Compressor needed

I am looking for a compact air compressor.
It needs to be in the 500 to 700 HP range, and run direct drive.
I would hope to have high pressure, IE multi stage to 4500 PSI. The compressor I am looking for would fit in a 3' x 3' x 3' box.

If anyone has any ideas please let me know.

Oh yeah?
Well that's interesting because i am looking for a battery that puts out
500 to 700 volts at 4500 amps, and the one i am looking for would
fit in a box 3 inches by 3 inches by 3 inches.

Couldn't resist :)

Even at 50 -70 Hp you wont fit it in a 3 ft cube!
The typical 50 hp 3450 RPM three phase motor is around 3 feet long and two feet across by itself.
However three stage compressor units that do 4500+ PSI are fairly common and can typically be found in dive shops. They are used for filling the air tanks for scuba diving.
They are around 5 -10 hp and some could fit in a 3 ft cube.

A 500 -700 hp multi stage would be about the size of a mid sized bus!

You know, its threads like this that just leave me in awe. I wonder if the poster logs on once in a while just to laugh as everyone scratches their heads trying to figure out the riddle that he's posted. haha
