Here's some:

Mechanical (pump & motor) noise:

Build a portable insulated enclosure for it (let sufficent air *IN* tho)
a la impact printer enclosures;

Move it outside the space you're in

Exhaust/engine noise (if gas):

route the exhaust outside or fit a bigger muffler;

Compressor pump intake noise:

Could you fit a muffler here too? Weren't air cleaners also called
'silencers' at one time?

Earplugs (work great!)
