    J & E Halls 7 x 5 1/2 , compound, 8 cylinder compressor spares


    Hello the Forum

    Can anyone advise of spare parts or complete compressor of above type.

    main part needed is a crankshaft but a compressor is also considered necessary.

    Can you advise via alanwwolfy1@hotmail.co.uk

    Regards
    Alan

    Hi Alan.
    Have you tried J&E Halls online.
    As far as I know they still supply spares.
    They are having wharehouse clearance sales on many of their spares at the moment includind V178 spares.

    Hi Grizzly,
    J & E Hall compressors, recips, are they still being manufactured. They were made to last a long time. Still come across 5 x 4 recips plugging away at low revs, still doing the job and probably 40 years old.

    Hi Magoo.
    I can't tell you exactly when production of the V block series was stopped.
    They first launched them in 1950 and yes there a still loads around all over the world.
    Especially in cold stores and breweries.
    Their spares are still available till when I do not know?
    Maybe someone can advise?

    Hello Grizzly and Magoo

    We are very close to Halls but cost and delivery on shafts is big and long.

    We need a compressor or shaft soonest.

    The machine which failed is 34 years old and its still on R22.

    Solution is either another compressor second hand, a rebuild which is hard graft as this has seized or retrofit
    with a pair of screws.

    Regards
    Alan

    I think I know of one in Australia, but this might be to complicated with export etc.

    Hi Ranger

    Thanks for your reply.

    Looks like customer may be biting the bullet and accepting a recommendation to go with 2 screw units compounded.
    and also retrofit to R404A from R22.

    Regards
    Alan
