compressor break & turning torque

HECAT on Tue July 01, 2008 4:44 PM User is offline

I hate getting old!

Did someone here post a chart of compressors, listing the breakaway and turning torque specs? Or did I see it posted on another forum. I could use the data in some consulting research (I knew I should have saved it). If it was someone here, please re-post or redirect me to the post it can be found in.

Thanks, KARL

MACS did a study a few months ago about 'break away' torque for compressor rotation...is this what you are in reference .....let me know....I shall located the article.

Anything you may have will help. Call me today, when you can; tel. (800) 380-9501.

Like I said, it may have been a post elsewhere. Someone had questioned what the correct turning torque should be as the compressor they had seemed very difficult to turn. A responding post listed a chart of breakaway and turning torque values for many different compressors; and I am truly kicking myself for not saving it.

Are you talking about checking during compressor replacement or draw on an engine?

A general rule during replacement is:
New - 12-17ft/lbs.
Rblt - 10-15ft/lbs.

I love this site! I thought you were talking about bolt torques yesterday. Interesting to know the turning torque of a compressor. Is this with a non-charged system or charged?

My figures are for a bench test. I don't have the figures for running mode. That sure would be nice to know for us rod builders though.

I found the info Iceman referenced to. I think you will need a MACS membership to access from their web site.

www.macsw.org
see Macs Service Reports
its in the Oct. 2007 report.
