    Trane Screw Compressor Leak.

    Hey Guys, I have a CHHN compressor with a housing leak. I want to change the Oring. I have a good idea whats involved in the repair. I think the bulletin I'm looking for is RTAA-SVB12A-EN. If someone has it, could you please send it over to me, I would really appreciate it.
    Thanks

    Unless you have a large leak at the discharge bearing housing, you have about a 50/50 chance of stopping any small leaks by changing the o-ring. I don't usually recommend to my customers to spend money on attempting to repair such small leakage. The cost vs. success isn't justified in my opinion. Is it a righteous write up, probably, but after years of working on them, I would be careful on your approach.

    If you use a light film of loctite 515 in the new O'ring (not in the o'ring grove) the leak will be gone for sure.

    not too bad of a repair, split the housing, use loctite 515 on new oring and you can seal it up.
