The Generator Sound Control barrier wall packages are designed to provide effective sound control for the generator skid units and the Canpac skids of top drive drilling rigs. Typically, a 16 foot high STC-25 temporary generator noise control wall system is installed around the generators, mud pump skids, and the Canpac skids as close as possible to the noise sources while allowing for access and adequate airflow. Installing an STC-25 acoustical barrier wall around the generators, mud pumps and Campac skids can reduce operational noise levels 15 to 22 dBA.
The ENC Generator Sound Control noise barrier walls panel system is constructed with 8 foot high by 20 foot long steel frames with 8 foot high by 20 foot long STC-25 acoustical blankets mounted on each frame. Each blanket panel has a 1 foot wide sealing flap on the bottom and on one side to provide acoustical sealing with the adjacent panels when installed. The acoustical panels are typically installed two panels high (16′ high) and affixed to steel support poles installed on 10 foot centers. The acoustical panels are connected to the vertical support structures with specially designed connectors that allow quick installation and removal for drilling rig noise control.
