One of the easiest ways to quiet the noise from your air compressor is to keep it at a distance from a worksite. The distance alone could reduce the noise by as much as 25%. Noise can be reduced even further if your air compressor is in a different room and using extension hoses you are able to close a door, even partially. Even simply putting the air compressor across the room from where you are working can make a difference.
The most effective way to reduce the noise of a smaller, home-use air compressor is to house it in a soundproof enclosure while being used. Constructing a soundproof enclosure can be easily made, given the right materials and foam insulation. As an example, a portable air compressor can be housed in a handmade box, constructed from fiberboard and convoluted foam board.
While the most effective sound reduction technique is a soundproof enclosure, sound blankets are also an effective form. Sound blankets placed within an area of an air compressor can muffle the noise absorbing the high and mid-range frequencies. Sound blankets have become popular anti-noise techniques for recording studios, and areas where noise is amplified by its surroundings.
One use of sound blankets is to place the air compressor into a corner with a 2-sided enclosure with sound blankets. It makes use of the walls and the enclosure to help reduce noise and is useful for portable and stationary air compressors.
Another way to use sound blankets is to place the air compressor inside a box or large cabinet and drape on the blankets over the outside.
Our TS, EG and EN series are amongst the most quite air compressors in the industry.
