This is a 2 cylinder Australian made refrigeration compressor, made by Kirby Manufacturing - Australia.

I removed it from a scrap condensing unit used on an IGA supermarket meatcase.

This one is similar to a 3 cylinder Kirby compressor that I scrapped 12 months ago, after it ran dry of oil (very little remained in crank case, mixed with melted plastic from the polypropylene splash shield) and subsequently overheated to the point of throwing the no2 con rod, jamming up and burning the motor windings out (no motor protector was fitted)
