Air Compressors That Produce 500 CFM And Above

Published Categorized as Types of Air Compressor No Comments on Air Compressors That Produce 500 CFM And Above

Not all compressors are specified with a CFM stated, but instead are rated in terms of their power in kW or HP. This is particularly the case when working with large air compressors which are more suited to larger industrial applications where air is being supplied to an entire facility where say, manufacturing operations are underway.

So a search for “500 CFM Air Compressor” might not actually yield what you’re looking for.

As you’ll see when converting CFM to kW or kW to CFM for Air Compressors, 500 CFM will equate to approximately 90-125 kW (125-165 HP) of Compressor Power.

So when searching for a 500 CFM Air Compressor, it makes sense to also factor into your search you may be searching for an air compressor of 90 kW power and above.

This obviously varies by model and manufacturer and these conversions are only a rule of thumb to serve as useful quick references.
