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.
Liftgate Service: Is highly recommended, or sometimes required, for delivery of this product. If you have a safe method of unloading without a liftgate, you will have the opportunity to remove liftgate service at checkout. Please note that the truck driver will NOT assist in unloading the product for you. We are not responsible for personal injury or damage to the product resulting from unloading the merchandise without the benefit of a liftgate, delivery dock or forklift.
This new and improved compressor doesn't include a hood like previous units. The hood has been removed for improved performance and easier maintenance.
Always turn off the compressor or disconnect from power when not in use.

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.
