Abstract The aim of this study was to determine the variation in sound pressure level data due to the different types of hydraulic pump test rigs used. Using noise emission data derived from reference pumps, correcting factors were calculated for the noise emissions of over 100 commonly used hydraulic pumps of different design and size. A mathematical model of the relationship between pump design and noise emission was developed. Noise control measures presently applied to the different types of hydraulic pumps are outlined.
