    Carlyle 06N Compressors Rebuilt by CMP Corp. - any good?

    Good morning,
    We service an account with five Carrier chillers, two 30HXCs and three 30HXAs. Two of the air-cooled chillers have one bad compressor each - one shorted to ground and one with a nasty sound to it (need to dig into it a bit more before condemning it).
    I know CMP Corporation rebuilds the 06N screw compressors. Does anyone have experience with those? I read that the 06Ns are pretty much impossible to rebuild on your own. Is CMP any better at it?

    Don’t have an answer to your question, but I do know they are not field serviceable due to the precision clearances.

    You should check into the CMP warranty before you proceed. If there is a problem with the compressor who pays to ship it back? Who determines if it's a warranty or not? Who pays to get the replacement back to the job site? How long before you GET a replacement? We do not reman Carlyle screws because almost every one that fails damages the casting inside where it can't be seen. It is our opinion that the damaged can't be repaired. How do they do it? On the other hand, we DO reman Bitzer screws but they are a much better design. Good luck.

    GOOD information remanworld . A compressor rebuild is ONLY AS good as the person performing the repair . I have rebuilt compressors from 1/3 HP to 5000 TON centifugals and I will state ONE ( 1 ) thing when I hit the GO button they have started and made temperature . ( even the STEAM DRIVEN ONES )
