We arrange the lift and shift, then remanufacture your compressor in our work shop:
All the parts are laid out on the bench and the bolts immersed in oil
All parts are inspected for wear and tear and a list of required replacement parts is written
When the parts come in, we re-build the compressor using new gaskets and ‘o’ rings
The Clearance of the Bearing We check this with a feeler gauge and ‘lap’ the bearing where necessary. Not enough oil lubrication will reduce its life
The ‘Run-out’ of the Shaft We check this with a ‘thou clock’ If the shaft is not spinning true this will also reduce the life of the bearing
Re-assembly The reverse of the strip-down. All screws are tightened to the correct torque with a torque wrench. The compressor is then pressure tested and de-hydrated with a vacuum pump. The correct amount of oil is drawn in- usually whatever the level was when it came in, or half way up the sight glass.
Last but not least part of the repair- the compressor is sanded down and re-painted battle ship grey
