QUIET XTREME PISTON AIR COMPRESSORS, from Quincy Compressor, are now available in 10- and 15-hp versions.
These extremely quiet units allow for normal conversations while running, and boast sound levels as low as 64 db(A), according to the company. They feature an air-cooled aftercooler for moisture removal, an axial flow fan for maximum cooling and an intercooler for low operating temperatures, as well as removable front and back panels for easy service. The 10-hp unit can operate on single- or 3-phase power, while the 15-hp unit can only run on 3-phase power. Both units have a 120-gallon horizontal tank and measure 74" long x 34" wide x 61" high.
