Quincy refrigerated dryers play the important role of removing condensation from compressor systems. Without a dryer, moisture can accumulate in a compressor. With this moisture comes dirt and other particulate matter, which can cause oxidation and other types of premature wear on delicate compressor components. A refrigerated dryer eliminates the problem by cooling moisture in the air to approximately 37F, where it condenses and can be removed from the compressor system by way of an automatic drain.
Quincy manufactures four main refrigerated dryer product lines: the QPNC non-cycling dryer, the QED cycling dryer, the QPVS variable speed dryer, and the QRHT compact high temperature dryer. The QPNC uses a two-stage heat exchanger configuration to deliver consistent performance when handling smaller, constant loads. Key features of the QPNC include an easy-to-use control panel that allows you to adjust the system for maximum efficiency with zero loss drains. Depending on their configuration, QPNC refrigerated dryers can provide a maximum 230 psig pressure at volumes between 10-3000 CFM.
QED cycling dryers reduce energy usage by cycling the cooling system on and off as demand decreases. They feature a three-stage configuration with a heat exchanger that allows the refrigeration system. Our cycling dryers do not require cooling in a glycol bath and are designed to automatically adjust as the operating environment changes.
QPVS premium variable speed dryers are the most energy efficient dryers in the market. These dryers speed up or slow down based off incoming air demand. This allows for a constantly stable dew point even in harsh environments. Also, because of their smart compact design, the QPVS dryers have a smaller physical footprint, and lower CO2 emissions than thermal mass and non-cycling dryers.
Finally, our QRHT product line features a space-saving design that combines an air-cooled aftercooler, refrigerated dryer, moisture separator, zero-loss drain and coalescing filter in one device. A total system solution for your air cooling needs, the QRHT delivers up to 232 psig at between 25 and 125 CFM.
All Quincy refrigerated dryers can be counted on to deliver exceptional performance in any situation. Our products are backed by a comprehensive warranty as well as support from our nationwide team of compressed air experts.Contact a representativein your area or visit individual product pages using the following links:
Desiccant dryers differ from refrigerated dryers in that, rather than cooling air to remove moisture, they rely on a desiccant to adsorb potential contaminants. Quincy manufactures four main product lines of desiccant dryer. Our heatless dryers (QHD series) are affordable to purchase and operate, and they feature microprocessor controls and 15% purge rates.
For heavier-duty applications, upgrade to our heated (QHP) series of products. These dryers require less air to regenerate the desiccant and are available with the optional Quincy MicroBurst Regeneration (MBR) system. When set up properly, a QHP desiccant dryer equipped with MBR technology can cut purge requirements in half, saving you money and helping you realize a return on your investment in as little as five months.
Other available products include the QBP blow purge desiccant dryer, which is our most efficient dryer, with purge rates down to 1.75%. QBP dryers are also NEMA-4 compliant and feature some of our lowest operating and maintenance costs. We also offer the QMOD and QMD. These include a modular heatless system for light-duty use.

In heavy-duty industrial operations, water vapor in compressed air equipment can lead to premature failure, corrosion, frozen air lines, quality control issues and a range of other operational problems. A desiccant air dryer system purifies compressed air by absorbing moisture. You can find these systems in any industrial application in which reliable equipment and exceptional quality control is necessary.
Quincy Compressor manufactures a full line of desiccant air dryer systems. Our products provide air purification from -40F PDP down to -100F PDP. These dryers are built and designed to provide the smallest footprint possible while ensuring maximum performance. Quincy desiccant dryers have ASME and CRN designed pressure vessels standard. Also, standard with the desiccant dryers is a 2-year package warranty and a 5-year valve warranty.
Quincy QHD heatless desiccant dryers use a small portion of dried, compressed air to purge and regenerate the off-line tower. The QHD has been engineered to ensure optimal performance and efficiency in a range of different applications while keeping downtime to a minimum.
The QHD series of desiccant dryer systems includes 13 models that deliver between 230 and 3,400 CFM of clean, dry air at a pressure of 100 psig. All feature a heavy-duty steel base and dual tower configuration that regenerates automatically.
Under normal operation, air is forced upwards through the drying tower, where moisture and contaminants are removed and a small amount 15% of air is diverted downwards through the regeneration tower where it depressurizes the desiccant bed to ambient conditions. Overall velocities are kept below 50 feet/minute so that air remains in contact with the desiccant for a minimum of 4.5 seconds. The entire process follows a 6-10 minute NEMA cycle, which consists of three to five minutes of drying time, 2 minutes and 25 seconds to 4 minutes and 20 seconds of regeneration and 40 seconds of re-pressurization.
Like all our desiccant-type air dryers, the QHD heatless air dryer system includes high-quality components and is backed by a two-year comprehensive warranty. For details, download the product brochure or contact a Quincy rep directly.
The QHP series of heated desiccant dryers features a built-in heating system that regenerates the offline tower using half the amount of air as our heatless products. This translates to improved efficiency, less wear and lower operating costs overall.
Nine configurations are available that can deliver between 850 and 3,400 CFM of dry air at 100 psig. Key components include the same high-performance switching valve system found in the QHD and a heavy-duty steel base. From the ground up, the QHD has been designed to ensure long life and low maintenance requirements, even when operating at high temperatures.
Operation is similar to the QHD, with the distinction that purged air passes through a heater before beginning the regeneration process. Because the air is hotter, less is required to absorb moisture from the desiccant beads. Air is forced through the system at a maximum of 50 feet/second, with up to 5.5 seconds of desiccant contact time during the drying phase.
QHP industrial desiccant air dryers run on an eight-hour NEMA cycle. The drying phase lasts four hours, the heating phase two and a half hours, the cooling phase one hour and twenty minutes and the re-pressurizing phase 10 minutes.
The QHP is available with the optional Quincy MicroBurst Regeneration (MBR) system, the only full-load energy saver available for use with heated purge desiccant air dryers. The MBR cuts purge requirements in half and greatly reduces heater on time. When equipped with the Quincy MBR, our Heated Purge dryers use 50% less energy. ROI can be realized within five months depending on dryer size and local power costs.
Quincy QBP dryers combine heat with forced ambient air for regeneration. As a result, they have a lower purge requirement than both the QHD and QHP desiccant dryer systems. The QBP is available in 13 different configurations that can produce between 210 and 3,400 CFM of dry air at 100 psig.
After air has passed through the drying tower, a small amount is heated and blown down through the purge tower, where moisture is removed from the desiccant. The blower component improves the overall efficiency of this process, requiring less air to perform the same amount of work. Sophisticated electronic controls and regulators automate the cycle, making it worry- and maintenance-free. Average purge levels are kept to 1.75%.
For optimal performance, run the QBP blower purge desiccant dryer with a Quincy reciprocating or rotary screw compressor and Q-Sorb desiccant. Under normal conditions, Q-Sorb drying beads can provide up to three years of continuous operation.
The Quincy QMOD is one of our most advanced desiccant dryer systems. Like the QHD series of products, these compact dryers use a portion of dried compressed air to regenerate the offline tower. Their small footprint has been designed to save floor space without compromising performance or efficiency, making them ideal for use in a crowded lab or tight compressor room.
Use the QMOD dryer to remove moisture, aerosols and mist from a stream of compressed air. A 0.01 PPM polishing pre-filter removes large impurities, while the units specially designed purification cartridges contain a high-performance desiccant and after-filter that completely removes remaining water vapors.
15 available models accept input from NPT pipe sizes between and 1, at flow rates from eight to 365 SCFM. A sophisticated electronic diagnostic and control center puts cycle information and other useful tools right at your fingertips, keeping operation and maintenance safe and simple.
Install the QMOD air desiccant dryer horizontally or vertically for maximum flexibility. A true modular system, the QMOD can be counted on to deliver instrument-quality compressed air in practically any situation.
Desiccant air dryer systems consist of a pair of towers containing silica gel or another desiccant. Quincy machines use our proprietary Q-Sorb product, an enhanced formula derived from activated alumina that provides improved absorption, lower pressure drop and higher crush strength.
As air passes through the towers, water vapor clings to the desiccant, effectively stripping it from the air until a desired moisture content is met. We measure moisture in pressure dew point (PDP). PDP refers to the temperature it would be necessary to cool air to achieve the same amount of dryness. For example, in many process industry applications, a PDP of at least -40F is recommended. In other words, air is required to have the same moisture level it would have at -40F.
Desiccant air dryers work in conjunction with an industrial air compressor. Their dual tower design allows you to time drying operations to a standard NEMA cycle, in which the one tower regenerates (purges) while the other performs the drying function. This prolongs desiccant life and allows for continuous operation for extended periods.
A desiccant air dryer system is an important component of any industrial operation in which compressed air of a uniform quality is required. Most air dryers run off electrical power. Because they are for continuous use, however, they can represent a significant operating expense over time. Thats why its important to choose a machine from a manufacturer you can trust.

Few things are more annoying than having to spend an afternoon at the laundromat doing your laundry for the week. Not everyone has enough space to accommodate both a washer and a dryer. Thankfully, washer and dryer combos, such as the LG WM3488HW, allow you to make quick work of your laundry from the comfort of your home, without taking up the space required by separate units.
LGs compact combo washer and dryer is a perfect fit for an apartment or small home. The 2.3-cubic-foot model has an array of LG technology to improve both washing and drying cycles. That includes ventless drying, so you dont need to worry about where to position the model, and a clean cycle that you can use after several loads to sterilize the inside of the washer drum (something thats especially useful for these combo units).
The LG WM3488HW also includes six different washing motions to make sure even larger loads are thoroughly cleaned. The model doesnt skimp on treatment options, either, with dispensers for pre-wash liquids, bleach, and fabric softener. Its also designed for quiet operation and automatic cycle optimization based on the load. Washing programs include the traditional options, plus choices like baby wear, sportswear, speed wash, and several other options.
Washers can come with a lot of great smart features these days, and combo models are no exception. We particularly like the many options of this Blomberg model, which allow you to customize your washing and drying cycle exactly how you need to a useful option for starting your laundry in the morning and coming back after work just in time to have your clothes ready to hang and fold.
The 1.95-cubic-foot combo includes 16 different wash programs, including hand-wash, baby clothes wash, jogging wear wash, a wash and wear setting for easy results, and much more. The Blomberg WMD24400 also has intelligent temperature control to make sure the temperature is always where it needs to be for a specific load of laundry. The delay start option will let you choose exactly when the cycles begin, so you can get the timing just right with a little experience. All of this is controlled with a basic dial and a useful digital display.
The spacious 2.8-cubic-foot drum in this model is only one of the many benefits LG brings to the table with its latest work. The LCD display and SmartThinQ compatibility are welcome features, since few combo models are this smart. You can monitor and control the model from your phone, get notifications about what cycle its in, and even track how much water and electricity youre using. The auto dose feature will detect soil levels in your laundry and dispense however much detergent it thinks is necessary for a full cleaning (you also get alerts for when its time to fill up detergent again).
If you prefer more control over your laundry, you can choose from 17 different washing programs and six drying programs (including outdoor, perm press, and delicates). We also really like the TurboWash design that helps power through larger loads in less time, saving up to 20 minutes when you fill the dryer. Its also compatible with LGs Side Kick, which is a mini pedestal that also functions as a tiny extra washer thats great for washing one set of dirty clothes or tackling smaller loads while the big washer does its work.
This energy-efficient machine may be small, but dont let its size fool you. Its loaded with cool tech and smart engineering. This unit has one-button convertible venting/condensing options, meaning you can easily convert the dryer from vented to ventless. Theres a winterize option for RV users, while dual fans make the machine dry faster, and a quiet mode makes the dryer operate at less than 60 decibels.
In addition to its intelligent engineering, the Deco DC 4400 also thrives at cleaning and drying clothes with features like an automatic water level sensor, delay start time, a sensor dry feature, automatic heat and dry levels, a 12-minute hot-dry refresh cycle, and a wrinkle guard feature.
When you go to unload the machine, the 180-degree door swing and angled door handle reduce back strain. The Deco DC 4400 is also easy to install, has built-in diagnostics, and can be portable. It feels like the only things this machine cant do are fold your clothes and put them away for you.
Although this Magic Chef all-in-one machine has a smaller capacity (2.7 cubic feet), it can handle an exceptionally large amount of laundry. The washers maximum capacity is 26.4 pounds, and the dryers max capacity is 17.6 pounds.
This affordable washer dryer combo boasts a lot of features, too. It has a delay start time feature (up to 24 hours), de-wrinkle options, and an LED display. With 16 total wash cycles, you can properly care for virtually all of your clothing, from your delicate items to jeans to dress shirts. Theres even a tub clean cycle to keep the Magic Chef clean and mildew-free.
A washer dryer combo is a single unit that both washes and dries clothes in the same machine. An all-in-one washer dryer combo looks a lot like a standard washing machine, except when you place dirty clothes in the machine, they come out clean and dry without the need for you to transfer the clothes from the washer to the dryer.
Laundry centers are sometimes considered a type of combo machine they look a lot like stackable units, but theyre connected as one unit with a washer on the bottom and a dryer on top. Although a laundry center performs both functions in one machine, theyre different from all-in-one combo machines because you still have to transfer the clothes from the washer portion of the machine to the dryer portion.
If the washer dryer combo uses a condensing ventless dryer, once the machine washes the clothes and they cool down, the air inside the chamber is heated, and the spinning drum produces condensation. This condensation is drained out of the unit through a drainage tube. Then, the process happens again, and more hot air and tumbling cause more condensation until the clothes dry. To learn more about how ventless dryers work, check out our guide on how different types of dryers work.
Yes. If you purchase a reliable machine, your washer dryer combo unit will wash and dry your clothes, but you should not expect it to perform exactly like a separate washer and dryer. This is an entirely different way of doing laundry, and an all-in-one combo machine is typically not going to do your laundry as fast as a separate washer and dryer.
Oftentimes, washer dryer combos are ideal for people with limited space or for those who want to avoid the laundromat. If you have a large laundry room in your home, youd likely opt for a separate washer and dryer over a combo all-in-one washer dryer.
It depends. If you have limited space, these machines can be huge space savers. An all-in-one combo machine also makes it so you can set it and forget it. Because the machine both washes and dries in one fell swoop, you wont have a moldy load of laundry waiting for you if you leave the laundry sitting in the machine (like you would if you left a load of laundry sitting in the washer too long).
Washer dryer combos are generally energy-efficient. The front-load washer uses little water, while condenser dryers are also considered energy-efficient (although drying typically does take longer in a combo machine).
Washer dryer combos are smaller than separate machines. Their capacities are often around 2 to 3 cubic feet. You can, however, find a larger capacity machine (for instance, the Kenmore Elite 41002 is 4.5 cubic feet), but you typically wont find the mega capacities that you can find with standalone washers and dryers.
Yes and no. You wont be able to clean a large load of laundry in a compact machine thats 2.3 cubic feet or less. You can fit a small basket of laundry in a compact machine (probably about two or three days of clothing), but you wont be able to fit a large comforter or a large, full load of laundry.
It depends on the specific unit and the amount of clothes youre cleaning. However, generally speaking, the wash cycle can take anywhere from 25 to 90 minutes. The drying times take longer (typically anywhere from 60 minutes to as long as 4 hours). Washer dryer combo machines typically take longer to dry your clothing than standalone ventless dryers (probably around double the time).
Getting the laundry setup you need is important, but you also have to consider how to stay within your budget. Youll also want to think about your laundry habits, and if youd be open to changing your typical schedule for something that would better suit a washer dryer combo. If you usually do all your laundry in one day or wait to do laundry until your hamper is overflowing, it could be challenging to tackle the entire load with your washer dryer combo.
If you have the space for it, a full-size laundry center is a good investment because youll have virtually no limit to load sizes. Inversely, if youre the kind of person who routinely forgets to take your laundry out after a wash load and then has to re-wash the clothing to get rid of gross smells or mold, then you may benefit from a washer dryer combo.
Be sure to consider the combo machines laundry capacity. If your unit consistently is too small for your regular laundry loads or cant fit your blankets, curtains, or towels, you may find yourself shopping for another laundry unit in the near future. Youll also need to decide where you want your laundry machine to be located and make sure there are compatible electric plugs in place.
