Hello, I am considering purchasing an ingersoll rand type 30 model 242.

My question is how can I figure out the motor HP, and compressor CFM from the metal tag plate?

I have a 242-5c and was told by IR that it was a factory 5hp 230v single phase, and produces about 14 cfm. Try giving them a call.

Take a look at the posts on the T-30 page re this machine, and that should give you some idea.
