Trane Centrifugal Chiller Overhaul
Sr. Technician Albert Deblock reassembling a 500 ton Trane chiller during an overhaul service. The rear motor bearing on this chiller was beginning to fail displaying high tin in the oil sample and an abnormal vibration reading taken during preventative maintenance. Preventative maintenance on large tonnage chillers is essential to their long service life and to avoid unscheduled down time. Thermetrics technicians were able to identify the chiller’s problem and perform the necessary repairs to avoid more costly component failure. Trane chiller overhaul repairs require extensive knowledge of compressor design, proper rigging, and special tools to ensure safe disassembly and re-assembly of the Trane chiller’s compressor.
