Quieting an air compressor

The most effective way to reduce the amount of noise that your facility is producing is to use silencers. We happen to be a company that designs and supplies these products. You can even find an intake silencer here if you require one. All you need to do is tell us what your requirements are and then we will create the right model for you.

The majority of air compressors have something in common; they are loud and noisy. The higher the power, the more sound they tend to produce. To some, the simplest answer would be to go and purchase a quieter model. However, this can be very costly. Luckily we can offer a less expensive solution.

Use an intake silencer

The majority of the high frequency sound produced by the compressors originates from the air intake. The compressor rotates and inrushing air flows past a flapper valve or reed. As a result, it vibrates and rattles on every pulse. By introducing a silencer, you can limit the pulsating sound from the air intake system.

In an intake silencer, the air gets baffled via sound deadening substances or tubes. This diminishes the noise. At the same time, they keep the air intake flow restriction of the compressor to a minimum.

Another step

Something else you will want to do is isolate your compressor from everything else. The last thing you need is rigid connections that are able to radiate sound. You might own a motionless air compressor. If so, anchor it to the floor using rubber isolation mounts. If you make use of rigid plumbing, place a tiny adaptable air hose between it and the compressor.

At Ventx, we go the extra mile to make certain that our silencers fit into your facility perfectly. This is possible thanks to our advanced acoustic modelling software. We also prioritise customer service and ensure that everyone is happy.
