Quincy Compressor QT Raciprocating Piston, 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.
QT 5-15 hp Standard Duty Two Stage
Leading the industry with the most acfm per brake horsepower, the Quincy QT™ ensures more air while consuming less energy in the production process. A one-piece aluminum head optimizes strength and dissipates heat, while Quincy’s unique valve design provides the highest volumetric efficiency available.
The reciprocating Quincy QT is a standard duty air compressor designed to deliver more CFM per brake horsepower, ensuring the powerful, reliable performance you demand. Basic QT models include:
- Quincy 5 hp air compressors including the 2V41C60VC and the 251CP80VCB
- Quincy 7.5 hp air compressors

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.
