I’m buying a Black Max and need to know if it’s big enough?
Looking to purchase a black max the model number is B500BPL60V-SWC. It’s 375 dollars which seems fair if it’s not junk. But, might not be big enough. I need at least 12-14. Thanks.
If you know the HP of the motor, you can guesstimate that it will produce 2-4 CFM at 90 PSI for each HP. Is that close enough, or do you need the actual CFM?
I wasn’t able to find the HP of this model.
Please advise as a comment.
Sanborn B500BPL60V SCFM
The Sanborn Manual that came with this compressor gives discharge rate in SCFM. It is stated as follows:
40 PSI – 12,7 SCFM
90 PSI – 10.6 SCFM
Please keep in mind that conversion of SCFM to an actual output depends on ambient air density, I.e.: relative humidity and altitude.
