    So are they building it ?
    Arguing with your Boss is like wrestling with a pig in
    mud.
    After a while you realize that while you are getting
    dirty, the pig is actually enjoying it.

    It is not exactly cheating, I prefer to consider it
    creative problem solving.

    seems like a lot of salesman are going to have to eat their words after trashing magnetic bearings chillers for the last seven or so years. now what will york call an overhaul, changing capacitors? overhaul used to be just that, then an overhaul was the new buzzword for winterwork. with no oil, i guess overheaul will either mean punching tubes, or replacing capacitors. I stand by my feeling that this technology will be the wave of the future, and give them some credit for finally believing that. its a shame they didnt innovate the use, or even give credit to those who did.

    Not surprising York's experience with magnetic bearing compressor technology goes way back before the current manufacturer who markets themselves as introducing this technology to the HVAC industry.

    Hate to bust any bubbles, but York has been in the maglev game long before anyone else
    just like the VFD on a chiller, been there done that.
    Might not have been making small tonnage stuff like
    T/C and McQ but the mighty M compressor in process
    has been churning on mag lev for years. People bash JC
    but York ain't dead and if you think they are you might
    be in for a suprise or 2.
    No disrespect intended for any ex old school
    York boys there either
    Superheat, that must be REALLY hot.

    Looks like york likes wasting R+D money,mcquay beat them to it by using someone elses design for large tonnage machines.

    I like the way JCI says they have been behind the developement of this for years when the truth of the matter is that York has been , who's BS'ing who.

    Technology is a great thing, but with every advance, I see less work for us in the future.
