Prevent Hearing Loss

The latest buzz (sic) of  TV commercials is for a drug to treat tinnitus which is a ringing in the ear. Tinnitus can be caused by various events one of which is loud noise. Pete Townshend of “The Who” rock band is an example how debilitating this condition can be. The band’s planned spring 2010 tour was ditched when Townshend’s tinnitus returned. 

Hearing conservation is serious business. OSHA has specific directives governing noise exposure (Standards -29 CFR) which persons in the workplace can be exposed to. When noise exposures average 85 dB or greater during an 8 hour workday, monitoring is required.

EXAIR has an economical  digital sound level meter   that can  help monitor the sound levels around your facility. The source of loud noises can be quickly identified and isolated so corrective measures can be taken to reduce or eliminate the problem. For compressed air noise, it is often as simple as replacing the existing inefficient blow-offs with EXAIR’s engineered compressed air products such as the super air knife, super air amplifier, or super air nozzles.
