Materials for Power Generation

Noise Control & Vibration Isolation Applications

Noise Control andVibration Isolation Applications

Polymer Technologies continues to lead the industry in noise control and vibration isolation material solutions for power generation equipment. We have UL2200 recognized acoustic materials to meet industry regulatory and commercial requirements of power generation manufacturers. We provide a variety of solutions, one of which is for units used in sizes from 2.5 kW to 2 mW.  Additionally, Polymer has been working with companies in alternative sectors such as wind turbines and battery powered devices.

Finding the Right Solutions for Engine Enclosures

Vibration Damping Materials

Considerations Polymer takes into account when selecting isolation materials for enclosure enclosures include the mass of the enclosure and the spectrum of noise sources. Critical to any design are the amount of the open area, the intake and exhaust, and line of sight elimination. The more open area in an enclosure, the less effective the barrier and damping materials will be, and the more challenging it will be to gain significant noise attenuation.

All of these factors play a role in enclosure material design and determine whether POLYDAMP® acoustical foam, barrier composites, or vibration damping material are most appropriate. Polymer's noise control experts can work with your engineers on site in a collaborative effort to determine which products would best serve your needs for power generation.

Noise Absorption for Doors, Service Hatches, and Plenums

Noise Control Material

Polymer Technologies designs absorptive and barrier materials that help eliminate line of sight through plenums and louvers. Materials need to be designed to help eliminate acoustical weak spots in doors and hatches.  Gaskets are used for proper sealing to ensure there are no leaks or gaps that will allow noise to escape.

When creating a design for the enclosure itself, enclosure panel weight plays a critical role in determining whether you should use an absorber and barrier composite or just an absorber.  Polymer works with customers to choose the proper power generation material solution based on the design’s noise reduction goals.

Isolation Mounts for Generators

Isolation Mounts for Generators

Polymer Technologies a range of elastomeric solutions manufactured by our Elastomeric Solutions Division (ESD) hat develops elastomeric vibration isolators with a variety of applications. ESD specializes in custom shock and isolation solutions and has become Polymer’s Elastomeric Solutions Division. Isolation mounts developed by the Elastomeric Solutions Division are ideal for power generation. By absorbing shock and vibration, these products can reduce the loud noise created by generators.
