Hydraulic services and systems that run without making a lot of noise don’t just miraculously happen. Rather, they’re the result of well-planned and executed installation strategies. While noise can’t be entirely eliminated, a number of techniques exist to at least bring the noise down to an acceptable level.
The issue is that noise reduction in hydraulic services is a difficult and complex subject. Investing a great deal of time, money and effort into it may only produce modest improvements. So what is the source of noise in hydraulic systems? Without a doubt, a hydraulic system’s greatest contributor to noise is the power unit. Noise not only emanates directly from the electric pump and motor, but is also caused by physical vibration or from pressure fluctuations.
Electric motor noise in particular emanates from bearings, the stator assembly and the rotor, especially the fan. A standard electric motor also contains a fan with blades designed to offer cooling, whether the motor shaft rotates clockwise counter-clockwise. A fan designed for rotation in only one direction is sure to generate less noise, which justifies the expense of this application.
