Delphi expands compressor line
Delphi Automotive has expanded its air conditioning compressor coverage by adding 70 new SKUs to its heating and cooling product portfolio.
Delphi will display the compressors at the Mobile Air Conditioning Society (MACS) 2012 Convention and Trade Show in Booth #505. Delphi’s technical trainer and field engineer, Dave Hobbs, will serve as a featured program presenter during the show, discussing variable displacement compressors, specifically highlighting design, operation and diagnosis. (His program, Secrets to Conquering Compressor Comebacks, is scheduled for today, Jan. 18.)
The new compressors cover more than 26 million U.S. vehicles and nearly two million Canadian vehicles for BMW, Chrysler, GM, Honda, Hyundai, Isuzu, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, Porsche, Toyota, Volkswagen and Ford applications.
“Our OE heritage and engineering expertise enables us to expand our coverage to a wide range of applications,” says Marcelo Ganasevici, global product line director, independent aftermarket, Delphi Product & Service Solutions. “Each compressor is tested to meet Delphi’s OE standards of performance, durability and noise. Delphi compressors are leak tested to one pound of refrigerant in 40 years using sophisticated mass spectrometer leak test equipment offering superior, reliable performance.”
The high pumping capacity cools the passenger compartment quickly and low torque demand maximizes fuel economy through less horsepower. Its proven clutch design means longer compressor clutch life and reduced potential for belt slippage or squeak. Plus, the compressors are easy to install because Delphi AC compressors contain a full-system charge of oil and include sealing washer kits where applicable.
