Delphi Expands Its OE Technology Compressor Coverage

Delphi Automotive announced the expansion of its air conditioning (AC) compressor coverage by adding 70 new SKUs to its heating and cooling product portfolio.


Delphi Automotive announced the expansion of its air conditioning (AC) compressor coverage by adding 70 new SKUs to its heating and cooling product portfolio.

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,” 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.
