    don't know. the wheel wasn't pitted like carry over. the boys in the chiller forum surmised metal fatigue.
    and Bret, Art, it is the impeller out of a single stage, 1000ton york OT centrifugal. The wheel was $30k, and it was repaired around the clock, took 8 days, 2 men per shift.
    The machine had vibration, the perferred mechanical contractor said the isolation springs under the machine were worn out and needed replacement. (hahahahahahahaaahha)

    Hey guys, my last day is Thursday I start my new job in Kansas on Monday so I'm going to spend a couple days at the lake and river enjoying the peace and serenity of the county. I don't have a house yet so I won't be around for awhile untill I get settled in. Well take care everyone and Frank I'll give you a shout when I get around K.C.

    Not positive. A cooler is a refrigerant flooded vessel, and between the impeller and the refrigerant are usually baffles to minimize liquid carry over into the impeller eye. Carryover etches the wheel, kinda like sand blasting. This one wasn't a victim of that. Neither were this one, brand new, hand grenaded before machine came up to speed, and took out the second wheel and the casting These are approx. 4' in diameter, 40k apiece, and difficult to obtain (8 months) due to age of machine and the fact this country doesn't build anything anymore.
