The physics of sound, and the underlying math, can be challenging to grasp. For those of you that really need to immerse yourselves in the details, here is a nice little article that should suit your purpose.
For our purposes here, it's sufficient to note that while CHP has many benefits, being inherently quiet is not one of them. So unless your CHP project is located in the middle of nowhere, you may have to contend with managing its noise.
Here's a quick summary of common environmental noise measured in dBA (the "A" weighting takes into account that human hearing is more sensitive to certain frequencies):
Our default containerization attenuates sound to <65dBA@10m. Even this is pretty quiet--you could easily chat on your phone standing right next to the unit. However, there's a "Super-Silent" option that attenuates to <52dBA. This reduces sound by more than half (remember that the decibel scale is logarithmic).
Do you need to place the CHP unit right outside an executive conference room window? Sound attenuation options are available to accommodate that as well:
Please make an appointment to talk to us for more information, or assistance with any ongoing CHP or H2S Removal applications.
