Compressors

Delphi Compact Variable Compressors

The next generation of variable displacement piston compressor technology, Delphi's Compact Variable Compressors (CVC), are based on a swash plate simple harmonic motion mechanism. The enhanced mechanism performance makes the CVC adaptable to both pneumatic and electronic control.

Benefits

  • Compact design, better packaging, and lower mass
    • Lower mass enhances fuel economy improvement
    • Smaller diameter, shorter length for easier installation
  • Die-cast aluminum shell for a lightweight, high strength compressor
  • Variable displacement design provides:
    • Smooth, continuous operation
    • Improved operator comfort
    • Improved fuel economy
    • Improved dehumidification
  • Integrated control valve enables compact packaging
  • Electronic control system capability enhances system performance and improves cool-down
  • Compact clutch arrangements provide design flexibility
  • Best in class NVH (noise, vibration, handling) characteristics for quiet operation and customer satisfaction
  • High speed capability for uninterrupted air conditioning at high engine speeds
  • Options available include:
    • Clutchless or with clutch
    • Electronic control valve or pneumatic control value
    • Discharge shut-off valve 
    • Suction shut-off valve
    • Thermal fuse or thermal switch
    • High pressure relief valve for safety
    • Flexible pulley configuration options
    • Various vehicle engine and refrigeration interface options

Typical Applications

Delphi's CVC is adaptable to a full range of vehicles. While our current product portfolio includes CVC ranging from 100 cc displacement to 185 cc displacement, Delphi can design and validate a CVC for a specific application. The CVC can be applied to both thermostatic expansion valve and orifice tube systems.
