Abstract
Noise evaluation in 6 spinning and 5 weaving departments of 3 textile mills in Egypt, where a total of 266 ring spinning frames and 1,612 looms of different types and of old and new design are in use. Spindle speed (rpm) and loom speed (picks per minute) were found to be important parameters affecting the noise level. To decrease the noise below the recommended limit level of 85 decibels, it is proposed to limit the number of spindles to 5 per square meter and the total spindle speed to 25,000 rpm per square meter (or less). In weaving operations, an increase in floor area or a decrease in the number of looms will not effectively reduce the noise level.
