Noise Calculator

Sound levels in a plant or in a lab are often high enough to be distracting, and sometimes they are high enough to create health and safety concerns for workers in the immediate area.

We’ve published a noise level calculator on our website that will help you to judge the impact of selecting a particular piece of equipment on the total noise level.

VACUUBRAND’s pumps have been designed to run quieter than other vacuum pumps on the market.  Our pumps have typical sound level ratings in the range of 45-50 dBa – which is about as loud as normal conversation.  By reducing the sound rating of each piece of equipment in a plant or lab – even by just a few decibels – you can dramatically reduce the background sound level.  This lets people work more effectively, and do so in a safer environment.
