Hi Sam,

You will need to take out the whole element and send if for a complete overhaul – which includes repairing of the screw profiles, changing the bearings, etc, etc.

2600 hours is very little running hours for a screw element in a stationary compressor – usually they last for about 40.000 running hours.

The most common causes are:

  • running in reverse direction – it will usually last only a few minutes
  • severe overheating – usually due to blocked oil channels

Sorry I can’t be of much more help here.

Good luck!

Cas
