    Arrow Compressor Info Needed for Italian Gelato Case

    Hi I was wondering if anyone had dealt with an Italian Gelato case. I have a siezed compressor drawing LRA. The compressor is a Semi Hermetic pump kind of the same size as a Copeland K-Body. I don't think I'm going to get a direct replacement with the time and cost issues I have to deal with. I need the info on the OEM pump to get the capacity in order to know what Copeland to cross reference it to.

    Compressor INFO:
    Make _ DORIN
    M# H180CS/FB-UL
    S# 04070494C
    Thermal Protection PTC
    208/230V/3/60, 9,7/9.2A
    1.8HP 1750RPM UL SA 11929
    Oil POE 32 KGI
    Manufactures by Officnje Mario
    Dorin, Italy

    I don't have the make/Model info for the case it was worn off.

    if it's familiar does anyone know the little controller program? It looks as it may be similar to a lil Dixell controller maybe.

    TIA
    Mike

    Assuming R404A, use KALA016E-TAC Copeland Semi.

    sorry, i didn't specify that it was 404a, where do you get those ratings to say that is the proper copeland comp? are you basing that on Gelato SST and the 1.8Hp ratiing

    Did that calculator( I haven't used it before) just give you a model number, and say this is what you have and this is what WE have to match, or did it give specific BTU ratings at various SST & SCT's?

    in other words I can't trust an online calculator with out specific data!

    Gives you everything. Do a search "Icemiester" provided the link for the calculator.

    I was working on a Gelato case the other week by Vetrina Matrix Gelateria.

    Everything was in Italian. Info is probably impossible to come across in English. ( i found this old thread while looking for info too )

    Good thing I know basic refrigeration and troubleshooting skills...or else it woulda been a beeotch.

    Working on it sucked. It was almost as if they built it so you could never take it apart for repairs.

    I have replaced one of these dorin compressors with a Copeland K body before. All I did was contact my local Copeland rep to cross ref. Also, keep in mind that those Italians like using metric tubing too.

    I believe your in Canada right?
    There is a ISA distributor that may be able to help you. I don't know what they stock for parts, company is FAEMA. They are in Toronto. They may be able to get you literature as well on the controller. ISA parts are also stocked in the US by Taylor Freezer of New England and Taylor Freezer California.
