Industrial compressors, like all the machines, inevitably make some noise and their “level” depends above all on the size of the room in which they are located. In fact, noise is nothing more than the propagation of longitudinal waves that vary the pressure of the surrounding air, so the size of the environment is very important in its final perception. The noise level of an industrial compressor can be measured by appropriate machines, in a standard way. In addition to the size of the room that houses the compressors, the materials with which the room is built also affect the intensity of noise (materials used for the ceiling and walls for example), or the concomitant presence of other machines in the room, and/or the positioning of the compressor in the room and, eventually, the type of industrial compressors present on site.
There are several ways to reduce the noise of a compressor. Let’s see some of them together. The main methods can be summarized as: sound insulation, vibration isolation, sound absorption, vibration damping. As far as acoustic absorption, we can insert an acoustic barrier between the noise source and the receiver, thus isolating a single specific part or the whole machine with the aid of bonnets equipped with sound-absorbing materials. The vibration isolation of an industrial compressor, on the other hand, consists in the use of mechanical supports, springs, compensators, and anything else that allows the source of the vibrations to be absorbed.
Riem Italy, a leading company in the industrial compressors sector, also provides assistance for the best positioning of industrial compressors and is able to guarantee effective solutions to reduce the problem of noise and vibrations.
