Implementing silent technology control
Sound insulation of control cabinets and housings
Control cabinets which are used in big companies and producing enterprises as well as in industrial companies with technical palnts and machines, are often significant sources of noise. By the use of ventilators and cooling systems the noise level strongly increases without an appropriate sound insulation of the control cabinet. aixFOAM offers strong acoustic solutions to get this disturbing noise under control.

Control cabinets, which are used in large firms and production companies as well as industrial companies with technical factories and machines, often prove to be a substantial source of noise. Without adequate control of the cabinet insulation, the noise level will rise constantly, due to the increased use of exhausts and cooling systems. Frequently, even the maximum permissible limit values are exceeded.

Here's how to increase the sound protection in control cabinets

Optimal results in sound protection for control cabinets and in control cabinet soundproofing can be achieved, if lining the housings with insulation panels is already considered during control cabinet planning and the following control cabine insulation and implemented in the sound protection plan for control cabinets. For housing manufacturers, the employment of modern CNC manufacturing processes makes it possible to create aixFOAM sound absorbers in almost any shape. This facilitates flexible possibilities to initially equip the housings during control cabinet construction.

The control cabinet can also be insulated subsequently. Both active and passive measures can be taken during subsequent control cabinet sound insulation. The simplest means of implementation is to reduce the fans to the actual requirement. If this step is not sufficient, lining the accessible construction units with sound insulation board offers a relatively economical possibility for control cabinet dampening, particularly to reduce middle and high frequencies.

Here it is particularly crucial to select an absorber with which the cabinet inner surfaces can be equipped without function restrictions. Smooth aixFOAM absorption foam with felt lamination is outstanding for sound insulation in the control cabinet. This offers ideal absorption properties combined with appropriate dust protection. For vibration-susceptible control cabinets, a lower surface lamination with aixFOAM acoustic heavy foil is also recommended, to provide appropriate housing insulation. Both products can be simply attached inside the control cabinet, due to a self-adhesive layer, to improve noise control in the control cabinet.

Sound insulation in industrial casing

Industrial control cabinets tend to vibrate independently, due to their size and the large-surfaced plastic or sheet metal housings surrounding them. In order to avoid these vibrations, the dimensions of the sheet metal, metal and/or plastic parts must be increased. aixFOAM antinoise panels have worked particularly well for this purpose. These are convincing due to their high density, good flexibility and easy handling. They change the natural frequencies of the materials used, thereby preventing vibrations.

Consider fireproofing when insulating the housing.

In the control cabinet, fire proofing is a must. With high packaging densities, the danger for overheating or a short-circuit is always a given, and the risk of fire should not be underestimated. Therefore, every control cabinet casing manufacturers and control enclosures manufacturers and anyone wanting to subsequently quiet the casing with insulation casing insulation board is urgently advised to use aixFOAM sound absorbers of the highest fire protection class. The fire classes DIN 4102 B1 or DIN4102 B2 can be easily achieved with aixFOAM products.
