To reduce drawworks brake noise levels, Environmental Noise Control, Inc. fabricates and installs three-piece drawworks brake shroud systems. The acoustical drawworks brake shroud system is composed of three STC-35 acoustical blanket panels. One acoustical panel is designed to line the base of the drum housing, absorb sound, and barrier the brake noise within the drawworks housing. A two-piece blanket panel system was designed to be installed on the front portion of the drawworks housing to provide drilling rig noise control, absorption of the drawworks steel housing, and reduce the area of the cable travel, thus reducing the noise escaping from the drawworks housing.
Each drawworks shroud system is custom fabricated for the rig’s drawwork. Drawworks brake noise control of 5 to 12 dBA on the rig floor can be achieved with the installation of this system.
