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


Compressor's three main technologies:

  • Piston compressors
  • Scroll compressors
  • Vane compressors 


Did you know ?

Valeo’s first five-vane rotary compressor, launched in 1980, was a world first. Today, with years of experience behind it, Valeo is offering a new simple two-vane rotary compressor which is developed to meet the needs of compact vehicles throughout the world. The first models have been produced in Thailand for automakers.

Mastering innovative technology-electrical compressor by Valeo

Continuously focusing to accompany the automotive market with new solutions Valeo developed the innovative electrical compressor, which was given in 2014 the PACE award. 

Electrical Compressor (EDC) it’s a compressor with integrated inverter for hybrid and electrical vehicles. Valeo world premiere on application for Audi SQ7. 


Playing the key role in the AC system compressor is susceptible to be damaged by issues occurring on other AC loop elements:

  • not enough or too much refrigerator 
  • not enough oil, dirty oil or wrong oil 
  • pollution of AC system caused by issues with spare parts like condensers, evaporator..
  • magnetic clutch failure

The compressor must be replaced due to the crash and once damaged. 

Valeo Tip
  • For the long lasting compressor life while replacing the compressor Valeo recommends:
  • never to install a new compressor without rinsing the system  
  • to change as well expansion valve, receiver drier, gasket/o’rings 
  • never to proceed to random oil leveling, always ensure the correct oil type and oil level
