    CRAC Shaft

    Anyone every replace a Liebert CRAC fan shaft before? Looks like you have to remove from the top? I have one that bearings are being replaced and just in case looking for some input if things go awry.

    A model # or series would help some of the deluxe 3 I’ve pulled from the side no fun at all.

    If it is a upflow with the fans in the top section, we lift the whole assem out from the top with chain falls, never done a shaft just bearings.

    No we had a flex collar up above where the 3 supplys came off , so once that was gone, up came the fan assem. It helped out with all the unit strut up above the crac unit. Just doing bearings about 5 hours.
