What makes a quiet air compressor quiet?

<< < (5/8) > >>

Here you will find an excerpt of the Jun-Air compressors technical manual with component lists and exploded views.
Maybe it can be of some help on how they did to reduce compressor noise.

noise comparison:

Those compressors are probably pretty quiet but their price reflects that and more. I think they're mostly marketed towards dental and medical offices where they need reliable quiet clean air supplies and price isn't this so much of an issue. You could probably buy 5 or 10 poor quality compressors that would cost less than one Jun compressor of a similar capacity.

They're just modified refrigeration compressors, you could build one yourself without great difficulty. The tradeoff is they are much smaller capacity than a typical shop compressor.

Any compressor can be made quiet, by using an acoustic cover over it!

The is still a relatively tricky part as compressors produce quite a lot of waste heat. In a first approximation this is as much as the electricity taken from the grid - possibly even a little more.
An acoustic cover for the relatively low frequencies that can still pass enough air to get rid of the heat is quite challenging.
