 Determination of sound power
 
In the majority of cases, technical specifications of "noisy" products (e.g. air-conditioners, pumps, fans, generators, lawnmowers) do not provide adequate information about the emission of noise.

 

Pollution Control Consultancy and Design (PCCD) carry out tests, which determine the:

  1. sound power level of products (in 1/3 octave bands), based on in-situ measurements of the sound intensity
    (for details, please see: SOUND POWER);
     
  2. tonality (in 1/3-octave bands or narrow-bands);
     
  3. impulsiveness;

which are essential to predict the noise impact of products operating in a particular location, in terms of the EPA New South Wales Industrial Noise Policy (INP).

Such information allow to determine whether the products need any noise control measures (e.g. an acoustical enclosure, a silencer, a noise barrier) in the particular location.
