    Hi,
    Can someone tell me the difference between the first stages of the ATX50 and ATX100? I can't seem to find out.

    Thanks,

    Darryl

    Here's their website:

    The 200's first stage is a totally new design. The second stages (ATX50 & ATX200) are almost identical except for the size of the heat exchanger.

    Oops, I meant whats the difference between the 100 and 50, not the 200 and 50. I did read that the 200 was completely redesigned.

    The 50 has a swival and the 100 doesn't. Both are sealed and balanced and both are very good breathers. I like the 100 better than the 50. Again, the second stages are virtually identical to each other.
