Sound Solutions for Noise and Acoustics

Noise is un­healthy. Not just for people, but also for struc­tures as a res­ult of vi­bra­tion. KAEFER of­fers in­nov­at­ive and tailored solu­tions to deal with noise ef­fect­ively and ef­fi­ciently.

It all starts with meas­ure­ment. Our en­gin­eers analyze noise levels and ori­gins with state-of-the-art equip­ment and de­velop noise pro­tec­tion meas­ures that are tailored ex­actly and in­di­vidu­ally to each fa­cil­ity or build­ing. These are tested and de­veloped in our own acous­tic labor­at­ory, which fea­tures a wall test stand as well as a pipe in­su­la­tion test fa­cil­ity. That means we can of­fer high-qual­ity, customized sound ab­sorbers, acous­tic en­clos­ures, acous­tic screens as well as pipe and ves­sel in­su­la­tion com­bined with thermal re­quire­ments to our cli­ents.

For ex­ample, in ships and off­shore fa­cil­it­ies, our Cor­por­ate Op­er­a­tions Ex­cel­lence – Tech­nical Ex­cel­lence & Sup­port Acous­tics team makes com­plete pre­dic­tions of noise and vi­bra­tion levels on the basis of lay­outs and ar­chi­tec­tural designs. They de­velop customized noise pro­tec­tion meas­ures such as lin­ings, sus­pen­ded ceil­ings, float­ing or elastic floors and si­len­cers. These can be com­bined with fire pro­tec­tion or thermal in­su­la­tion and ful­fil all in­ter­na­tional stand­ards and re­quire­ments.

Re­gard­less of whether it’s about re­du­cing noise or optimizing acous­tics and ab­sorb­ing sounds in ships and off­shore fa­cil­it­ies, in­dus­trial plants, rooms or build­ings, KAEFER has the the­or­et­ical and prac­tical ex­pert­ise to make it hap­pen ef­fect­ively and cost-ef­fi­ciently.

Thermal in­su­la­tion is about keep­ing hot things hot and cold things cold, con­serving en­ergy in the pro­cess.  And in times of in­creased en­vir­on­mental pres­sures and en­ergy costs, thermal in­su­la­tion is more im­port­ant than ever.

Hot processes lose heat from the surfaces of pipes, ductwork, vessels and equipment.  With the right insulation you can greatly reduce heat loss, protect workers from injury, reduce operating costs and lower greenhouse emissions.  Certain processes need specific temperatures in order to work properly.  Choosing the right insulation system can maximize long term savings while providing the most cost competitive solutions at the front end.

From the design stages to installation, KAEFER has the ability and expertise to provide value-added services to our client's bottom line - economically and environmentally.
