Getting the Most Efficiency Out of Your Quincy Air Compressor
June 25, 2018

The venerable Quincy air compressor is hailed across industries as one of the most high-performing and efficient compressed air systems in the market. And why not: Quincy air compressor has been the subject of much engineering to reduce its operational energy demands, and Quincy has invested heavily in educating buyers about purchasing the compressor which is most efficient, getting line runs right and educating buyers and shop floor managers about making optimum use of their Quincy air compressor.


Running a Quincy air compressor most efficiently requires a relook at how you use it, how your compressed air system is configured and well it is maintained.


Since air compressor operation costs are often considered to be one of the biggest expenses in production, particularly for a smaller business or shop, in this post we look at what are some simple but extremely effective ways of reducing the operating costs of your Quincy air compressor.


  • Compressor demand – Choosing a Quincy air compressor of a particular capacity is one thing, operating it efficiently is another. Compressors each have a power-performance sweet spot. Fall too far under or over it and you can quickly see your compressed air costs rising.
  • Catching leaks – Faulty valves, worn out tubing, leaky joints and more may seem minor, but air leaks are literally your resources being blown into the wind. Very often, people are able to realize noticeable energy savings from their Quincy air compressor, simply by plugging leaks further down their compressed air lines.
  • High pressure when needed – Placing a constant demand for high pressure air on the compressor will add very significantly to your energy costs. By consolidating applications that require high pressure air, the compressor can be used for efficiently.
  • Preparing – Clogged air filters, water contamination and moist air all increase the workload on your Quincy air compressor. Not only do these reduce the amount of compressed air produced for every watt of effort, they are detrimental to the longevity of the Quincy air compressor too.
  • Pipe runs – The greatest contributor to inefficiency in a compressed air system? The pipe runs, of course. Runs which use numerous 90-degree elbow joints and excessively long piping are sure shot ways of reducing the efficiency of your compressed air system; instead, mistakenly befalling blame on the hardworking Quincy air compressor.
