If you take a look around any auto repair shop, you’ll likely find compressed air is the force behind a number of tools and processes. From basic air-ratchets, to grinders and drills, the well-chosen compressed air provides a consistent powerful supply of force to these tools.
While compressed air is very useful, the type of compressor that your shop requires is largely dictated by the power demands of your operations. For average sized shops, a horsepower rating from 5-10hp will prove sufficient. Models such as the QT-5 reciprocating compressor from Quincy provide plenty of power for almost any auto mechanic or repair shop application. These compressors are compact so you don’t have to worry about taking up useful space that you could be using to turn a profit! Quincy’s two-stage units feature faster recovery times, higher CFM, and higher duty cycles than other available compressors. In addition to being incredibly capable, the Quincy QT-5 boasts a pump life of 50,000 hours! This translates to more time getting work out the door and less time doing compressor maintenance.
