Mujic, E., Stosic, N., Kovacevic, A. & Smith, I. K. (2016). Noise Control by Suppression of Gas Pulsation in Screw Compressors. In: Ahmed, N. (Ed.), Advances in Noise Analysis, Mitigation and Control. . InTech. doi: 10.5772/64795


The various sources of noise in screw compressors have been determined, the most significant of which are gas pulsations and these have been analysed extensively in this chapter. The parameters most affecting them have been identified and different simulation tools have been used to quantify their effect, together with a brief over‐view of the capabilities of each of them. Resulting from these studies, methods of reducing the pulsations were identified and the improvements resulting from them were predicted. Tests were then carried out on an industrial screw compressor and good agreement was obtained between the predicted and measured levels of noise reduction.
