Noise Reduction

Production units and mining sites are both environments that can be noisy to operate in. For this reason, Sandvik Mining is taking steps to help reduce noise levels which may be created either within our workshops or by our equipment.

A number of initiatives to help reduce noise emissions have been created, including the development of quieter operator cabins on drill rigs, a new dust extractor for the MB670 Bolter Miner and the Wear Protection and Screening Media workshop being fitted with sound damping wall panels.

These advancements amongst others have all helped to improve the environment that our employees and customers work in and as a result they are now exposed to lower levels of noise.
