Must your new plant be too noisy?
It is estimated that noise control measures adopted at the design stage are 2 or 3 times less expensive than measures taken in existing plants. Methods of achieving acceptable noise levels in a crude oil unit are reviewed, typical design features are tabulated and means of checking and enforcing contractors' compliance with equipment specifications are proposed. The second part of the article deals with the protection of the community against plant noise.

Noise abatement in existing refineries
L'atténuation du bruit dans les raffineries déjà construites. [in French]
Translation of: Noise abatement in existing refineries. American Petroleum Institute, Washington, USA, 1970, Vol.50, p.125-146. Illus. 4 ref. Communication made to the 35th Annual Meeting of the Refinery Division of the American Petroleum Institute (13-15 May 1970, Houston, USA). The author describes the 4 successive stages of a noise abatement programme: establishment of noise limitation criteria; measurement of noise levels and comparison with the criteria; planning, construction and installation of noise abatement equipment; evaluation of results obtained and possible subsequent correction of procedures. Individual sources of noise (heaters, motors, coolers, compressors, machinery, etc.) and corresponding noise damping methods are tabulated. Another table indicates sources of noise and recommended abatement levels in a fluid-catalyser cracking plant. The results of measurements made before and after modification of the plant are given, illustrated by numerous diagrams.
