Noise Amelioration In The Mining Industry

Sep 06, 2021 The Severity of Noise-Induced Hearing Loss Among Mine Workers. Noise exposure and noise-induced hearing loss are still prevalent in the mining industry. There is no doubt that the majority of miners are exposed to hazardous levels of noise, most exceeding 85 dB, and some the peak exposure standard of 140 dB

    In Environmental Engineering (Fourth Edition), 2003. Industrial Noise Control. Industrial noise control generally involves the replacement of noise-producing machinery or equipment with quieter alternatives. For example, the noise from an air fan may be reduced by increasing the number of blades or the pitch of the blades and decreasing the rotational speed, thus obtaining the same air flow
