Acoustiblok, Inc. Combines Sound Abatement and Insulation Materials at Broward County Waste to Energy Plant to Reduce Industrial Noise Pollution
Date:6/12/2009

ated more than five stories, Acoustiblok's ease of installation, flexibility, effectiveness, and environmentally friendly properties and made it ideal for the job.

The South Broward WTE facility is owned by Wheelabrator Technologies, an OSHA-recognized and award-winning clean energy facilitator. With plants across the United States, Wheelabrator prides itself on its commitment to environmental responsibility, making it a natural match for eco-friendly Acoustiblok, which contains no lead, barium, or asbestos, is UV resistant, impervious to water and mold; and is UL fire rated and classified for wall, floor and ceiling installations as well as industrial applications. However, while solving the sound abatement issues, a new problem arose: the heat emitted from the compressed steam travelling through the bypass system reached temperatures as high as 350-degrees; Acoustiblok's standard application range is 200-degrees before viscosity is challenged.

After conferring with Thermablok Sales Professional Steve Hibbens, South Broward WTE Maintenance Manager Paul Benton chose to gird the system with a 5mm-thick layer of Thermablok(R) insulating material before applying the Acoustiblok; Thermablok adapts aerogel technology developed by NASA to create the highest insulating material in existence. Previously, aerogel had been difficult to adapt to most uses because of its fragility. Thermablok overcomes this by using a unique patented fiber to suspend a proprietary formula of aerogel so that it can be bent or compressed while still retaining its insulation properties.

Although this type of project had never been attempted before, both teams gambled successfully on the results of scientific studies performed on both Thermablok and Acoustiblok to determine the best solution to thwart the offending noise and deal with the associated heat issue.

Benton said that the need for noise abatement at the plant had been br
