soundproofing milking machine vacuum pump
« on: June 23, 2008, 04:46:45 PM »
We have been asked to reduce the noise emissions from our milking machine following complaints from a neighbour. We have reduced the running speed of the pump and it has a basic silencer fitted. It is housed in a concrete block built alcove 1.8 m x 0.8m with an open front. We want to enclose the front with an insulated door and possibly line the walls and roof with some form of sound deadening material. Looking for a cost effective solution, any suggestions welcome.Thanks.
