Fan noise is by far the main cause of environmental noise complaints from residents living near industrial sites. This guide explains why this is the case, the main types of fan, how the noise is generated, and the optimum approach to finding solutions to fan noise problems.

A common and costly mistake when assessing fan noise problems is to not diagnose the precise contributions from broadband and tonal noise features to the issue. Just how common a mistake is highlighted by the fact that 95% of consultant noise reports are inadequate, a major cause of which is poor (or no) diagnosis.

The guide provides an accessible, detailed explanation of the types of fans and their noise characteristics to aid with defining and solving fan noise problems.
