Automotive Air Conditioning Compressor
The compressor, which is commonly referred to as the heart of the system, is a belt driven pump, which is fastened to the engine. It is responsible for transferring and compressing refrigerant gas. The compressor being a pump has an intake side and a discharge side. The intake side draws in refrigerant gas from the outlet of the evaporator. Once the refrigerant is drawn into the intake side, it is compressed and sent to the condenser, were it will transfer heat that has been absorbed from the inside of the vehicle. The compressor is located at the center of the vehicles air conditioning system, in between the low pressure side and the high pressure side. On the low pressure side, the compressor is used to suck low pressure refrigerant gas. The compressor will then compress this gas which will in turn, increase its temperature and the pressure. After that the high pressure refrigerant is then discharged to the condenser, which is one of the main components of the high pressure side of the air conditioning system. There is a misconception that having a larger compressor in your vehicle will help your air conditioning system. Compressors are made of two main pieces, the clutch assembly, and the compressor body. The rest of the air conditioning system is a set size and only meant to handle specific amounts of refrigerant, oil, and pressure. Having a bigger compressor that can pump more of these fluids through the system would not help the air conditioning system in your vehicle because it is not built for it.
