Title Noise abatement in poultry slaughterhouses
Original title Abattage des volailles en sourdine [in French]
Bibliographic information Nov. 1997, No.566, p.25-32. Illus.
Abstract This article discusses the problem of noise in poultry slaughterhouses. Noise was long considered a secondary problem compared to issues raised by the strict regulations imposed by veterinary services. The article reports the experience of a manufacturer which was successful in reducing noise levels without compromising the bacteriological quality of the production unit, through the use of new materials with improved acoustic absorption properties for floors and walls, and by the isolation of equipment.
