1. Software to assist you in identifying
and ordering your compressor
on Remanufacturing (below)
is the way we remanufacture compressors:
compressor is completely disassembled. Sub-assemblies are further
disassembled into their component parts.
question, all bearings, gaskets, piston rings, and valve reeds
are discarded, as well as any components that do not pass the
of the remaining metal components are cleaned. All oxides, corrosion,
sludge, wear product and lubricants and disposed of appropriately.
Each component is sorted and inspected for stress and wear. Any
component that does not meet or exceed factory specifications,
or is not capable of being refurbished, is discarded.
our extensive machine shop expertise, all components that require
refurbishing such as cylinder honing, cylinder liner replacement,
precision surface grinding of valve seats, bearing pressing, etc..
are handled in our plant. (Crankshaft grinding, and chrome
plating is handled by outside vendors specializing in that field.)
this point, all components must pass visual, chemical, and machine
inspection requirements that meet or exceed specified tolerances.
component assemblies (Piston/rod , oil pump, valve, capacity control
devices etc.. are sub-assembled and checked prior to installation
in the compressor housing.)
motors (stators) that are intact, are subjected to a series of
visual electrical and mechanical tests to determine their suitability
for reuse. Any stator that fails these tests is completely stripped
of the original wire varnish & insulation. After testing the
stator iron for appropriate magnetic properties and quality, new
hermetic insulation and magnet wire is installed and tested. The
entire stator assembly is immersed in a quality hermetic approved
epoxy varnish for through saturation. Next the stator assembly
is baked in a controlled oven for proper curing. Afterwards further
electrical tests are performed prior to installation in the compressor.
tolerances are adhered to during the assembly of the compressor.
Fasteners are torqued to factory specifications.
assembly every compressor is checked for leaks to assure appropriate
completion of the assembly process, every compressor is leak tested
to assure that they are "gas tight".
proper quantity and viscosity, per the manufacturer's specifications,
of refrigeration lubricant is added. Specific lubricants can be
added per customer request. We can ship any compressor without
lubricant if so desired.
compressor is run tested. The amperage Draw, oil pressure valve
operation, capacity control operation, etc are recorded on a unique
assembly traveler document which is serialized and matched for
testing each compressor is pressurized with 30 psi of dry nitrogen.
compressor is painted with a quality paint to protect the metal
finish and enhance appearance. Special coatings are applied when
appropriate for extreme environments.
customize each compressor per customer requirements. Our goal
is to have the compressor arrive at the customers location without
need for modification.
Hermetic Compressors are remanufactured as replacements equal
to factory authorized remanufactured compressors.
