In case you ever wondered what compressors look like after they have spent some long hours in the Central Florida phosphate mines here you go. These photos were sent to us by MACS member Gordon Marks of Marks Air in Tampa, Florida.
The compressors were brought to Marks Air by a regular customer who does maintenance on trucks used by Mosaic. Mosaic is the world’s leading producer and marketer of concentrated phosphate and potash, two of the primary nutrients required to grow the food the world needs, according to their website.
Gordon explains, “Since the equipment (large dozers, hydraulic excavators and loaders (Cat D8, 385, & 988 size) operates mostly in wet, sloppy white ore, it splashes up on everything and dries hard on the compressors.”
The crew at Marks Air works to recondition the clutches and heads and use them on new compressors.
When having your mobile A/C system professionally serviced, insist on proper repair procedures and quality replacement parts. Insist on recovery and recycling so that refrigerant can be reused and not released into the atmosphere.
