Why Use An Acoustic Camera?

  R&D Director at Ventac, Mark Simms, puts answers to some questions people may have when introducing this new noise mapping tool. Q. What are the main benefits of using this acoustic camera? A. The great thing about this equipment is that it allows both beamforming measurements (live acoustic camera work) and near field holography (detailed up close analysis). The software allows for animated maps of the wave motion for the near filed work and it can display this in a 3 dimensional format. This combination of abilities makes the camera a very powerful noise source identification tool but also one that can provide real insight into the source of noise generation.   Q. Does it speed up the process of testing both on site and in the laboratory? A. This very much depends on the application. There was a case where a problem noise from a machine was eluding our client for months despite having experience in acoustics and the camera was able to identify the source within a morning which led to a straight forward fix. On the other hand, another client used the camera to conduct a comprehensive sweep across every inch of a source, in multiple operating conditions, to develop an in-depth understanding of the unit. This can lead to a very large amount of data to be processed.   Q. What specific noise measurements will it identify? A. The camera is designed to provide qualitative data, in the form of noise maps, rather than the quantitative data a sound meter would provide. Beamforming is a good way of finding the ‘hotspots’ over a large... read more

Hear What Some Of Our Customers Have To Say

“We have worked with Ventac for the past five years on noise control and product cost reduction projects. Ventac as a company have always been proactive and responsive to our needs, helping us with design and supply of noise attenuation projects and with more general development projects designed to reduce the noise levels and improve the noise quality of our products. They not only bring noise measurement and analysis skills, they also bring solutions.”

Alan Stewart

Technical Engineer, Nacco, Northern Ireland

I have very good relationships with all my contacts at Ventac. I know I can count on them to go the extra mile for Terex. Ventac are my company of choice for noise insulation.

Catherine Storrie

Buyer, Terex, UK

Ventac installed a substantial noise barrier on the Luas Green Line on behalf of the RPA. Ventac installed the barrier to RPA’s specifications in the constrained environment of an operating railway. The RPA were very happy with the quality of the work. Ventac’s communication was excellent and their team worked well with the Luas Operator, Veolia and it’s maintenance contractors to ensure that the project was completed to everyone’s satisfaction.
