This paper shows the practicality of the systems approach to noise reduction in the foundry industry. The necessity for both the theoretical and practical aspects of noise control that will be totally compatible with a plant operation is demonstrated. Descriptive information regarding typical noise centers in the foundry industry is discussed. These general areas are: molding areas, melting process areas, melting process areas, cope and drag handling shakeout vibratory conveying areas, finishing areas, ventilation and dust handling equipment areas and metal- to-metal contact locations. The sequential measuring methods are covered emphasizing the data needed to achieve a total as well as practical solution to the required noise abatement for the particular facility being studied.
