Staff Answer
This Quincy QT-5 Splash Lubricated Reciprocating Air Compressor should be ran for a total of 100 hours at full discharge operating pressure to break-in the new piston rings. Until the rings are seated, the compressor will discharge higher than normal amounts of lubricant. In light of this fact, the lubricant level should be checked more frequently during the 100 hour break-in period.

The factory recommends a 100 Hour break-in interval. At that point you are supposed to drain the break-in oil out and refill with Quin-Cip oil to the recommended level.

No. You have to provide your own disconnect between the breaker and the unit. Check your local codes for specific requirements.

There is a pressure switch on the unit that will turn the unit on at 145 psi and turn off the unit at 175 psi. The unit does not come with a air- water separator, and there is not any electrical components needed for a 230 volt supply cord.

The one I bought last year did not come with any water seperators or regulators. Everything electrical was already attached to the unit, all I had to do was hook up my supply voltage.

I do use my Quincy Compressor in an unheated shop, in below freezing weather. The only change that is required is to run it with a thinner 10w compressor oil.
