When you are searching for your 50 hp compressor, remember to ask about the controls. “How does the control system work?” Especially when you are buying a used 50 hp compressor. The older compressors had modulation controls and were very inefficient. For example, at 50% of full load the motor was operating at 89% bhp. Newer machines run with load/no load controls with timed shutdown. Ask one of our compressed air experts to see which compressor would work best for your application; 866.778.6572.
