    Seeing how this unit is critical to the operation of the rig, my guess is the compressor had been running and short-cycling for who knows how long. It was ready to go before you got there. Let me guess. There was a piss-poor set of gauges and a drum of refrigerant sitting next to the unit and they had been dumping refrigerant into it to keep it running, right? Does the rig have an engineer onboard?

    Are you spying on me? Lol

    Nah.... No "IV" hooked up, but close. And I does run 24/7. I thought that perhaps the winding insulation was weak ... But what do I know? I just work here

    No, but I've been there, done that and bought the t-shirt. I wouldn't worry about it. Stuff happens, especially on rigs and boats. I've worked on them and you never know who did what to a piece of equipment before you get there.

    No backup system? Did they fly out another compressor?

    That's good. And I'm sure you checked it with your meter, right ? Was it running when you got there ? If so, maybe it was just your bad luck to come across a near-failure looking for somebody to dump on.

    I wish !!! 8800 feet of water.

    ****
    Come to find out, it's not good to pump a scroll down below 20-30 psi.... And who knows what those yahoos did before I got here .... So with the combined problems I think the quote " **** happens" fits in good...

    I do the occasional natural gas rig but its been a while.

    There is a demand for good offshore HVAC companies plus its such a pain you can charge them anything .

    The techs Ive had to go behind were butchers.
