quinsyn fluids from Quincy CompressorQuincy’s fluid analysis program is offered to all customers using QuinSyn fluids in Quincy Compressor Rotary Screw Compressors. This service provides optimum drain intervals for compressors operating on QuinSyn fluids. Monitoring of the total acid number (TAN), barium level and/or viscosity throughout the life of the fluid provides maximum protection to your machine, while best utilizing the extended life features of QuinSyn.

The fluid analysis provides historical information, detailing items such as hours on the fluid, viscosity and total acid number (TAN). Should results appear unusual or suspicious, a detailed analysis can pinpoint specific contaminants. A detailed report is furnished to you, your Quincy Distributor and the Quincy Compressor factory upon completion of the fluid analysis.
Although QuinSyn fluids are rated by hours of life expectancy under normal operating conditions, it is recommended that fluid samples be taken every 500 to 2,000 hours and sent to Quincy Compressor Fluid Analysis until a history of performance in a specific compressor application is established. Once the appropriate drain interval is established, the frequency of the fluid analysis can be reduced unless operating conditions change.

QuinSyn Plus – QuinSyn Plus is the factory fill for Quincy rotary screw compressors. QuinSyn Plus is an ISO 46 viscosity fluid with an 8,000 hour life under normal operating conditions (exact fluid life is determined by the fluid analysis program). It is synthetic hydrocarbon/ester fluid. QuinSyn Plus is suited for use in rotary screw air compressors operating in harsh service conditions where the fluid is exposed to higher temperatures for extended periods of time.

QuinSyn PG – QuinSyn PG is a custom blended polyalklene glycol/ester (PAG). QuinSyn PG is an ISO 46 viscosity fluid with an 8,000 hour life under normal operating conditions. QuinSyn PG is the recommended fluid in high humidity applications due to its ability to hold water. QuinSyn PG is best suited for applications where high humidity exists and the machine cannot be shut down to drain water from the reservoir.

QuinSyn XP – QuinSyn XP is the factory fill for high pressure units (defined as units over 150 psig full flow). QuinSyn XP is a custom blended polyolester (POE) fluid ideally suited for rotary screw air compressors. QuinSyn XP is an ISO 68 viscosity fluid with a 12,000 hour life at 100 & 125 psig full flow under normal operating conditions and 8,000 hours as a high pressure fluid. QuinSyn XP is designed for application where the fluid is exposed to elevated temperatures for extended periods of time.

                    Typical Properties of QuinSyn XP                        ISO 68

QuinSyn F – QuinSyn F is Quincy’s food grade fluid suitable in applications where there may be incidental food contact. Compliant with FDA 21 CFR 178.3570 (Lubricants with Incidental Food Contact), QuinSyn F is authorized by the USDA with an H-1 rating for use in federally inspected meat and poultry plants. Since the fluid is viewed as a possible indirect food additive, the limit for food contact is 10 ppm. Near white in color and low in volatility, QuinSyn F is ideal for clean service.

QuinSyn Flush – QuinSyn Flush is specifically formulated synthetic fluid capable of dissolving varnish and solubilizing sludge from lubricating systems while they are operating. QuinSyn Flush contains oxidation and rust inhibitors, and can be used as a short-term fluid (maximum of 500 hours). It is fully compatible with mineral oils and QuinSyn synthetic fluids, and is highly recommended for use as a flushing fluid when converting to QuinSyn PG from QuinSyn Plus or QuinSyn XP.
