NoiseBreaker for the Oil/Petrochemical industry

The Emtec NoiseBreaker® is a personally moulded and vented earplug. It is a silicone rubber moulding which is tailor-made to each individual concha bowl and ear canal.  The NoiseBreaker can be comfortably worn in combination with other PPE including, for example, breathing apparatus, helmets and safety glasses.

Because of the perfect fit of the NoiseBreakers, they do not move even under strenuous activity – hence they provide laboratory levels of protection in any environment.

The NoiseBreakers are the environmental choice, as they are made of a medical grade silicone rubber – a derivative of silica, which has no adverse effect on the environment.

Also due to the permanent nature of the NoiseBreakers, they are not a disposable plug. Hence they eliminate waste that can ensue from disposable ear plugs.

Emtec has the experience and capability to supply directly to the oil and gas industry worldwide.

The NoiseBreaker

The fact that NoiseBreakers® are individually tailored has a number of advantages; namely they are comfortable and therefore achieve a high level of acceptance by the wearer, in contrast to the conventional disposable plugs and ear muffs. Also they allow the wearer to communicate easily, but at the same time afford excellent protection.

Attenuation Data

H 28
M 21
L 17
SNR 25.3

Due to the perfect fit of NoiseBreakers, they work in the real world as they do in the laboratory and therefore the Standard Deviation is minimal. Hence to get a true picture of the attenuation of NoiseBreakers, the Mean Attenuation at each frequency is the key number, rather than the SNR (Single Number Rating)

Attenuation details on NoiseBreakers tested at Salford University Department of Applied Acoustics EN352-2 Report No. HP/95/15.
