Refrigeration Compressors & Components
Sunnen has set the standard for refrigeration compressor honing solutions. Sunnen supplies solutions for compressors large and small, for cooling systems for large buildings to smaller room-sized air conditioners and dorm refrigerators. Compressors require precision bores for the pistons that pump the refrigerant through the refrigeration cycle. Precision bearings used in compressors are also honed to improve life and provide smooth, quiet operation.
A Sunnen honing machine with special fixtures is capable of being loaded automatically by robotics for high production. Abrasives can be tailor made to satisfy the most demanding requirements of size, surface finish, and abrasive life. Fixtures are designed for quick load-unload cycles to improve throughput.
Sunnen produces the industry’s largest selection of honing machines – horizontal or vertical, single or multi spindle, automated or manual, standard or integrated – and our systems are designed with a focus on reliability, flexibility, and ease of use.
