View Full Version : Trane 2E5K61N compressor loading / unloading

29-12-2013, 10:00 PM
We have been asked to convert a Trane 2E5K61N compressor to have 3 stages of unloading / loading, at present it has none.
Does anyone have a list of what parts are required and if these parts are available, I have some info on Trane compressors but not enough.
The client will probably not proceed when they find out how much it's going to cost to do the conversion.

I have limited info as I have been asked to assist with this one. The system is a coolroom on R22, it has 2 Trane comps one has 3 stages of unloading (solenoids on the side cover) and one has the internal unloading similar to the Carrier 5H comps apparently.
I haven't seen the installation as it is in Melbourne.

Hi you need 75hp motor. 4 unloading Liner sleeves complete with springs and lifter pins.4 sets of orings for liner sleeves.3 solonoids valves with 9 orings. The side cover is special because it has oil channels and a small filter. Internal pipe work for 4 cyclinders.and 4 brass pins with oil hole in centre and each has 2 orings on it and the liner with unloading sleeves sit on them..the centre bank is always fully loaded and the side banks are uloaded

easy option- just run the 1 with 3 external unloaders as your 1st compressor- u said 1 has internal unloaders- is there external solonoid bodies?- cant find any info on that comp model

last resort- stick an inverter drive on it and start it up at 33% output then 66% output then 100% over a timed start up:p

GHAZ - Thanks Do you have a parts list you can send me?
IM - I think this is how it is running at the moment, and there are no external solenoids. I am not sure why they want to change it as the guy who asked me to assist him is on leave at the moment. I will quiz him out further when he is back.
