Noise Reduction at MacLean Curtis

In an effort to reduce the noise level in the plant, the maintenance team lined the inside of the scrap hopper with 2 ply 22-3/16 inch x 1/16 inch Hot Asphalt SOR. This improvement reduced the noise level by approximately 5 decibels. The team also replaced the hopper with a smaller, lower hopper making the dumping a much easier and safer effort.
