Pharmaceutical air compressors

Today’s pharmaceutical manufacturers are faced with the challenge of working in an increasingly strict regulatory environment while still maintaining a high level of quality control. The need for clean operating machinery for testing and production has never been more clear. Since 1920, Quincy has been manufacturing industrial compressors for use in a wide range of industries, including pharma and medicine.

The Challenge

Clean, dry, contaminate-free compressed air … These are all characteristics required by the pharmaceutical industry. Working with delicate medication produced at high speeds also requires dependable, reliable, relentless operation and duty cycle to deliver trouble free air at acceptable costs. To meet these requirements, pharma manufacturers depend on compressors that can rise to the challenge of a fast-paced production or testing environment, while eliminating the risk of contamination.

The Solution

Quincy’s selection of air compressors and air treatment products for pharmaceutical plants can be relied upon to deliver:

Clean air: Quincy offers particulate and coalescing filters rated down to 0.01 micron and 0.001 ppm.

Dry Air: Quincy also offers desiccant air dryers with pressure due point ranging from -40 °F to -100 °F.a

Oil-free operation: The Quincy Scroll series of compressors are oil-free and as such will not introduce oil to the compressed air stream.

Dependability: Through quality engineering and rigorous manufacturing processes, Quincy machines and assembles equipment that is reliable whether it is being used to supply compressed air for medication manufacturing, conveyance, or instrument air.

Low-cost maintenance: Built to last and to require minimal service. That’s how every Quincy air compressor and vacuum pump is designed.
