Title Case history: Shuttle loom noise control at the source: Principle and practice
Bibliographic information May-June 1989, Vol.32, No.3, p.111-117. Illus. 6 ref.
Abstract This paper introduces the principles and applications of reducing the general A-weighted sound level in shuttle loom shops. Identification of noise sources indicated that over 95% of the sound power comes from impact noise produced by picking and checking. Four measures were adopted to control the noise and ten components were improved. As a result, the A-weighted sound level of one loom was reduced from 95dB to 85dB and the electric power consumption decreased by 5%. These measures and improvements are now widely used in China.
