Quincy Compressor HVAC Climate Control, Climate control is a very demanding market with diverse operating conditions, custom performance expectations and bottom-line accountability. An efficient climate control air compressor is essential for ensuring that an HVAC system produces clean, dry, low-oil (<2 ppm) air. Quincy Compressor offers complete climate control compressor systems that can meet your unique air system demands, regardless of your industry or application.
A reciprocating air compressor is a positive-displacement compressor that uses a crankshaft-driven piston and cylinder to compress the air. A single-stage reciprocating piston compressor works by drawing the air into the cylinder where it is compressed in a single-piston stroke of approximately 120 PSI and then sent to a storage tank. A two-stage compressor includes an additional steps where the air is compressed by a second, smaller piston to a pressure of up to 175 PSI.

Reciprocating Air Compressors Work
Compressors decrease the amount of space air takes up by compacting it. A reciprocating compressor is a positive-displacement air compressor that uses a crankshaft-powered piston and cylinders. Our piston air compressors use either a single- or two-stage process to compress air.
Compressing air decreases its volume and increases its density without changing it to liquid. Here is how a reciprocating air compressor works:
- Gas enters the cylinder through the intake valve.
- The piston pulls away from the intake valve and allows the gas to pass into the cylinders.
- The crankshaft powers the piston, which compresses the gas in one stroke of about 120 pounds per square inch (psi) of pressure.
- In two-stage compressors, air travels to a second cylinder for another round of compression. A second piston compresses the gas at a pressure rate of 175 psi.
- Once complete, the compressed air is sent to a storage tank for use.
Reciprocating air compressors are compact options workers can apply to natural gas processing and delivery and oil refining. These air compressors work across industries to give you powerful compression.
Our application specific air compressor models include climate control systems that are designed and engineered for efficient and effective climate control in all types of operating environments. The options include Simplex Splash Lubricated Tank-Mount models that include an ASME pressure relief valve, a pressure gauge, a manual shut-off at tank discharge and a manual tank drain. A Duplex Splash Lubricated Tank-Mount model with a Duplex Control Panel and optional dryer is also available.
