Vane Compressors Installation and Retro-Fit Intake Silencers

A pair of air compressors installed in a plant room were generating noise levels well above the specified 80dB(A). We discussed the installation with the contractor, who then took some basic noise measurements plus photographs and smartphone recordings which were forwarded by email. As we have extensive experience of these types of compressor, we could use our noise control database as the basis for developing the solutions.

We designed retro-fit silencers and wall treatment, returned the recommendations and solved the problem by reducing the noise to well within the purchasing specification within a few days. The whole project cost less than a single site visit…
