ISO 20361:2007 specifies all the information necessary to carry out efficiently and under standardized conditions the determination, declaration and verification of the airborne noise emission of liquid pumps or pump units. It specifies the noise measurement methods and the operating and mounting conditions that shall be used for the test.
The use of ISO 20361:2007 ensures the reproducibility of the determination of the airborne noise-emission characteristics within specified limits determined by the grade of accuracy of the basic airborne noise measurement method used. Noise measurement methods according to ISO 20361:2006 are engineering methods (grade 2) and survey methods (grade 3).
ISO 20361:2007 does not deal with the characterization of the structure-borne sound and liquid-borne noise generated by liquid pumps.
