Speedaire 4B237C compressor

We are replacing an existing Speedaire 4B237C air compressor and cannot find this model number for replacement - only the 4B237 model seems to be available.

We have checked the information on the plates to the information on the 4B237.

AMPS are the same
VOLTAGE is the same
RPM is different - the 4B237C is at 3450/2850

Question - can we replace the old 4B237C with the new 4B237?

We appreciate your help!

As long as you have the correct power supply, I should think that, as is noted on the compressor sizing pages, that the important criteria for you would be the PSI output and the flow at that high pressure, along with the tank size.

A quick comparison of the two suggests that the 4B237 may have a bit more flow at the higher pressure on a comparably sized tank.

All other things being equal, and if the 4B237C was doing the job for you, I would expect that the 4B237 would do so as well.
