    240v 60hz compressor's on 240v 50hz supply



    Hi All

    Can anyone confirm, if you fitted an 60hz compressor on 50hz supply, would the 60hz compressor run slower, hotter with less capacity than the identical model if it was 240v 50hz?.

    And while im asking would this be the case vice-versa??

    Thanks for taking the time to read this.

    All the best!!!!!!!

    Difference between 60hz and 50hz is 17%, it affects speed and capacity.
    Watt draw will remain almost the same.
