I actually checked with the Climate Control dept. of York International, was told that they do paint some of their compressors black.

The person I talked to didn't know why some were painted and some weren't, but that they were spray-painted in a booth, and not powder-coated.

As far as the quality of the paint results, that person couldn't elaborate.

York compressors are used in a variety of automotive models, and quite possibly are painted based on the requirements of the vehicle manufacturer. I know that some of the earlier Jeep models had black ones.

Hope that sheds some light on the subject.
