Hushpak Engineering specialises in noise control for the mining, manufacturing and construction industries. We design and manufacture bespoke noise attenuation solutions, with particular experience in source attenuation of mobile machinery and enclosures for noisy industrial operations. As the leader of turnkey acoustic solutions, we reduce unwanted noise to achieve compliance. We are committed to providing effective noise control solutions without compromising the performance, operation or maintainability of the equipment. With 20 years’ experience…. we are the quiet achievers.
At Hushpak, we know that complying with workplace noise requirements can be challenging, especially in facilities where equipment generates high intensity noise. We work closely with customers to monitor, analyse and define their noise problem, and assess and evaluate options to ensure we achieve the greatest noise reduction.
We help customers implement noise-control strategies. First, we interrogate a noisy environment to understand the problem and underlying issues. Then we manage the design, manufacture and installation of noise control solutions to ensure project milestones are achieved. Our comprehensive services also include product selection, budgeting, tender submission and project planning. Finally, we implement the most effective solution, considering other factors such as ventilation, maintenance and safe access to ensure we don’t compromise operations or impact the health and safety of workers.
We conduct noise modelling, assessment of machinery sound power levels, noise source measurement, sound intensity and fast fourier transform (FFT) frequency analysis. We follow International Standards for dynamic and stationery test conditions when evaluating noise impacts of earth-moving machinery.
Our knowledge of noise propagation, acoustic monitoring, vehicle operating scenarios and mining, together with our technical expertise and engineering analysis, enables us to solve your noise or compliance problem at the source. We know off the shelf products aren’t always effective, can impact performance and incur additional installation costs, so we customise and purpose-build solutions, manufacture replacement parts and can recondition equipment to achieve the best noise suppression for your situation.
Source Attenuation – Hushpak design and manufacture sound attenuation kits including exhausts, muffler systems, acoustic louvres and fans. We also have dozer attenuation kits, including idler-wheel treatment and grouser dampers, that reduce undercarriage noise by up to 6 dBA.
Acoustic Barriers – Hushpak custom design solutions that attenuate or absorb sound and vibration caused by conveyor systems, equipment, processes or machinery. Our patented acoustic cladding (HushClad) and fencing (HushPanel) products are manufactured by Colorbond steel. With STC 28, they provide superior noise reduction for industry and traffic noise.
We know how noisy some equipment or plant can be, and how sensitive the noise problem can be to a workplace or community. We have experience in design, redesign, supply and manufacture of noise attenuation systems to ensure compliance. Our extensive knowledge and experience includes measuring, assessing, understanding and predicting noise levels and conducting occupational noise analysis.
Design and Manufacture
Our strong R&D focus ensures we keep abreast of new sound proofing products and acoustic materials. We comply with International Standards and use the latest software, acoustic cameras and equipment to conduct noise assessments. Our strict quality control procedures ensures high quality products are designed and manufactured in our Newcastle facility.
