Trane Compressor Leak...Is it fixable?
We have a Trane CGWD050GCONT101 Chiller in our building. One of the two circuits is down at the moment, as the 15 ton compressor (Model CSHS150J0HOF) has a rather large leak on the suction fitting, which is pretty rusty. My question is this: Is it possible to repair just the suction fitting? All the quotes we have received so far have been to replace the entire compressor, at a very large expense. I just want to know if it is even possible to repair it, as that seems like it would cost less than replacing the whole (otherwise perfectly good) compressor. The model they have quoted for replacement is a CSHA150R0*00. I have also received a quote for a Danfoss at about 2/3rds the price.
Thanks in advance for your advice!
