Air compressors are noisy machines, and the intake silencer, or muffler, helps to muffle that noise. Mufflers work by redirecting the airflow from the intake port so that it hits the back of the compressor head instead of passing through the head and out the exhaust port. The redirected airflow causes a "back pressure" that helps to quiet the machine. Mufflers also help to keep dirt and other debris from entering the compressor head, which can damage the piston and other internals.
