Wakefield Acoustics

Noise Control Solutions for Water Treatment Facilities


Wakefield Acoustics provides advanced industrial and environmental noise control systems to the water and wastewater industry.

Modern environmental noise solutions for water treatment plants

Water treatment processes are often driven by noisy equipment such as pumps, compressors, blowers, centrifuges, fans and extensive pipework systems. Such equipment, often in close proximity to a wastewater treatment plant regularly operates 24/7 and is usually close to urban and residential areas. This gives the potential for both noise at work and environmental noise control challenges.

Wakefield Acoustics has a vast amount of experience in providing noise control solutions for processes such as odour control, aeration, sludge treatment and processing, ventilation systems and desalination systems.

The company is experienced in treating noise problems within wastewater installations, while also understanding the importance of easy installation and the requirements of operational functionality, access and maintenance associated with key equipment.

Custom-designed acoustic enclosures

Wakefield Acoustics' range of custom designed acoustic enclosures are available in various construction types, including heavy-duty construction, modular panel-to-panel construction incorporating quick release catches for simplified maintenance, bolted-in framework, one piece lift-over units, and weatherproofing options.

Access and maintenance can be accommodated through a wide range of acoustic doors and windows, along with access panels and the capability for one piece lift off roof sections where full access is required.

A wide range of finishes, such as pre-galvanised steel, 304 / 316 stainless steel, powder coating, wet painting, and plastisol finishes accordant to WIMES (Water Industry Mechanical and Electrical Specifications) 4.01 are also available.

Other features that can be incorporated include noise-attenuated enclosure ventilation, lighting, and internal heaters for frost protection.

Steel and PVC noise control equipment

Wakefield Acoustics also designs, manufactures and installs a wide range of other noise control equipment, including:

  • Acoustic screens
  • Rectangular and circular attenuators
  • Inlet and combined inlet silencers for aeration blowers
  • Fully welded discharge silencers to reduce pipe breakout noise
  • Blow-off silencers
  • Acoustic louvres for natural or forced ventilation systems

These can be manufactured in a range of materials, including pre-galvanised sheet steel, stainless steel and PVC.
