Title Noise produced by gas receiving stations in power plants - possibilities of noise reduction
Original title Erőművi gázfogadó állomások zaja, a zajcsökkentés lehetőségei [in Hungarian]
Bibliographic information 1983, Vol.29, No.1-3, p.9-15. Illus. 8 ref.
Abstract Derivation of mathematical equations to analyse the noise produced by pressure reducing valves in piping carrying natural gas into power plants. The noise, which reaches 140dB, is not only uncomfortable for both the workers in the power plant and the people living nearby but also exceeds legal noise limits. The measured noise reduction achieved by the use of different kinds of valves and by the use of sound insulation of the piping in a specific gas receiving station is discussed.
