Choosing the best quiet air compressor for your process

If you’re looking to buy a quiet air compressor that is suited to your business, you may be considering a HPC KAESER. At Glaston, we are an authorised UK distributor of HPC KAESER compressors, and can create a bespoke compressed air package using a range of ultra-quiet air compressors and oil-free compressors that meet the demands of your business.

The benefits of a quiet air compressor

There are many benefits of using a quiet air compressor within your business. These include:

  • Creating a more comfortable working environment for your employees
  • Reducing the risk of health complications, such as tinnitus and other hearing-related problems, as a result of working in direct proximity to a compressed air system
  • Improving productivity levels on the shop floor – when noise is reduced, employees can concentrate and work more efficiently
  • Enabling easier communication between teams, without the distractions of excessive noise

How to choose the best quiet air compressor

Choosing the best quiet air compressor for your manufacturing or engineering business should take into account a number of factors. This includes the decibel (dB) level, the size of the tank and the PSI count. You should also consider the capacity of your business and what the weekly output should be, as this will impact the size and type of compressor you go for.

It is also worth considering a quiet oil-free compressor. Generally, a compressor that uses an oil lubricant will be quieter than its oil-free counterparts. But it is possible to find an oil-free compressor that has a low decibel level, which might be suitable for your process.

Lubricated air compressors do require regular maintenance, so if you want to keep this to a minimum, an oil-free compressor might be a better option for you. Our range of oil-free compressors provide exceptionally reliable compressed air, and have less maintenance costs than oil-injected compressors. They are also on the quiet side, with decibel ranges between 40 and 60 dB.

You can buy an ultra-quiet air compressor from our premises in Skelmersdale, near Preston, in the North West of England. We hold a sufficient amount of stock on-site, which means you never have to wait for repairs or maintenance work to be carried out on your compressor system.
