Plant Engineering readers voted Quincy Compressor’s QGD direct-drive rotary screw line of air compressors as the Gold Product of the Year Award winner for 2009 in the compressed air category.
The awards were recently presented as part of the 2010 Manufacturing/Automation Summit in Chicago and recognized more than 50 of the best new products in 17 categories, each with a bronze, silver and gold winner.
The QGD rotary screw air compressor features a modular enclosure that limits sound levels to 67 dB. The unit uses a direct drive air-end, which uses no gears or belts, and a C-Face mounted motor that transmits power directly. It uses a horizontal separator tank and multi-service block that allows for the use of a spin-on filter, oil separation and ease of maintenance. The QGD is recognized across the industry for re-setting the bar for high efficiency, low sound, and ease of service.
Congratulations Quincy Compressor Team!
