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, said 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.
Dave Hobbs' program Secrets to Conquering Compressor Comebacks is scheduled for Wednesday, January 18, 2012 from 8:30AM – 11:30AM. Dave will discuss hybrid A/C service and repair, as well as the latest HVAC information. In addition to simplifying the complexities of compressor technology, Dave will provide critical information technicians can easily incorporate into their day-to-day responsibilities for effective service and repair, said Ganasevici.
The variable displacement compressor program is part of Delphi's comprehensive training curriculum. The Air Conditioning Systems four-hour course for beginners and intermediates covers the latest diagnostic and service procedures to help address various system performance problems. New refrigerants and the J2788 standards are reviewed, and potential customer benefits are identified. Technicians can learn procedures to help safeguard against compressor failures and avoiding comebacks, as well as provided current service information and tech bulletins.
