A New Design Rotary Compressor for Mobile AC&R Applications

In mobile air conditioning applications, we talk in terms of displacement per revolution and volumetric efficiency, to enable the selection of the right compressor for a particular vehicle, depending upon the engine capacity and cooling capacity required at idle and optimum engine speeds. Thus the right capacity of compressor can be determined for a particular vehicle. If this selection process is not carried out properly then either the vehicle's engine is overloaded (meaning fuel inefficiency and starvation of the vehicle driving power) or the required cooling capacity is not achieved.
