Compressor Remanufacturing

We arrange the lift and shift, then remanufacture your compressor in our work shop:

Strip Down
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
