MS Noise Vacuum Pump Enclosure
MS Noise Vacuum Pump Enclosure

Envirosafe Ireland provide Noise Reduction Enclosures to reduce the noise generated by any kind of loud equipment in laboratories. Noise enclosures in laboratories are a relatively new idea, and often, people don’t immediately realise the advantages of a quieter working environment.

Noise in the lab is distracting, tiring, irritating and stressful. But many people are unaware of the presence of environmental sound at damaging levels, or at the level on which sound becomes harmful. Noise damage is cumulative : all sources of damages must be considered to assess risk.

Noise does not only cause hearing impairment (at long-term exposures of over 85 (dBA) – similar to sitting next to a gas lawn mower running all day), but it also acts as a causal factor for stress, hypertension, ischemic heart disease, annoyance and sleep disturbance. Additionally, it can be a causal factor in work accidents, both by masking hazards and warning signals, and by impeding concentration. Noise also acts synergistically with other hazards to increase the risk of harm to workers. In particular, noise and dangerous substances (e.g. some solvents) that have some tendencies towards ototoxicity may give rise to rapid ear damage.

These enclosures provide noise reduction performance from – 15 db(A) to – 20 db(A) for ultrasonic baths.

Performance is about 75% reduction in noise perception.


Noise Reduction Enclosures are available for :

  • Vacuum pumps
  • Water chillers
  • Water coolers
  • Ultrasonic bath
  • Compressors
  • Nitrogen generators


These enclosures reduce noise to an acceptable, safe and comfortable level for people who work around traditionally loud equipment.

For example, our range of enclosures provides noise reduction performance from – 15 db(A) up to – 20 db(A). These enclosures allow up to 75% reduction in noise perception!
