Abstract (Summary)
This dissertation examines acoustic research of a disinfecting dishwasher type Getinge 8666/8668. The research has been performed in collaboration with Getinge Desinfection AB, a world wide known manufacturer of disinfecting equipment for healthcare, located in Växjö, Sweden. We have examined how to reduce noise from the dishwasher with simple measures. Measurements have been performed during the drying program of the machine. The drying fans are the dominating sources of sound, and the sound is air bourn. A systematic method by reducing the sound step by step shows that the major ways of sound is through the ceiling and through the floor. There is also a minor noise leakage through the gaps in the walls of the dishwasher. By isolating the ceiling, the floor and the gaps in the walls, it is possible to reduce the noise with totally 5.9 dB. With more production adapted solutions, in shape of an isolated floor base and a more efficient fan cover, it is possible to reduce the noise with as much as 3.6 dB. This dissertation is thought to be used as a basis for further acoustic research at Getinge Desinfection AB.
