Nowadays, an increasing number of organizations are endorsing the concept of 3Rs: “reduce, reuse, recycle.” But several independent remanufacturers like Compressors Unlimited have already taken this concept one step further.
At Compressors Unlimited, for instance, our remanufactured AC compressors fit a variety of air-conditioning applications, protect precious resources and eliminate harmful emissions, while saving time, energy and money.
Now, let’s take a closer look at the financial and environmental benefits a remanufactured commercial AC compressor can provide.
Improving Comfort Levels and Air Quality with Minimum Investment
Remanufacturing a commercial AC compressor doesn’t require the same raw materials and energy as original manufacturing. This translates into several financial “rewards” for our customers, including:
A lower initial cost
In addition to requiring smaller amounts of energy and raw materials, a remanufactured commercial AC compressor contains parts that have possibly been recycled but still meets OEM specifications. Using recycled parts often generates hefty savings that we pass along to our customers.
In remanufacturing, commercial AC compressors are completely disassembled and cleaned. All the parts, including crankshaft, pistons, rods and liners, are examined for wear and breakage. Defective parts are replaced with new components that meet the latest OEM specifications.
One of the greatest advantages is that while certain components improve the capabilities of the compressor—and of the air conditioning’s system, implicitly—others extend its service life, further contributing to cost savings on maintenance, repairs and replacements. By opting for a remanufactured commercial AC compressor, therefore, you can get additional capabilities without incurring any extra costs.
Our remanufacturing process involves a complete disassembly and reassembly of every compressor in order to ensure that it is remanufactured to the latest OEM standards.
Since a remanufactured compressor must meet the same requirements as a new one, we test all of our compressors for compliance with OEM performance specifications. For our customers’ peace of mind, our remanufactured compressors are also backed up by a comprehensive 12-month warranty, irrespective of their make and model.
The Environmental Benefits of Using a Remanufactured Commercial AC Compressor
Manufacturing an AC compressor from scratch involves the use of a variety of materials and a tremendous amount of energy. Although smaller commercial AC compressor designs have been developed in order to reduce total energy and material requirements typically associated with the manufacturing process, raw materials still need to be processed into finished parts and accessories. This results in a large amount of waste and pollutants.
Compared to a new compressor, remanufacturing an AC compressor implies using recycled components. This eliminates certain areas of the supply chain and some of the costs, while reducing the waste resulting from the disposal of decommissioned equipment and spare parts inventories.
Thus, a remanufactured commercial AC compressor contributes toward reducing the amount of pollution and waste in landfills, minimizing the impact on the environment.
At Compressors Unlimited, we make available a wide range of remanufactured commercial AC compressors as well as parts and accessories from leading manufacturers, such as Carrier, Copeland, Trane, York, Bitzer, Frascold, Danfoss and Hitachi.
