Rubber granulator

The Problem

Rubber granulator

A company manufacturing rubber automotive door and weather protection seals used a large granulator to process the waste material ready for recycling. The noise level associated with this was 99dB.

The Solution

A purpose made metal acoustic enclosure was constructed around the granulator.

The material for recycling is fed into the granulator through a slot as can be seen in the photograph.

The Results

The noise level was reduced by 10dB to 89dB.

The Costs

£25,000 (2005 rates).
