also make custom solutions to help reduce the noise any kind of high noise air handler or cooling system. The ASC staff will engineer an add-on unit designed to seamlessly fit your existing air intake and/or exhaust. High noise air handler situations, such as those found in the cooling systems for large electronic switching centers, can cause hearing loss for unprotected workers on site. Our goal is to reduce the noise level to OSHA acceptable levels or better.
Row after row of electronic signal processing cabinets are usually cooled by vented updrafts from the air conditioning plenum under the floating floor, but not always. Hot spots in equipment cabinets get extra cooling from air flow booster fans and blowers which always makes unplanned-for noise. That’s when a custom run of Acoustic Sciences Corporation’s matching noise baffles need to be designed, built and delivered.
It’s a big team project, with their engineers, technicians and managers on one side and our in-house staff on the other. Typically our clients will ship or sometimes hand-deliver the blueprints and functioning parts of their noise making equipment. We also partner with a local group of talented specialty fabricators so we get the high quality metal fabrication and painting we need. The goals, along with the long list of constraints, are lined out by our client and we go to work. We measure the noise, and determine how it is made. We design and build models improving each one until it works as desired. We ship it to the client for further testing. After back and forth exchanges, and we all come to an agreement the production version of the baffle is designed. A sample is made and shipped. After it’s approved we fabricate the production run and deliver it.
Our happy customers include many smaller manufacturers and a few big ones, such as: FAA commercial and military airport ASR-9 radar sites, FAA air route traffic control center ARTCC sites, Westinghouse radar equipment, Raytheon contracts, Harris Corp Voice Switcher Cabinets, Liebert Air Handlers and Power Conditioners, EMC Corp’s huge hard drive memory cabinets, and for Texas Instruments, we developed our smallest baffle, about 3/8ths inch square, mounted to the flying head of their last heavy duty impact printer.
