OVERVIEW

Resolute Industrial is the exclusive OEM authorized source for remanufactured YORK screw compressors for YORK air cooled chillers and the preferred source for all YORK reciprocating compressors. We also remanufacture the YR line of YORK® screw compressors for water cooled chillers. In addition to Resolute’s remanufactured offerings, the company also manufactures fully new screw compressors for any of its re-manufactured screw compressor model offerings. The Resolute Industrial compressor business was formed through the sale of Johnson Controls YORK®brand compressor remanufacturing business. Resolute continues to manufacture and re-manufacture to the same standards in effect under the previous Johnson Controls/YORK® ownership using only factory approved parts and engineering certified processes.

OUR PRODUCTS & PROCESSES

Our remanufacturing process demands a complete tear down of every returned compressor. Each part is rigorously inspected to determine suitability for reconditioning and reuse. Only parts passing this critical inspection process are reused. Otherwise new parts are used to complete the parts needed for a re-manufactured compressor. All remanufactured compressors undergo a thorough bench testing procedure to assure that they are ready for service and the records of every test are maintained at our manufacturing facility. We are so confident in the quality of our remanufactured products that we offer the same warranty as our new compressors. Extended warranties can also be purchased for both re-manufactured and new products. We set the bar for quality for YORK® remanufactured compressors.

RESPONSE

We maintain ready-to-ship shelf stock on most of our screw and reciprocating compressor models in order to quickly respond to our customers’ needs in dealing with critical emergency repairs. We also maintain sufficient parts stock to turn around any orders for non-stocked compressors generally in a matter of days when parts are on hand. Availability of very infrequently sought compressors used in YORK® chillers decades ago, may be longer due to scarcity of key components. We understand the criticality of compressor replacement, and that drives our commitment to exceptional quality and availability. Every compressor is securely skidded and packaged in efforts to assure that it gets to you damage free.

A WIDE RANGE OF YORK BRAND COMPRESSORS

AN EXACTING WORLD-CLASS RE-MANUFACTURING PROCESS

1. RECEIVING

receivingThe first destination of a returned compressor when it comes off the truck is the receiving dock. Compressors are received in a wide range of physical appearances and mechanical conditions.

2.  TEARDOWN

teardownFrom receiving, the compressor proceeds to our teardown department. In this department every machine is completely disassembled and reviewed for the root cause of failure. All parts are then initially assessed for re-usability.

3.  WASHING

washingCompressors are then put through one of two parts washing cabinets. Dirt, paint, oil and soot are removed during this wash process. Raw blocks are blown dry and undergo the first inspection for signs of damage.

4.   CLEANING SYSTEM

cleaning-systemOnce the parts are completely dry they are then put through our large Viking shot blast cabinet to further remove imperfections that have adhered to the raw parts. Rust, copper slag and paint are removed at this time. Gasket and o-ring surfaces are not affected by this process.

5.   PRE-ASSEMBLY

Once the production manager calls for a compressor to be built, the parts are then staged for pre-assembly. Blocks undergo a fine cleaning by hand to remove any leftover residue. At this stage the final inspection of parts is performed. Parts are pulled and staged for the assembly area and rotors get their bearing races.

6.   ASSEMBLY PROCESS

assembly-processAssembly is performed in different cells on the manufacturing line. Some compressors are built from the ground up by the same technician. Higher demand compressors go through a series of cells where technicians assemble their own part of the compressor. The cell divisions allow compressors to be built from start to finish with no delays in the assembly operation. Each technician in the process is trained, tested, and certified.

7.   FINISHED ASSEMBLY

finished-assenblyOnce the assembly process is complete, the compressors are skidded and transported to our leak test station. All compressors are assembled using the same best practices, whether it is a remanufactured compressor or a completely new machine. All parts are inspected and tested to OEM standards.

8.   LEAK TEST

leak-testIn our leak test station the compressors are submerged in water tank which is fitted with lighting. The compressors are filled with dry nitrogen to the maximum working pressure (MWP) and inspected for bubbles, which would indicate a leak. Leaks can be found from o-ring glands and gasket surfaces. Even porosity in the casting can be found with underwater testing.

9.   TEST PANEL

test-panelFrom our leak test stand the compressor proceeds to our air-run test stand. The compressor is mounted to a table and piped for suction and discharge readings. The unit is electrically tested at the test stand prior to running to validate proper hook-up. In the process, pressure, temperature, oil flow and power consumption are tested and recorded. A report is generated on the parameters of the test, and this test documentation is kept on file at the manufacturing plant.

10.   VACUUM TEST

vacuum-testEach compressor goes through a two step leak checking process. Earlier the compressor was submerged in water and checked for bubbles, this time the compressor is pulled down into a deep vacuum and held in the vacuum for a stated amount of time. Compressors  that fail to go into a deep vacuum,or rise above the acceptable threshold are sent back for rework. Once the compressor has passed testing, it is filled with 5 psig of dry nitrogen to ensure that no moisture re-enters the compressor.

11.   PAINTING

paintingCompressors are painted in our in-house paint booth in one of two colors, black or York® Caribbean Blue.

12.   COMPRESSOR SKIDDED

compressor-skiddedOnce the paint is dry, the compressor is bolted to a shipping skid. Skids are reinforced with metal runners to ensure that the heavy compressors do not come loose or break boards on the skid during transportation. Skids are affixed to the compressor prior to storage to expedite the shipping process.

13.   COMPRESSOR (READY TO SHIP)

compressor-ready-to-shipAt this final stage labels have been installed, documentation has been affixed to the compressor, motor leads have been protected and the machine has been banded and wrapped for shipment.
