Solutions to Reduce Acoustic Noise in the Analytical Laboratory
Quiet Vacuum Pumps, Water Chillers, Nitrogen Generators & More Achieved with Soundproof Acoustic Enclosures
Laboratories with mass spectrometers and scanning electron microscopes are often annoyingly noisy. The culprits? The ubiquitous vacuum pump, that steadily whines at an irritating 500Hz. Or a water chiller chattering in the corner. Or the high pitched whine of an ultrasonic bath.
The MS Noise solution? A specially designed vacuum pump enclosure made of sound absorbing materials to improve noise.
Noise reduction boxes, manufactured by MS Noise, are guaranteed to reduce noise by 75%, or 15 dB(A).
Features of MS Noise Soundproof Enclosures
Materials of construction include high quality flame and oil- proof automotive grade acoustic foam, selected to provide long lasting sound absorption in a warm enclosure.
Aggressive ventilation removes the risk of your device over heating inside the enclosure. Each fan delivers about 60 cfm of flow through the enclosure.
Access slots allow convenient entry of hoses and cords into the enclosure. Polypropylene brush material prevents any noise from escaping.
Panels on the side of the enclosure make ballast checking easy.
The top panel of all enclosures lifts off for access. The larger double enclosures have doors in the front.
Popular Soundproof Enclosure Options
Heavy duty stainless steel tray with four casters, two lockable, helps when the enclosure needs to be moved around.
The tray also acts as secondary containment of vacuum pump oil leaks, which may contain hazardous chemicals.
Over Heat Alarm
Although every effort is made to keep the temperature inside the enclosure cool, there may be instances of overheat, particularly if thee is a loss in power to the enclosure. This occurs most often if power is disconnected to the enclosure.
A battery supported overheat alarm delivers an audio-visual alarm in the event of an overheat condition inside the enclosure.
