Copeland Compressor ID

FYI: What the Copeland Compressor model number breakdown is

What the Copeland Compressor model number breakdown is

Example for ZR34K3-PFV-830
Z = Scroll
R = R22 Refrigerant
34 = BtuK/hr or 34,000 Btu/hr and is equivalent to 3 Tons ( an acceptable Btu difference is + or - 3)
K3 = is the revision of this type of compressor and is not important when choosing a replacement
PFV = mounting and voltage (as long as the previous compressor has this, then you are OK)
830 - is the Bill of Material that Copeland assigns.  This number changes for all replacement compressors and is not critical.

In summary the following model features are critical and need to be the same
ZR34K3 and PFV

Now if anybody can find me a cheap
ZR36KC-PFV-230 that would be cool.
 Based on my first post
 a ZR34K3-PFV-830 will work.
Do any of you brainiacs concur?
The cheapest one I have found is $461.00
Does anyone know where I can
get a cheaper one than that?

Thanking yall in advance.

JW just some minor notes:
The R means R-22 refrigerant in High Temp applications, there is also B which means R-22 for Medium/High Temp applications.
The K means multiply the number before by 1,000 (34 X 1000=34,000).
If you see M it means that you multiply by 10,000. The following digit is the version or revision as you stated. The Electrical characteristics PFV (phase, motor protection, rated voltage) must pretty much be the same, that is unless your distributor has OEM access level at Emerson. The BOM is not critical if you are willing to add or remove components from the compressors ( CKH, ROTOLOCK Valves etc).

Go ahead and swap that compressor in practice it wont make a difference. However remember R-22 begins phase out next year.
Why not sell your customer a new unit? Or perhaps offer a retrofit?

When R12 was being phazed out my boss bought 5000 dollars worth of it in 100 pound bottles. When the price hit the roof the IRS came by and reassessed the value of his stock. He was not a happy camper.

JW if you dont mind much about the efficiency you could swap the scroll for a hermetic recip. That should bring the cost down.

As long as it is 220 volt and R22 anythang would be better than what they have now. I might just make a run to mississippi and see if they have a Katrina compressor laying around. The damn trouble is we have a steel mill that is making rebar here and another german steel mill being built dammit. They are paying big money now for scrap metal that used to be worth nothing. My buddy took 4 washers and a freezer over the scales and got $50 bucks, it used to be you were lucky to get $5. You cannot even find appliances like you used to. The world is going to hell.
