Reduced noise pollution by reducing resonance using absorbent panels
In industrial environments machine noise can easily exceed legal limits. The consequence is a serious risk to the health of production personnel and/or surrounding residents. In operating areas with hard walls, floors and ceilings the resonance of sound often is a stubborn problem. Hard surfaces cause the noise level to increase and create resonance.
A workable industrial environment within reach
An excessively high noise level and irritating resonance make the area anything but liveable and comfortable. Noise-producing machinery in these areas can be a key contributor to this situation. Sound-absorbent panels mounted against the walls and possibly the ceiling largely remove the resonance, thus significantly reducing noise levels and resonance. This way you create a safe and pleasant work environment for your personnel and nearby residents. Merford would like to provide you with a custom-made solution, potentially in combination with other products, such as housings, ventilation silencers or doors, as necessary. The many custom-work options in terms of insulation, absorption, form, dimension and finish enable Merford to offer a good solution to virtually any noise problem, for existing as well as new installations.
Merford has 35 years of experience with the application of absorbent panels in various industrial sectors, as a result of which we understand your specific problem perfectly. Merford always provides you with a ready-for-use solution. We provide noise control guarantees so that you can be sure that the solution meets your specified requirements.

Total acoustic solution for Praxair compressor building in Antwerp
In 2013, the American company, Praxair, announced the construction of a second air separation plant in the port of Antwerp. The plant is scheduled to be delivered in mid-2016. Merford has equipped a large compressor building in this plant with measures designed to make the entire building silent to its surroundings.
Large Test Cells for ABC Engines
Merford has supplied the largest test cells it has ever built in the Benelux countries for the huge diesel engines manufactured by ABC (Anglo Belgian Corporation) in the Belgian city of Ghent. The test cells consist mostly of concrete, and have removable acoustic wall and roof components. The concrete walls have SKA absorption panels. The test cells also have a ventilation system with silencers and rain hoods. A third test cell will be delivered at the end of 2014.
