Semi-Hermetic HVAC Compressor Rebuild Shop

These old semi hermetic HVAC compressors are destined for the rebuild shop where they will see new life one day in a chiller or DX air conditioning system. If a business loses a compressor for whatever reason (usually burnout) they have the option of ordering a new compressor from the factory or calling a rebuild shop to see if they have a rebuilt reciprocating compressor that will will replace the old one, or rebuilding the bad compressor. This leaves the business the option of finding the best value or cost for replacing the compressor. These are semi-hermetic reciprocating compressors and can be tore down and rebuilt completely nearly like new.

These HVAC compressors are old inoperable compressors. They are semi-hermetic compressors and are easily rebuilt whereas hermetic compressors are not rebuilt. These air conditioning compressors are used mainly in commercial applications for DX cooling. Many of these air conditioning compressors have either failed mechanically or electrically. They are stored because they can be easily rebuilt. If a service company finds a failed compressor in an old HVAC air conditioner they call the compressor company to see if the company has one in stock. The compressor rebuilding company checks their stock and if they do in fact have the compressor in stock they pull it from the rack. The air conditioner compressor is pulled off the rack, disassembled, cleaned, and all new parts are replaced. It is reassembled and painted to look new. It is delivered to the location where the failed air conditioner compressor was discovered and is installed in the old failed air conditioning compressors place. The old failed air conditioning compressor is placed back on the rack where the new rebuilt compressor used to sit.

DX cooling systems use compressors like these old failed compressors. These air conditioner compressors fail for various reasons and among the reasons for an air conditioning compressor failure is neglect in preventive maintenance practices. Proper preventive maintenance can save repair dollars. These compressors are not cheap so it is important to maintain a good air conditioning preventive maintenance schedule.
