Re: Replacement Refrigeration Compressor (Engine Driven)

I am interested in the Seltec. I have a Blissfield CA compressor on a water cooled system. Do you know if they will swap?

Re: Replacement Refrigeration Compressor (Engine Driven)

The refrigeration on my 1982 Whitby 42 is water-cooled with a Tecumseh HGC 1000 belt driven by a large 12v electric motor. It worked very well when we bought the boat but is a fairly energy hungry system. The compressor seized 14 months ago and the refrigeration company I used replaced it with a new one rather than rebuild. I've had nothing but trouble since. It has now stopped working altogether as it seems to putting to much load on the electric motor which then burns out its solenoid. I am tossing up whether to replace the lot with a danfoss system or look for a rotary style compressor as a replacement which I'm told should be far more energy efficient than the Tecumseh piston compressor. Does anyone know if a viable rotary compressor replacement exists or have any other suggestions?

Re: Replacement Refrigeration Compressor (Engine Driven)

Wow! I have the same problem on a 1978 Formosa 41 with a Fleming R134a refrigeration unit using a Blissfield compressor that is not longer made. After much soul searching, I have decided to replace only the compressor with a new rotary 12v or 120v compressor and am trying to understand how to determine to correct size and how to adapt the rotary compressor to work with my existing refrigeration components.

That may take a while and in the meantime I am using a 1.3 cu ft. 120v mini-fridge to keep the milk cold and I am surprised at the low amp draw from my inverter.

What I need is a little help to determine the correct size compressor needed for a 8 cu ft., cold plate, water cooled, freezer/spill over refer, 12v or 120v unit and I think I can adapt compressor into my existing components.

Any refer tech cruisers out there with thoughts on how to begin this selection process??

Thx
James
