    Lifting/Rigging Tool´s for Trane CVHF 1280 Compressor teardown/overhaul.

    Can anybody help me out with lifting tool equipment for cvhf 1280 compressor?

    The bulletin CTVH-GCO-03 refers to this manuals: CTVH-GMS-01 and CTVH-GMO-01...(Cant´t find).

    I already have the drawings to pull out the first stage inlet guide vanes assembly...

    I need the drawing´s for the suction cover lifting tool and the 2nd guide vane assembly.


    Thanx!!!

    Come on man, having all the proper tools takes all the fun out of it. Seriously though I think the hardest thing is pulling the first stage vane assembly and it sounds like you have that covered. There are a few examples of vane pullers here

    my post was # 21 and there is a pretty good tool in post #24. Everything else pretty straightforward, some shackles on the top of the suction cover and a couple of eye bolts where the suction ell bolts up and your good to go. Just have plenty of chain and guide pins.

    I don't think trane even puts out the vane lifting tool or the casing tools anymore. I use shackles, straps, and lifting chains. You should really go to school on these & get some instruction. A 1280 ton ain't a little machine, the components are heavy. Be cautious.

    Chain with chain hooks for the donuts and creativity for everything else, it's really straight forward the worst part is finding where to hang the block if you don't have room for a gantry.

    To pull the vane assembly you can use an 8' 4x4 lodged between the vanes, use a strap as close to the vane assembly as possible(attached to your 4x4 and your chainfall as your fulcrum point). Have some one hold the far end of your 4x4 and loosen your set screws. Just be ready that the vane assembly will just slide out and the 4x4 will take the weight. If the person holding the 4x4 puts a little load on it, it won't be as surprising. I found this in an old document and can send you if needed.

    I agree with txhvac. Those rigging tools are just something else heavy to get up in the air. Slide that suction cover back with guides and put the chain through the inside.
    I like your rigging tools triggerhappy. Putting those steel beams up always suck though.

    The tools for the Trane chillers are nice.

    This is a 1280 I did about 11 years ago. Had to build a permanent structure around the chiller rated for at least 7,000 Lbs. Enough to suport motor and Discharge volute at same time, everything had to come off the suction el end of chiller. Good times!

    In looking at the picture of the suction elbow rigging I noticed something in the way the hooks are attached into the straps. Maybe I am not quite seeing the whole thing but I would have turned those hooks over down into the straps. That way the side loading angle would not pull toward the open side clasp. Anyone else agree or am I not looking at this correctly. One thing for sure, you have to respect those CV teardown situations. Looks like you had a challenge there.

    Does anyone know of a part number for the threaded taper pins? I think they look like a #8, but I didn't know if Trane actually has a part number, since they don't show them in the manual. Thanks!

    Being a chiller mechanic is more than brushing tubes and changing oil filters.

    Trane does have a part number ; I think it maybe " PIN008 " .That should be the tapered pin threaded with nut ; as opposed to a smooth tapered pin .
