    I would like to know what type of bridge rectifier i need to purchase to achieve currents of 30 to 50 amps.

    At those currents you might want to consider individual stud mounted diodes.

    The MDA3500 is in the ballpark but probably not quite up to 50 A continuous to a resistive load. I've used this before a to supply a couple of stepper motors with 8V @25 A

    Edit: This part might be obsolete and no longer available
