Our Compressor Remanufacturing Process

tn_119_1984What do you mean by compressor remanufacturing?

Remanufacturing is the process of restoring a used compressor to a condition that is as close to new as possible. The compressor must be completely disassembled, cleaned, and inspected. The integrity of the basic “core” parts – block, shaft, rods etc.- are closely inspected and checked against original equipment manufacturers specifications. They are remachined to bring them back to specification to return the remanufactured engine to original equipment tolerances.

Wearable parts such as bearings, rings, pistons and gaskets are replaced. The completed compressor is tested for compliance with normal operating standards. And the entire compress is then remanufactured and performance tested to insure the unit achieves the same functional performance as a band new unit.

Our Process for Remanufacturing Includes:

« All cores are disassembled completely and run through a caustic bath, then pressure washed and dried

« All parts are inspected and qualified; they are discarded if they do not meet proper specifications.

« Stators are re-wound in house by our motor winder.

« Cranks are inspected and brought to a machine shop for grinding if necessary

« All compressors are test run in our shop. The data is recorded and kept on file.

« The machines are pressure tested, deep vacuumed, and then charged with nitrogen.

We believe that there is only one way to build a quality compressor – the RIGHT WAY. At Southern Compressors we are dedicated to providing quality and professionalism every step of the way. And for us that means never cutting corners and doing things right – the first time.
