SIST EN 14462:2015

EN 14462:2015 (E) 9 4 Determination of A-weighted emission sound pressure level at workstations and other specified positions 4.1 General A-weighted emission sound pressure levels LpA shall be determined according to one of the following basic standards: — EN ISO 11201 (grade 2) for machinery which can be tested in an essentially free field over a reflecting plane (e.g. outdoor test location or adequate test room); — EN ISO 11202 (grade 2 or grade 3) or EN ISO 11204 (grade 2 or grade 3), for machinery which cannot be tested in an essentially free field over a reflecting plane: — where ever possible, grade 2 methods shall be used; — if grade 3 methods are used, a justification shall be recorded and reported. NOTE For the purpose of reducing noise at source at the design stage, it is useful to determine emission sound pressure levels at workstations in frequency bands. These levels can be obtained using these basic standards. 4.2 Measurement positions If workstations are defined, the A-weighted emission sound pressure shall be determined at the workstations. Annex A specifies the measurement positions for particular surface treatment machines. If no workstation is defined, or Annex A does not specify measurement positions, the measurement positions shall be located on a path at 1,6 m above the floor and 1 m from the external surface of the machine. The location of these points and the sound pressure levels measured shall be indicated in the test report and in the noise declaration. The maximum distance between two consecutive points shall be 2 m. In this case, the highest value measured shall be taken as the A-weighted emission sound pressure level for the machine. The following additional requirements apply: — if the application of the provisions leads to measurement positions that are not practical and/or dangerous, closest positions that are practical and/or not dangerous shall be chosen. For a machine comprising several floors, individual measurement positions shall be defined on each floor; — for machines placed at a distance of less than 2 m from a boundary surface, there shall be no measurement positions on the side facing the boundary; — for installations consisting of several machines, individual measurement positions shall be defined — for any individual machine of the installation, if the distance to all neighbouring machines exceeds 2 m; — for parts of the installation, for which the distances between neighbouring machines do not exceed 2 m; — for the complete installation, if all distances between neighbouring machines do not exceed 2 m. Installations consisting of several machines shall always be considered as very large machines (see 5.2). See Annex C, Figure C.1 and Figure C.2, for examples of the arrangement of measurement positions. SIST EN 14462:2015

EN 14462:2015 (E) 10 5 Determination of A-weighted sound power level 5.1 General A-weighted sound power levels LWA shall be determined according to one of the following basic standards: — EN ISO 3744 (grade 2); — EN ISO 3746 (grade 3); — EN ISO 3747 (grade 2 and grade 3); — EN ISO 9614-2 (grades 2 and grade 3). Where ever possible, grade 2 methods shall be used. If grade 3 methods are used, a justification shall be recorded and reported. When EN ISO 3744 or EN ISO 3746 is used the measurement surface shall be the parallelepiped one. NOTE EN ISO 3744 (grade 2) or EN ISO 3746 (grade 3) are appropriate methods for many applications when machines can be measured outdoors or indoors in an adequate environment. In an approximately reverberant field EN ISO 3747 allows the determination of sound power levels with grade 2 by using a reference sound source (comparison method). In cases of extremely bad environmental conditions (reverberant field and/or high levels of extraneous noise) intensity methods according to EN ISO 9614-2 (scanning method) can be the only applicable method. 5.2 Measurement positions for very large machines For machines longer than 7 m, instead of the A-weighted sound power level, A-weighted emission sound pressure levels shall be determined at points located around the machine. NOTE Compared to the determination of sound power levels this procedure requires less time and effort. The measurement positions shall be located on a path at 1,6 m above the floor and 1 m from the external surface of the machine. The maximum distance between two consecutive points shall be 2 m. For machines longer than 6 m, in areas far from dominant sound sources the maximum distance between two consecutive points may be 2 m. The energy-average LpA of the emission sound pressure levels LpA at all measurement positions, shall be the characteristic value for the description of noise emission. The location of these points and the sound pressure levels measured shall be indicated in the test report and in the noise declaration. 6 Measurement uncertainties The total measurement uncertainty of the noise emission values determined according to this European Standard is depending on the standard deviation of reproducibility of the measurement 20Rσ given by the applied noise emission measurement method and the uncertainty associated with the instability of the operating and mounting conditions for the machine 2omcσ. The resulting total standard deviation totσ is then calculated as: SIST EN 14462:2015

EN 14462:2015 (E) 11 2220omcRtotσσσ+= The upper bound value of 0Rσ is about 1,5 dB for the grade 2 measurement methods dealing with the determination of the emission sound pressure level or the sound power level. NOTE 1 For more information on measurement uncertainty, see EN ISO 11201:2010, Clause 11 and Annex C, or EN ISO 3744:2010, Clause 9 and Annex H. NOTE 2 For machines with a rather constant noise emission, a value of 0,5 dB for omcσ can apply. In other cases, e.g. a large influence of the material flow into and out of the machine or material flow that varies in an unpredictable manner, it is possible that a value of 2 dB may be more appropriate. Methods to determine omcσ are described in the basic measurement standards. The expanded measurement uncertainty U, in decibels, shall be calculated with k = 2, the coverage factor, for two-sided normal distribution at confidence level of 95 %, from totkUσ⋅= NOTE 3 The expanded measurement uncertainty depends on the desired confidence level. For the purpose of comparing the result with a limit value, it is appropriate to apply the coverage factor for a one-sided normal distribution. In that case, the coverage factor k = 1,6 corresponds to a 95 % confidence level. Further information is given in EN ISO 4871. Note that the expanded measurement uncertainty U is denoted K in EN ISO 4871. NOTE 4 The expanded measurement uncertainty as described in this European Standard does not include the standard deviation of production which is used in EN ISO 4871 for the purpose of making a noise declaration for batches of machines. 7 Mounting conditions Machines shall be mounted in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Mounting instructions for applicators are given in Annex A. If no manufacturer’s mounting instructions are given, mounting conditions used shall be recorded and reported. NOTE In general, complex machines for surface treatment consisting of different components will only be mounted at the place of operation; thus, the mountings conditions are given. The mounting conditions shall be identical for the determination of both sound power level and emission sound pressure levels at specified positions, and for declaration purposes. 8 Operating conditions The test shall be carried out with — all sources of noise which are normally present when the machine is under operation (e.g. pump, fan, conveyor), — all noise reduction measures which are part of the machine. Annex A defines the operating conditions for specific machinery. SIST EN 14462:2015

EN 14462:2015 (E) 12 If operating conditions defined in Annex A cannot be used, the reason shall be given and the conditions used shall be recorded, reported and declared. Measurement shall cover the normal work cycle. The work cycle used for the test shall be described precisely in the test report. For multi-purpose machines, the operating condition with the highest noise emission shall be chosen. Idling periods that are not compulsory for the operation condition chosen shall not be included into the test. Operating conditions shall be identical for determination and declaration of A-weighted sound power level and A-weighted emission sound pressure level. NOTE Noise emission depends on the operation mode of the machine. The specification of operating conditions allows noise emission data to be compared. 9 Information to be recorded The information to be recorded during the test shall include all the information required by the relevant basic noise emission standards used for the machine under test: — acoustic environment, — instrumentation, — acoustic data. Any deviation(s) from this noise test code or from the basic standard(s) used, shall be recorded together with the technical justification for such deviation(s). 10 Information to be reported The information to be provided in the test report shall at least include the information necessary for declaration and verification of noise emission values. The required information is given in the basic standards used, i.e.: a) machine 1) type, 2) classification and technical data, 3) dimensions, 4) manufacturer, 5) serial number and year of manufacture, b) mounting and operating conditions relevant to noise emission during the test (see Clause 4 and Clause 5 and Annex A), c) basic standard(s) applied for the determination of noise emission (see Clause 4 and Clause 5), giving, where applicable, reasons for not using grade 2 methods, SIST EN 14462:2015

EN 14462:2015 (E) 13 d) acoustic data 1) A-weighted emission sound pressure level at workstations (LpA), 2) if required, A-weighted sound power level (LWA) or average A-weighted emission sound pressure level (LpA), NOTE Individual A-weighted emission sound pressure levels measured on large machines can be supplied as additional information. e) Organisational test data 1) place; 2) date; 3) responsible person. Any deviation(s) from this noise test code or from the basic standard(s) used, are to be recorded together with the technical justification for the deviation(s). 11 Declaration and verification of noise emission values The noise declaration shall be made as dual-number noise emission value(s) according to EN ISO 4871. The following values shall be declared in the instructions for use, and in the technical sales literature if any. — A-weighted emission sound pressure level at workstations, where this exceeds 70 dB (A); where this level does not exceed 70 dB (A), this fact shall be indicated. — If there is no work station the highest value of the A-weighted emission sound pressure level on a measurement path (see 4.2) and the position of the corresponding measurement position. — A-weighted sound power level emitted by the machinery where the A-weighted emission sound pressure level at least one workstation or specified measurement position exceeds 80 dB (A). — In the case of very large machines, instead of the sound power level, the A-weighted average emission sound pressure level.
