Booster Pump Fan Sound Enclosure

A municipality had recently installed a booster pump facility near a residential area. They were concerned about complains from nearby residents about the noise generated by the pumps, generator, and fan. The pumps and generator were located in the booster pump building, but the fan was located outside. The engineer on the project called eNoise Control to discuss his options.

eNoise Control recommended a four-sided enclosure system with a roof. The enclosure would be constructed of metal acoustical panels. The steel panels are 4″ thick with 16-gage solid galvanized steel, type G90 exterior shell, and 22-gage perforated galvanized steel interior shell. They are connected together with a tongue and groove connection and held together rigidly with self-drilling sheet metal screws. Panels include a sound absorbing material that is inert, mildew resistant, vermin proof, and incombustible.

The outer dimensions of the steel sound enclosure for this client were 60″ W x 60″ L x 60″ H.

Accessory Items and Features Included in Package:

  • Two 48″ W x 48″ double leaf access doors with heavy duty hinges, hardware, and acoustic seals
  • Trim and fasteners
  • Factory cut opening, supplied with flat flashing to seal around duct penetration
  • Two acoustical louvers 12″ x 24″ x 6″ thick rated at 600 CFM each
