    Bingo. We built a box around our old compressor out of sheetrock and 2x4s, baffled at the top opening, with a bathroom fan on the side to help cool/feed it. Worked well but it was a pain to service the compressor and it still had overheating issues. So we put the new one out back and now it's not bothering anyone.

    We do the same thing, we just moved our big hd 10 hp air compressor to a back room, and run over head air lines inside as needed, and use a air intake muffler, and rubber base machine pads / feet, that all helps,

    I'll second the rotary compressor answer.

    Mine's running right now, ten feet from me in my tiny shop, and it just kind of hums. When the old reciprocating comp kicks in, it scares the Hell out of me!

    As an alternative, what others have said--move the comp elsewhere, sound insulate it. Sound insulation is different from thermal insulation--Google it. There is a lot of good advice out there.

    Can you build a small 'mechanical room' to house the noisy/hot/etc stuff? Otherwise you could get a quieter compressor and take steps to prevent vibration like bolting it to the ground over rubber anti-vibration pads.

    Our ingersoll-rand 2 stage (2340L5-V) is a lot queiter than we expected. I woudlnt want to sleep in a room with it but for a factory setting its really not bad. We put it in a small room because we were worried about noise but that may not have been necessary.

    Get a screw compressor, they are a lot less noisy than a piston compressor. Or move your current compressor as far away as you can. But piston compressors will always be really loud.

    Damn Noise!!!

    I was wondering if any one has had any success sound proofing their brewery? We have a compressor that deafens us all every morning when the kegs are being cleaned. Has anyone had any success sound proofing noisier bits of equipment.
