A key role in air conditioning
The compressor is directly fixed to the engine block, driven by the belt. Compressor is the main AC system part. By creating a differential pressure: high and low pressures, compressor acts as pump ensuring the flow of the refrigerant through the AC circuit.
Compressor is the most complex product of AC loop regarding the technology features and as a result the most valued. Hence, the choice of good quality product is extremely vital here.
The key functions of compressor:
- Delivering the refrigerant to all parts of the air conditioning system
- Raising the pressure of the refrigerant in the gas phase and allowing to reduce the temperature during cooling at the condenser
- Transporting oil which slows down wear and tear of mechanical parts and seals up the system
