The challenges surrounding the piping industry are multi-faceted. One of the significant issues is proper guidance on sound insulation. While there are test methods and houses that can help engineers predict the required acoustic insulation, understanding the exact requirements for proper insulation can be challenging—one many engineers make retroactively on-site. Owens Corning is introducing new simulation software that helps predict the insulation requirements, and engineers can create predictive design models to reduce costs and improve installs. Doug Fast, technical leader for industrial mineral wool, and Kevin Herreman, a principal acoustic scientist from Owens Corning, discuss the challenge engineers face when designing piping systems and their acoustic insulation requirements.
