HOW DO SCROLL COMPRESSORS WORK? Read more at Air Compressors



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 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.

    I have heard of customers say they had moisture in the oil tank. Is this a problem?

    We have found that with humid climates and intermittent use, the scroll compressor will ingest moisture. If the moisture filter is not replaced or gets saturated, moisture can collect in the oil tank. Rest assured this moisture will NOT be collected in the air tank nor enter your air supply. While the excess moisture will not hamper performance of the unit it can be a nuisance with oil mist expelling through the unloader valve (the port under the pressure switch).

    To resolve this occasional issue, the Moisture Drain Kit comes pre-installed on the the new Elite 30/60 Scroll Compressor (item 63600) for better performance.

    What is optimum oil fill level?

    Oil should be filled halfway between the ADD and FULL marks, not the whole way to the FULL line.

    What improvements have been made to this new Eastwood QST 30-60 Scroll Air Compressor?

    To increase the performance of this unit, a new and improved pressure switch has been added for longer service life in a wider variety of conditions.

    The hoodless design offers superior cooling, easier serviceability, and no sacrifice in noise reduction.

    A moisture drain kit is now included and makes it easier then ever to drain any oil tank moisture build up so the compressor always runs at peak performance.

    Safety Information

    Always read and fully understand operators manual before using this product. Always consult a certified electrician to install the unit. Always keep hands out of the way of rotating components. Never operate this tool in wet conditions due to electrical shock hazard. Never weld to the tank of a compressor.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A quiet shop compressor that won’t interrupt your conversation! I mentioned to a friend that I was going to put in a dedicated compressor to run a CNC mill and he recommended that I check out a scroll compressor. He mentioned that they’re quiet compared to the typical reciprocating pump compressors that are usually available in the major home improvement stores. I looked into the technology and places where I could buy one and found that Eastwood had a model with just the capacity and price that I needed. I’m so glad I bought this compressor! It’s so much quieter than the other compressor I have and I’m thinking seriously about selling my other compressor and buying another of these to replace it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and reliable As advertised. This is an exceptional product. So quiet that you can talk normally in the shop with the system running.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A+ on Packaging. Very quiet. It is heavier than I anticipated, thank God it is on wheels. Compressor stops at 10 bars, not 11 bars as per instructions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compressor As advertised, quite and so far keeps up with the pressure. Did come with a bad pressure gauge but was replaced super quickly

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Ever!!! Amazingly quite machine. Wry well built and engineered. Since we’ve received the machine, we put it into service and haven’t had the first problem. I’m extremely impressed and will be purchasing another one when our other air compressor fails us from now on Eastwood is the brand we use
    Date published: 2023-03-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Initial Impression Not being familiar with scroll compressors I debated about purchasing the 30/60. I researched the little I could find about consumer grade scroll compressors and read all the reviews on the Eastwood site. I am a stickler about maintenance and felt that I could handle the oil and water issues in exchange for the continuous duty rating and quiet operation. What really sold me was the when I contacted both the Eastwood store in Parma and Eastwood Customer Service. They were very helpful, answered my questions and insured that the compressor I purchased would have the uprated components of current models. Brianna C in customer service went out of her way to get back to me concerning the pre purchase questions. So after two weeks, initial hookup went well, compressor runs smoothly, is exceptionally quiet and appears to live up to it's CFM rating.. The unloader valve releasing air is rather noisy but is to expected.
    Date published: 2023-01-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elite QST Air Compressor Very quite and works well for our auto detail business. We have a small shop, so we have to answer phone call when the compressor is running and only 15 a 20 ft away from the phone. Would hesitate to purchase this compressor again.

    Questions & Answers

    What would cause the compressor oil to be draining from the bottom of the air tank?  I drain the air tank every single night and do a quick open and close of the oil tank valve about once a week as recommended. Only had compressor for 4 months. Thanks

    Will this really be enough air volume for an all over repaint? 12.7 CFM doesn't seem like quite enough, that's about what my current compressor puts out and it just runs constantly. I know this thing can run at 100% duty cycle but....

    Asked by: Ryan
    its' 12.7 at 90psi. Most HVLP guns run at 30psi or less, so the CFM shoudl be north of 13 that low.

    What is the recommended interval to replace the oil, oil filter & water separator after the first and third year of use?

    Asked by: Bdud
    We recommend changing these yearly. In the past we have suggested longer intervals for some of these, but found that three years is too long between intervals.

    Does this have the new 4 horse power motor and I see it has moisture drain kit. What is the average on needing to drain this? Does it have an auto drain valve

    Asked by: TomV119
    Yes, this has the 4HP motor and drain kit is included. It really depends on your use case and environmental conditions. We have some updated general guidance in the instruction manual (, but the general theme is in more humid environments (eg. summer time in the south) where you're using the unit intermittently several time a week it is a good idea to quick drain it before you switch it on every day. It takes less than thirty seconds to flip the valve, watch the flow, and close it. Weekly at a minimum. If you use the unit hard enough that the oil boils off the moisture that's great and you might not need to drain it very often. In northern winters (like right now here in PA) you may also not need to drain it often just because the humidity in the air is so low. An auto drain valve is something that is currently in development and testing...

    I have a 50amp breaker with NEMA 6-50R for My Mig 180 that I currently use. Is the plug outlet the same? Can I just unplug the welder and plug in this compressor?

    Asked by: TomV119
    You can do that no problem, this unit comes without a plug end so you will simply need to source one from a local hardware store and install it. We always highly recommend a licensed electrician perform electrical installations.

    Very interested for the sound level but has the system been redesigned to eliminate the weekly water/oil drain? Seems for the high price there would be better fix then weekly drain and refill, never had this issues with our large scroll systems at work

    Most all new compressors accumulate some water. Please see out technical service bulletin:
