The Challenge:

To provide noise and vibration relief for nearby residents stemming from a piece of equipment at the Permacon facility. If unable to use this equipment, Permacon would be facing a significant loss of revenue.

The Innovation:

After other consultants had attempted to solve the issue, Aercoustics was brought in to troubleshoot and determine if there was a feasible solution. We analyzed the situation by collecting our own noise and vibration data and determined that we could implement a custom solution to isolate the vibrating part of the equipment that would eliminate the problem. We designed the system and optimized the isolators to focus the maximum reduction on the dominant frequencies. The complaints were eliminated, and as an unexpected and added bonus, the isolation also enhanced the production capacity of the machine.
