Noise reduction when Buffing




Buffing Sound Reduction

We are trying to develop ways to reduce the db exposure to employees while buffing steel tubing. We have identified several room treatments that would reduce backround noise but none of them resolve the exposure level that an employee experiences when actually pressing the part to the wheel. Our noise level typically runs between 95 and 100 db. Would welcome any implemented methods that help try to resolve this issue.Look forward to hearing from you.

Good earmuffs are probably the cheapest and convenient safety measure. Based on machining, try filling both ends of the tube with foam rubber. Cuts down on some of the vibrations and kills the sounding board effect or drum effect. Cheap and easy to try.
