I have an old Organ Supply catalog from 1978 that has specifications for various Orgoblos. For two-stage units, at 1150rpm or 1750rpm, 1HP is shown to deliver 660 cubic feet per minute at = 5" pressure. (That is to say, the actual static pressure will be somewhat higher, perhaps 7", so that you could expect to actually voice the = pipework on 5". Such was Spencer's way of describing their machines.)   A quick attempt at conversion suggests that 660cfm is 18.7 cubic meters = per minute. I'd guess that there are great similarities between the 1921 and 1978 units! If anything, perhaps, the 1921 "horses" might have been a bit more powerful!   Larry Chace
