noisy pump


Recommended Posts

I just converted my press/log splitter to electric. I used a cheap norther hydraulics pump. 2 stage , 11gpm at 36oo. I have it on a freak drive 3 hp 3 phase motor. It works great, but it is noisy. I did a little research on it and found that other people have had that problem..
It is noisier at faster speeds. I was wondering if a better quality pump would make a difference.

It seems that the electric run pumps are lower gpm, but possibly better built, and maybe need more horsepower for the same gpm. I am limited (without building a converter and getting a bigger motor) to 3 hp 3 phase motor.

I can live with this one as is and build a soundproofing ventilated box around it. But If I could make it real quiet, that would be even better.

thanks for your thoughts on this.
