Note: Text based on automatic Optical Character Recognition processes. Please use the PDF version for legal matters

What is claimed is:

Claim 1. An air-core dry-type reactor, comprising:

a reactor build including a coil and a first spider coupled to the coil, the first spider having a plurality of arms radiating from a central hub, the plurality of arms having free ends each of which having a hook like notch, the reactor build having an outermost surface; and

a noise attenuating barrier positioned radially outward from the outermost surface of the reactor build,

wherein the noise attenuating barrier is held in place using epoxy-impregnated fiberglass ties which are wrapped around the hook like notch, the noise attenuating barrier having an innermost surface,

wherein no portion of the outermost surface of the reactor build directly contacts the innermost surface of the noise attenuating barrier limiting structure-borne sound transmission from the reactor build to the noise attenuating barrier, and

wherein the noise attenuating barrier comprises a plurality of sound absorbing panels each including a plurality of layers, the plurality of layers includes a layer of sound absorbing material on a side closer to the reactor build and a layer of sound barrier material on a side farther from the reactor build.

Claim 2. The air-core dry-type reactor of claim 1, wherein the plurality of sound absorbing panels having a top surface and a bottom surface such that the top and bottom surfaces of the plurality of sound absorbing panels include a polyester-glass mat composite channel which offers protection from environment to the layer of sound absorbing material.

Claim 3. The air-core dry -type reactor claim 2, wherein the polyester-glass mat composite channel on the bottom surface contains a plurality of drain holes to allow moisture to weep.

Claim 4. The air-core dry -type reactor of claim 1, wherein an open layer of epoxy-impregnated fiberglass is positioned against the noise attenuating barrier facing the reactor build.

Claim 5. The air-core dry-type reactor of claim 4, wherein the open layer of epoxy-impregnated fiberglass is held in place using the epoxy-impregnated fiberglass ties which are wrapped around the hook like notch located on the first spider and a second spider.

Claim 6. The air-core dry-type reactor of claim 1, wherein a closed layer of epoxy-impregnated fiberglass is positioned against an outer layer of the noise attenuating barrier.

Claim 7. The air-core dry-type reactor of claim 6, wherein the closed layer of epoxy-impregnated fiberglass is held in place using the epoxy-impregnated fiberglass ties which are wrapped around the hook like notch located on the first spider and a second spider.

Claim 8. The air-core dry -type reactor of claim 1, wherein a noise attenuating barrier assembly including the noise attenuating barrier, an open layer of epoxy-impregnated fiberglass and a closed layer of epoxy-impregnated fiberglass forms a closed cylindrical shape positioned radially outward from the outermost surface of the reactor build.

Claim 9. The air-core dry-type reactor of claim 1, wherein the epoxy-impregnated fiberglass ties are the only elements of the noise attenuation barrier that make a physical contact with the first spider and a second spider.

Claim 10. The air-core dry -type reactor of claim 1, wherein a radial separation between the reactor build and the noise attenuating barrier is determined based on a relative frequency range that requires the greatest noise mitigation or the radial separation is optimized to provide the greatest noise reduction of a particular frequency.

Claim 11. The air-core dry-type reactor of claim 1, wherein a gap between the reactor build and the noise attenuating barrier increases noise attenuation in relatively lower frequency ranges.

Claim 12. A kit for a noise mitigating sound shield, the kit comprising:

an assembly configured for attachment to an air-core dry-type reactor,

wherein the assembly is configured for forming a closed cylinder positioned radially outward from an outermost surface of a reactor build,

wherein the assembly including a noise attenuating barrier having an innermost surface, and

wherein no portion of the outermost surface of the reactor build directly contacts the innermost surface of the noise attenuating barrier limiting structure-borne sound transmission from the reactor build to the noise attenuating barrier.

Claim 13. The kit of claim 12, wherein the noise attenuating barrier comprises a plurality of sound absorbing panels each including a plurality of layers, the plurality of layers includes a layer of sound absorbing material on a side closer to the reactor build and a layer of sound barrier material on a side farther from the reactor build.

Claim 14. The kit of claim 13, wherein the plurality of sound absorbing panels having a top surface and a bottom surface such that the top and bottom surfaces of the sound absorbing panels include a polyester-glass mat composite channel which offers protection from environment to the layer of dense sound absorbing material.

Claim 15. The kit of claim 12, wherein the noise attenuating barrier is held in place using epoxy- impregnated fiberglass ties which are wrapped around a hook like notch.

Claim 16. The kit of claim 12, wherein the noise attenuating barrier is installed against an open layer of epoxy-impregnated fiberglass.

Claim 17. The kit of claim 16, wherein the noise attenuating barrier is wrapped with a closed layer of epoxy-impregnated fiberglass.

Claim 18. A method of mitigating noise from an air-core dry -type reactor with a sound shield, the method comprising:

providing an assembly configured for attachment to the air-core dry -type reactor; and forming from the assembly a closed cylinder positioned radially outward from an outermost surface of a reactor build,

wherein the assembly including a noise attenuating barrier having an innermost surface, and

wherein no portion of the outermost surface of the reactor build directly contacts the innermost surface of the noise attenuating barrier limiting structure-borne sound transmission from the reactor build to the noise attenuating barrier.

Claim 19. The method of claim 18, further comprising:

providing a plurality of sound absorbing panels for the noise attenuating barrier wherein each of the plurality of sound absorbing panels including a plurality of layers, the plurality of layers includes a layer of sound absorbing material on a side closer to the reactor build and a layer of sound barrier material on a side farther from the reactor build.

Claim 20. The method of claim 19, wherein the plurality of sound absorbing panels having a top surface and a bottom surface such that the top and bottom surfaces of the sound absorbing panels include a polyester-glass mat composite channel which offers protection from environment to the layer of dense sound absorbing material.
