Sound has its place in our lives. Can you imagine a quiet police or fire siren? Going to a concert and having to be quiet to hear the music? How about being able to hear crickets when a walk off home run is hit during a postseason baseball game? No! Sound & noise aren’t always unwelcome in our lives.
However, sometimes sound does not have a place and does not belong. Such as when you’re trying to repair your steam boiler and the PRV above your head sounds like a 747. Perhaps you’re on a conference call and the machine on the other side of your office’s wall sounds like it is jackhammering the wall to pieces.
The problem with industrial machines that make this much racket is that they usually generate heat. Most sound deadening materials are only effective up to 140f. This is a problem when the machine has a touch temperature of 200f. Rather than a sound problem, we now have a potential fire. Fortunately, there is a solution!
Removable insulation can now be built with layers of insulation, facing the machines, to reduce the heat with each layer of insulation. Insulation thickness is designed to reduce the temperature to allow for sound deadening material (Mass Loaded Vinyl or Silent Tread) to be installed.
