The 60 Gallon Quincy Air Compressor is a Thing of Beauty

One of the best Quincy air compressor models is its 60-gallon unit. It is gas powered with a voltage of 230V. It has an ACFM (Actual Cubic Feet per Minute) of 15.2 when operating at maximum RPM and a standard pressure of 175 psi-g (pounds per square inch gauge). The maximum RPM of this vertical unit’s motor is 1310 rpm.

The model is the QT-54 Splash Lubricated Reciprocating Air compressor and utilizes a single phase (simplex) motor. Its startup is capacitor based and there is a built-in overheating protection scheme integrated into the 5 horsepower motor. The motor runs on a 230V power source.

The pump of this Quincy air compressor itself has a rating of 30,000 hours of service life. The motor emits low noise and with even lower levels of vibration, measured at just about 75 decibels.

This free standing air compressor has a 60-gallon upright tank making the unit measure about 5 feet tall. The overall weight is at 400 lbs making it a bit of a heavyweight.  The unit stands on a base plate but it is recommended that this Quincy air compressor is situated in a corner and the upright tank is fastened with a safety belt to avoid any incidents.

This Quincy air compressor’s tank is built from solid cast iron to prevent puncturing. What it needs though is an accessory kit, which comes separately. The compressor also has a high-capacity oil reservoir. The oil is used to lubricate and cool the unit during operation. The higher capacity means the compressor runs at a lower temperature.

Additionally, the QT-54 air compressor has a 4-cylinder setup. The cylinders are also made of cast-iron. Cast iron is not malleable, meaning it retains its structure within rigid tolerances. This leads to greater operational efficiency.
