What is a silent air compressor?

A silent air compressor is a compressor that has been specifically engineered to be low noise.  The design will feature noise-dampening properties that will help to reduce noise pollution and any other mechanical sound.

What’s the difference between silent, low noise, and ultra-quiet?

Different terminology is used to describe the amount of noise reduction different compressor technologies offer.  When selecting equipment, you should consider your application requirements and ensure the specification offers the most appropriate noise level for your intended use.  Noise is measured by decibel rating (dB); louder equipment will have a higher dB rating.


As a general guideline, the below measurements reflect different sound levels:


  • 40 dB is considered low noise.  Many small air compressors designed for domestic or light workshop jobs will be able to offer this.
  • 60 dB is considered the safest level of noise for compressors.
  • 85 dB and over can become dangerous to personnel and staff if exposed for long periods of time.

Why opt for a silent air compressor?

In many industries, the characteristic sound of machinery and rushing air is not feasible.  For those who regularly work in close proximity with compressor equipment, noisy compressor installations can pose a real issue.


The sound of moving air, churning mechanisms, and general industrial disruption, when exposed to for around eight hours a day, can be quite harmful.  For one, noisy compressor installations can interfere with communications and performance.  Staff may find it difficult to communicate or understand auditory signals.


This can have a negative effect on health and safety and put employees at risk.  Additionally, loud working environments can decrease morale, lead to a sense of isolation, and reduce the efficiency of your personnel.


Furthermore, loud compressors may affect your ability to position the equipment near point of use, which is critical for certain industries such as dental, garage, and workshop.  Especially noisy products may require you to implement acoustic barriers in your compressor room, requiring additional costs and installation fees.
