This one is from last summer. We get a call a week before school starts - "Thieves stole our a/c piping, can you give us a price to replace it?" It turns out we were the only ones to respond.
One look at this sign and we should have run.
This is what we found. Hot gas and liquid lines are broken off at the building and the condenser headers are gone. FWIW, this is a McQuay 220 ton air cooled condenser.
First, the coil had to be supported and then we chopped, sawed, hacked the tubes down to the tube sheet.
Then we removed the tube sheets (which also support the condenser fans) and peeled away enough fins to work with the tubes. The new hot gas headers are almost done.
This is pretty much what we ended up with.
