View Full Version : 19XR Tear Downs
01-12-2006, 05:28 PM
I over see Critical data operations centers. We need to spec a tear down procedure for a 19XR. We want to be sure that local rep completes the entire necessary tear down procedures correctly. I want to use the prescribed Carrier procedures for this equipment tear down. Knowing this board has discussed this before but unable to get the info I need, can someone please submit to me a RFP I can issue to the vendor or provide a Carrier Doc I can reference to draft the RFP doc?
Thanks In advance

If you use Carrier or trane factory service, they will have trained people to provide the service you need.

Using the OEM is always an option.
I get the impression from your post that the contractor is not OEM.
Thats not a problem as long as the contractor is capable of doing the work.
I don't work for a mfr but I've done alot of teardowns.
The contractor doing the work shoud have no problem showing you the "stop major" so that you can have an idea of whats going on.
I also get the impression from your post that you may not have complete confidence in the contractor.
Thats not a good position to be in at this point in the game.
You can check chillergroup.com & maybe there is a contractor in your area that is a member.
You should be able to get whatever you need from any of them in the way of maintenance or teardown services.
You wouldn't happen to have a 19XL & a 19DG at this facility would you?(along with the 19XR)
If so, check my profile & e-mail me, if not, no response to that question is necessary.

Sign up for and attend a teardown seminar for this machine at the Carrier facility in Syracuse, and you will not only obtain the factory literature you are seeking, but also you will understand the process.

I appreciate the input. I am working with the local Carrier rep wouldn't have it any other way. In the buisness we are in due diligence is a must. We have a 24*7 operation with no tolerance for down time. Working on gear as sensitive and critical as this requires exacting standards and we must be sure no bearing or sleeve is left unchecked. I can't allow this job to be done twice.

The easiest way to get the stop/major spec for a guy in your position is to contact your carrier salesman. Usually you can get whatever lit. you need. They dont want to piss of a potential future sale on a new machine. Do a little carrot dangleing. It the plant carries an ISO cert you probally have to have the procedure on file anyway.

Why not use Carrier Commercial Service who knows your equipment and has engineering to go back on if anything odd comes up. Who ever you hire to do the job check to see if they done a number of the chillers you have. Are you going to be looking over thier shoulder with a manual to see if they skip a step? All techs do things different and still be right. Anything mechanical can fail at any time. My main question is do you have a back up chiller? If not is your piping set up easy enough for a temporary chiller?
I do work at nuclear power plant and chemical plant that will only use factory service on critical equipment because of the available sources the tech has at his finger tips and having the special tools needed.
Also even if using a Carrier tech I would make sure they have done your type of chiller a few times.
