Noise generation and suppression in twin screw compressors

Mujic, E., Kovacevic, A., Stosic, N. & Smith, I. K. (2011). Noise generation and suppression in twin screw compressors. Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part E: Journal of Process Mechanical Engineering, 225(2), pp. 127-148. doi: 10.1177/1464419311403875


Screw compressors generate a substantial level of noise during operation. The first stage in reducing it is to identify and minimise its causes. To this end, sources of noise within these machines have been reviewed, the most significant of which are identified, and methods of minimising their effect are evaluated.
