AFD R'newal Service Program
The AFD R'newal is a Trane exclusive offer that allows users to
renew their liquid cooled AFDs main wear components to restore their
reliability and longevity to the equivalent of a new drive. Each
R'newal comes with a new nameplate and its major power components are
backed by a Trane extended warranty.
An AFD R'newal is
less expensive than running a drive to failure, and it allows drive
wear to be handled as a budgeted capital expense rather than an
unbudgeted maintenance expense.
The AFD R'newal program
is the best way to detect and remedy minor problems before they become
catastrophic failures. Major benefits of the program include:
Reliability. Power control boards, power semiconductors, and
electrolytic capacitors all wear. The best way to prevent random
failure is by performing a scheduled R'newal on the drive.
Speed. Repair of a failed AFD is never fast. Assuming the
work can be scheduled (always an “if” during cooling season), an AFD
failure can mean days of downtime during cooling season.
Factory Warranty. The factory warranty option demonstrates
the high value Trane places on its AFD and the service technicians
who work on them.
Value. A repair necessitated by chance is always more
expensive than the maintenance that would have prevented it.
