Inside the QR Series
What features make the QR compressor the best?
A positive displacement oil pump forces lubricating oil through a 5-micron filter to a rifle-drilled crankshaft and connecting rods. All moving parts are lubricated, cleansed and cooled by this oil flow.
At start-up, the QR will not start compressing air until the necessary oil pressure is established.
Loss of lubrication during operation is the most common cause of destructive failure in oil-lubricated compressors. The QR, using Quincy's patented Safe-Q-Lube system, automatically unloads the compressor if oil pressure drops below set limits. The compressor remains unloaded until oil pressure is re-established.
The QR is equipped with a full-flow, spin-on, 5-micron filter which removes contaminants from oil before oil starts recirculating.
Cast iron construction
The QR's cast iron construction of all stationary parts provides sufficient weight and strength to ensures smooth operation.
The QR has oversized, tapered roller bearings to provide reliable operation and extraordinary life.
Heavy-duty, self-lapping disc valves combine high efficiency and low maintenance
The counterweighted crankshaft is dynamically balanced for low vibration operation.
