The Compressor So Reliable You’ll Forget It’s There.

Performance Under Pressure

Standard oil-free compressed air systems in industrial facilities are typically designed for pressures of 80 to 130 psig. When higher pressures are required it is very cost effective to use a portion of your plant air and apply an oil-free air booster to obtain the desired pressure.

Other methods of acquiring higher pressure air such as stand-alone air compressors, air amplifiers and increasing the pressure of the entire plant are more costly and less efficient.

Application Spotlight

Laser Cutting Nitrogen Booster

Nitrogen Pressure Boosting
The two main factors when using nitrogen as an assist gas for laser cutting are: purity & high pressure. Purity: Laser cutting machines require high purity nitrogen to provide a precise and clean cut. Low Purity nitrogen could cause oxidizing of the metal and burrs. Quincy Compressor oil-free nitrogen boosters ensure that your nitrogen remains pure as no oil is allowed to enter compression.

High pressure: The nitrogen must be supplied at high pressures, on average 200-450 psig to create clean and precise cuts. Quincy Compressor nitrogen boosters are engineered to provide the pressure your laser cutting application requires.

Odyssey QDSi Easy Install Package

Buffer, Discharge Tank, Filtration and Flow Management System.

Bulletproof Installation
The Odyssey QDSi Easy-Install add-on package greatly reduces the potential for installation errors and incorrect component selection by providing the user with everything needed to ensure a successful turnkey installation. Provided is the plumbing and wiring to connect the suction and discharge to an existing Quincy Compressor booster. Inclusion of Quincy Compressor recommended components, pre-assembled at our facility, ensures a bulletproof installation solution at a lower cost.

Reduced Maintenance Costs
The QDSi Easy-Install package provides protection of equipment with Quincy Compressor specified filters. Inclusion of an inlet filter provides an extra barrier between supplied air/nitrogen and the Quincy Compressor booster. Limiting the amount of debris entering the booster reduces wear and tear on internal components and results in lowered maintenance costs.

Extended Booster Life
The innovative recycle line featured in the QDSi Easy-Install is used to recirculate excess compressed air/nitrogen back through the booster. This results in fewer load/unload cycles, which extends the life of the booster.

Reduces Space Requirements
Recirculation of excess gas also eliminates the need for large and expensive storage vessels, giving the user a better value on the space used in their facility.

Made in the USA
Every system we build is manufactured at our plant in Utah. Replacement parts are stocked on our shelves and available for next day delivery.
