    need a condensing unit for a weber coffin type freezer.(weber)

    weber is out of business and the condensing unit is wrong and really old heres some numbers:

    unit: weber coffin type freezer # C-TV-12IC/ Ser#1R102816
    compressor is a 90-1.50 a medium temp compressor

    the condensing unit really needs to be trashed..freezer is 60' away from condenser and line sets are under ground.

    like all my customers this guys broke.

    I couldn't even find a mention of Weber, so no info seems likely.

    Based on single deck frozen food or ice cream case from 30 years ago, they generally required 450-500 Btuh/ft so between 5400-6000 Btuh at -25F SST for frozen foods (or -35F SST for ice cream) should work OK for a 12 footer.

    Is this a Copeland semi-hermetic compressor? If so it is from the 60's with that part number 90-150. The current compressor number is an EAB?-015A-??? which is a MT12 or LT502 compressor.

    The 90-150 (EAB-0150) is a MT12/LT502 compressor as I stated but the LT502 use is an alternative application for which I cannot find any btuh specs.

    Based on it's CFH and the S.W.A.G theory I would guess it's LT502 btuh's are very close to what Icemeister listed.

    I've had very good experience with the newer hermetic low temp units...and they save a boatload of money.

    Look at a Copeland FJAL-B301-TFC.

    A 3 HP unit does appear to be big for this application...if you're comparing it to what the semihermetics will do...but going by the estimated loads I stated of 5400-6000 Btuh at -25F SST for frozen food (or -35F for ice cream) the FJAL-B301 would be the one to go with.

    While the FJAL-A225, at a rated 5380 Btuh at -25F SST is a tad shy of what we need for FF, it's close enough that it might work OK...but I'd feel a lot better with a little extra, especially when you consider that we're taking a wild guess at what the load really is for that old case.
