The goal of this course is to train field personnel to identify and correct the causes of compressor failure so that repeated failures are eliminated. The program includes: Introduction to Carlyle Compressors; models 06D and 06E familiarization and operation; reciprocating compressor failure diagnosis, teardown, and analysis; system diagnostics; procedures to prevent repeat failures. Students tear down and analyze field-returned failed compressors.

Course Objectives:

  • Read and interpret Carrier model and serial numbers to obtain useful information
  • Explain purpose of compressor components and how compression and lubrication systems operate
  • Define various failure modes and explain sequence of events that can lead to failure
  • Evaluate oil quantity, quality, and condition; explain causes of rust at various shell locations, recognize overheated bearings and heads, measure and evaluate motor winding resistance values, recognize the difference between good and bad; bearing surfaces, valves, valve plates and gaskets
  • Relate physical characteristics to possible causes and then determine underlying cause of failures

A cumulative score of 70% is required to pass this course. The score is a combination of attendance, class participation, and a demonstration of skills and knowledge through quizzes and/or work sessions.
