Bigger Air Compressors

Need to get a compressor that'll do 30 scfm at 90 PSI. Everything Ive been reading gives specs at max psi, what's the best way to find out the scfm rating at a lower PSI then max?

Also, any brand recommendations and/or vendors?

Ingersoll Rand UP6-7.5-125.230-1 7.5-HP 80-Gallon Rotary Screw Air Compressor 230V 1 Phase 125PSI

Ingersoll Rand 2545K10VP-200 10-HP 120-Gallon Two-Stage Air Compressor 208V 3-Phase Value Plus Package

This one looks to be a bargain for what it offers:
35 CFM @ 175 PSI

What budget?
What power?
How large of tank?

I was looking at that second one actually, but how the hell do I figure out if it does that much air at 90psi? That 3rd one looks good, never heard of that company though.

Budget is as cheap as possible, without getting into shit quality

240v 3-phase

Dont know, this is to operate a canning line, only requirements for the compressor is 30scfm @ 90 psi.

You're starting a canning line? Outstanding!

Gotta remember to wear my shirt at least one day when I'm down in Alpharetta in a month.

It will do 175 PSI @ 35 CFM -- you don't regulate that down to 90 at the compressor you add the 90 PSI regulator 'in-line' so you have more air reserve in the tank and lines up to regulator.

Cool. Sounds like business is doing well. Hoping to partake of a pint or three when I'm down there again.

Different trip schedule this time, hit the ground on Monday, fly back out on Saturday. Probably a Monday or Thursday night. Tuesday & Wednesday will probably be late nights working. The work has been scaled back, so things might change.

Order one that does 30 at max so it isn't running all the time. Get as big of a tank and as many tanks as you can fit.
If you're in production setting that is using 30cfm 24/7 you might consider a rotary screw.
It might make sense to have two smaller compressors, one runs constantly and the other nurses it.

I've never seen that. All the tandem setups I've seen put each compressor on a 50% duty cycle. One runs for a few min before switching until pressure is back up. Whichever compressor was idle at shutdown is the one that powers on first next time.

Brewers Burger was my drunk creation, I love that thing. New place is on the GA/NC border in Franklin. State doesnt allow you to own a brewery and brewpub.

When the IR one runs for 3 weeks and dies and then takes a month to send out someone to look at it and order the parts...

Maybe it is? (not likely) but I will almost guarantee you will be using it.

It is all about lack of downtime and reliability. I can never understand why someone will try to save a buck when it will wind up costing them 100x what they saved when they need it most.

Buy what you want, just let us know when it shits the bed so we can laugh at you. Throw an hour meter on what ever you buy also.

Gawd, that is a *MESSY* burger. But tasty.

Jittery Chris, Frankenstrong & Hellfire around the table for dinner. All good.
