Vermeer Surface Excavation Machine
Vermeer Corporation has asked Sorama to support Engineering in substantially reducing noise levels of the Vermeer T1255 Surface Excavation Machine while in operation.
The Sorama CAM1K Acoustic Camera was used both for Far Field measurements as well as for close distance Near Field scanning measurements.
The visualization of noise at specific dominant frequencies provided great insight.
Already after the first ‘measurement & analysis’ phase, the resulting clear-cut recommendations of Sorama were successfully implemented to realize the dB-reduction objectives.
Consequently, our customer and a community close to a large open-pit mine in Switzerland, were very satisfied with the realized outcome.
