(1) Eastwood Elite QST® 30/60 Scroll Air Compressor


Will the scroll compressor need to be hardwired or will it have a plug?
The scroll compressor will come with a 10 ga cord that will not have a plug end. This will give you the option to hardwire or install an appropriate plug of your choice.

Will a 20 amp breaker be sufficient for power usage?
Refer to the Compressor nameplate for voltage and amperage requirements. All wiring must be done by a licensed electrician, in accordance with National Electric Code and state and local requirements. For best performance, the Compressor must be installed on a dedicated circuit, with a circuit breaker or fuse for protection. Each time the Compressor motor starts, it will momentarily draw several times its full load amperage. It is important to consider this start-up surge when specifying circuit breakers or fuses. If fuses are used, time-delay type must be installed.

How Much does it cost to ship the Scroll Compressor?
Shipping is a 250 Dollar Flat rate Fee. In store pick up will also be available at our three retail locations.

Does the Scroll Compressor still need an air Filter/Drier?
Just like a piston compressor the scroll compressor compresses air which causes the air temperature to rise and moisture to condense Therefore the same Filtration and moisture separation will be needed to ensure clean dry air.

What are the maintenance requirements?
After the first year we specify an oil change and every three years we specify an oil and filter change. There is an air filter, an oil filter and a moisture separator/filter that would be changed at that time.

Where is this Compressor Made?
The air compressor is made in China to Eastwood's specifications. We do all validation and testing of products here in the USA to ensure that they meet our exacting standards.

How does a scroll compressor work?

A scroll compressor uses two interleaving scrolls to pump, compress or pressurize fluids, including liquids and gases. One of the scrolls is typically fixed, while the other scroll orbits without rotating, which results in trapping, pumping or compressing pockets of fluid between the scrolls.

Another method for producing the compression motion is co-rotating the scrolls at the same time, but with offset centers of rotation. The relative motion is the same as if one were orbiting around the other.

How do you quiet an air compressor?

The easiest solution to quieting an air compressor is to buy a new ultra-quiet model. If you are looking for a way to quiet your existing air compressor, there are some tips that you can follow.

You can install an intake silencer, which will help to dampen the sound produced by the incoming air rushing through the filter of your air compressor. Another tip is to install anti-vibration pads under your stationary air compressor. You can also build your own soundproof box to house your air compressor.

If those methods don't work, it is recommended to move your air compressor as far away from you as possible or wear hearing protection when near your air compressor.

Is a scroll or a rotary compressor better?

In general, rotary air compressors have more power and can cool more air than a scroll air compressor. Rotary compressors are usually a better option in larger central air conditioning systems, but the power could be wasted if used in a smaller central unit or a window air conditioner.

Despite its ability to cool larger quantities of air, a rotary air compressor is typically less expensive than a scroll air compressor.

Scroll air compressors are becoming increasingly popular because they are usually more efficient, energy-saving, durable, reliable and much quieter compared to rotary air compressors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should be 4 and a half star... I purchased this yesterday and spent today getting it installed in my air line system. I wanted to mention this as the only negative so far...the crate is a bit bigger than you might think, and there are instructions on the crate as to how to un crate this but it is a bit of a chore as the sides don't just "come off/apart" like the directions make it sound. Once you get it revealed the next hurdle is to get it off the crate dolly it sits on because the wheels are elevated a bit so it doesn't just come off the skid, obviously for shipment protection, but still had to be hoisted up a couple inches to get the skid out to set on the floor. FYI, the protective top is held on by 5mm hex bolts, I replaced mine with hex head cap bolts to make removal easier if needed. The photo in the instruction book DOES NOT show the sleeve on the overpressure relief valve, DO NOT REMOVE IT. Otherwise it is about 325 lbs (an average refrigerator weight), but once on the floor it rolls very smoothly and the caster brakes actually WORK! Also the outlet fitting is 1/2". The cord comes with spade connectors installed. It is as quiet as everyone says, well worth it in my book and it filled my four car garage Maxair set up as well as it's own tank in 3 mins flat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Compressor Ever!!!! Just got this as a gift from my wife! (yes I have a good one). I can not stress how Awesome this compressor is! I live in an area with close neighbors and they use to complain how noisy my old compressor was, Even had police called for noise complaint one night! I've had this for a week now and run it until 11pm or so. I have zero compliants now and i can even hear my music from my Bluetooth speaker! I haven't painted anything yet but it works fantastic for all my other air tools! My only concern is the heat this puts out, as its caused the stickers to bubble a little. No big deal, it more then makes up for performance and lack of noise. Thank You Eastwood for a fantastic product!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best compressor I ever had I bought this when they were first offered, saved a LOT of money since they are now $1900. It is more quiet than my old chugger of a compressor and more powerful. I have a machine shop and the machines use a lot of air. If you are on the fence on this it won't be a bad decision to spring for it - you won't regret it.

The manual says that you should use 1/2 fittings, hose, etc with this compressor and going to 3/8" will "greatly" hamper performance. My air hoses are 3/8" with 3/8" high flow quick connectors at the end and on tools. Do I need to go to 1/2" everywhere?

Asked by: Dave G
You can use 3/8" lines with the Eastwood QST 30/60 compressor but the flow rate will be diminished somewhat due to the smaller size (less CFM). The 3/8" high flows are a definite advantage to help increasing air flow. 1/2" fittings and hose will maximize the flow rate and give you the full advantage of the 12.7 Cubic Feet Per Minute the compressor is capable of producing with no restrictions.

Can the casters be removed and the compressor bolted to the floor for a more permanent installation and security as long as appropriate floor spacers are used for ball valve clearance?

Asked by: Waynek
Yes, when appropriately supported with the right height spacers this unit can be floor mounted

I saw one question answered that stated the unit should never be exposed to temperatures below 32F. While I would never use the compressor below freezing, can the unit be stored in an unheated external building where temps could drop to 5 degrees?

Asked by: StevesCamaro
Storing any compressor below freezing is not recommended
