Compressors

Much like a heart in a human body, the compressor circulates the system’s lifeblood, in this case the refrigerant, that is vital to the proper operation of the air conditioning (A/C) system; in short it moves the gas from the evaporator, compresses it, and delivers it at high pressure and high temperature to the condenser, where it is converted into a cooling gas that cools the air in the vehicle’s cabin. Because of this you’ll want to fit to a proven quality compressor, engineered to deliver faster time to comfort and better fuel economy and emissions.

 

Features & benefits of Delphi Technologies compressors

Rich OE heritage

With more than 50 years’ expertise, Delphi Technologies has a rich heritage in compressors. We introduced the first integrated compressor under the bonnet in the 1950s and were the first to integrate electronics, sensors and special algorithms into climate control systems too, making them smarter, faster and better than ever before. Today, our OE compressor technology can still be found on millions of vehicles worldwide.

The Delphi Difference
More than 50 years A/C system expertise
Rigorous testing for durability and reliability
Proven warranty with less than one incident per thousand vehicles
Lightweight, high-efficiency design for improved cooling, fuel economy and durability
Environmentally friendly – less than 1lb of refrigerant leaks in 40 years
In-depth diagnostics including activation of the compressor clutch
Specialist training with F-gas certification

Intelligent design

The improved harmonic motion mechanism in our swash plate design reduces both weight and friction; less friction improves longevity and fuel economy and produces less noise. Combined with our hollow piston technology, integrated control valve and special reed valve and valve plate design, this makes for a fast-cooling, quiet, durable and highly-efficient compressor.

Rigorous testing

Quality has always been a big part of our history. And is part and parcel of everything we do today. That’s why every Delphi Technologies compressor undergoes rigorous testing including performance, durability, leakage, vibration, noise and fitment tests. Our leaks tests, for example, test to one pound of refrigerant in 40 years for an eco-friendly compressor.

Rigorous testing over 40 years

Proven performance

Don’t just take our word for it – we recently tested our compressor versus another leading brand. The Delphi compressor outperformed the competitor, delivering more than 15 percent better cooling capacity and volumetric efficiency, significantly less torque, and lower noise levels. And it did all this, without any loss of performance or signs of abnormal wear or tear.

AC capacity efficiency noise

Easy installation

When it comes to A/C servicing, first time fit and reliability are critical. Our compressors are designed with this in mind and come with an exterior shell casting that matches the OE part, together with all the required accessories for quick and easy installation.

Service support

Our DS diagnostic tool also provides the ability to perform in-depth diagnostics of the A/C system including checking A/C gas pressure using live data and component activation of the compressor clutch. And our two-day air con training programme provides an overview of the components, how best to diagnose faults and an assessment for EC307/2008 F-gas legislation so you can work safely and efficiently on these systems.
