    Compressor Core charges

    Went by uri to drop off a 06d core ,and was informed Copeland,Carlyle havenít charged a core in about a year and half. First Iíve heard but they hinted semiís weíre going the way of the dodo bird. Anyone else encountered this or got insight on the phase out of semiís?

    I picked up a 2 HP Copeland last November and was charges a core charge until the replacement came back.

    Going buy buy wouldn't surprise me. Scrolls are more flexible!

    our local RSD branch has a poster that has been up since last summer stating that they buy back semis in any condition. I think it s 75 bucks for core.

    We don't buy cores unless they are in high demand.
    You pay the core charge up front and get credit when it's returned. The industry is shifting to scrolls and TurboCor style magnetic bearing compressors.

    I remember seeing an ad saying they are looking for cores to come back. It was a Carlyle ad.

    We have bought a few rebuilds from American Compressor in Tennessee. They are hot to trot for some cores others are scrap.

    Semi cost to much to make and rebuilt plus with refrigerants like 410 think it might be at the upper limits of the head/ valve plate gasket limits. Semi's haven't rebuilt one in three years, screws nobody field rebuilds them- might change a gasket or clean a screen. Customers want everything fix yesterday can't and won't wait.

    I wen't to a Carrier semi class in the early 90's. There was a rebuilding company in Phoenix where we went to see the rebuild process. They predicted they would not be doing semi's in the future. The scroll would replace the semi's (scrolls were fairly new then). They were off a bit on the timing.
    There are a number of rebuilding companies still active and the demand seems to be there.
    Re-Manufactured was a better word for the work the company did.

    Was hoping remanworld would chime in the biggest inconvenience will be draining the oil before it gets tossed in metal bin
