    Default Dust collector vibration transmission?

    Might be a dumb question... I'm putting in a dust collection system in a hobby only woodworking set up in my garage. Have a 3hp dust collector that's plenty noisy and I'm trying to limit vibration transmission into the various metal pipes as I live near noise sensitive people and am hoping not to have a pipe system that's even noisier than the cyclone. Does flex metal hose transmit loud vibrations to the pipes or should I use a length of rubber hose? Rubber hose would have more debris flow resistance and might crack in -20deg winters when I'm still woodworking in the unheated space. Thanks for info.

    Rubber, and flex pipe, both will dampen vibrations. You will want that, to prevent noise from being transmitted. Most commercial systems have a section of rubber coated cloth tube near the fan to prevent vibrations. Good balance of the fan rotating assembly helps too.
