I have never managed to quieten my SG. The quietest SG is a miltiple segment
one - It crackles a bit, but the computer case fans make very little noise
and are highly effective. The nosiest (IMO) are the single gaps, because
they make a fair crack, and need a compressor to quench them properly. RSGs
are the best, but can be noisy as many of them use power tool motors.
