Compressor Prime Movers

By 23 August 2014

Industrial installations normally have an electric motor to drive the compressor. Noise may be generated by the cooling fan or from the motor windings. The cooling air will come from inside the enclosure and probably share the same airflow as required for the compressor. Silencing an internal combustion engine is a study in itself, but the same type of enclosure as described for the compressor would apply here also.
