Compressors may be classified as either open or hermetic.
An open compressor requires an external drive and may be direct driven thru a coupling or belt driven to operate at a specific speed, depending on load requirements. The type of the drive (electric motor, internal combustion engine or steam turbine) may be selected to provide sufficient horsepower to match the job requirement. This compressor may use any type of electric motor.
A hermetic compressor has an electric motor and a compressor built into an integral housing. The motor and compressor utilize a common shaft and bearings. The motor is generally cooled by suction gas passing thru the windings but may, in some cases, be water-cooled. These compressors eliminate problems of motor mounting, coupling alignment, motor lubrication, and refrigerant leakage at the shaft seal. The compressor operating limits depend on the refrigerant used and the horsepower output of the motor. Generally, the motor horsepower is matched to the compressor and a refrigerant so that the motor does not overload when the unit operates within normal air conditioning levels. Hermetic compressors may be classified as either sealed (requiring factory service for repairs) or accessible (permitting service on the job).
