Noise Control

Postby Travis Porter » Tue, Oct 28 2014, 9:28AM

Quick question regarding making the workplace a little more sound sensible. Is it possible to place the vacuum pump for the machine outside? By outside I mean totally sheltered from the elements but with no temperature and humidity control. We have a Model 43, 3 axis router that we are about to relocate to a new spot in the shop here shortly.

**The router will be indoors, pump will be outside.

Travis, what vaccuum pump do you have? If it is a Becker pump, they make sound enclosures.

I built a pump/mechanical room in the corner that contains my electrical panels. The radiator on my 40hp Travaini is against an outside wall so it pulls from outside. The room is vented back out at the top. We piped outside from the centrifuge also. All of this is in an insulated room with a door placed to where I can turn the pump and pull it out if need be. If your in a really cold climate you will want to put a small heater in the room to make start up easier.
