A soundproofing semi-enclosure was built around the machine

Megasorber engineers worked closely with the customer to develop a cost-effective soundproofing solution.

Noise Reduction Results

See our Understanding Noise Levels page to better understand these decibel levels and how significant a 13 dB(A) noise reduction is.


Prior to installing the Megasorber product, our machine produced a significant amount of noise that carried to the office environment that, at its worst, made talking on the phone very difficult.  In the factory it was difficult to communicate verbally without yelling.

Once our enclosure was built using the Megasorber products, the machine became a moderate background noise only and does not interfere in either of the two environments it previously disrupted.

We considered further sound reducing techniques such as adding a noise barrier roller door to the front opening, however, with the significant reduction of sound emanating from the area it was assessed as unnecessary.

I would recommend the Megasorber system to anyone needing to limit loud and dangerous noise.
