AIR CONDITIONING COMPRESSOR

The heart of the air conditioning system is the compressor which acts as a pump to raise pressure and move the flow of refrigerant around the system. Most vehicle air conditioning compressors are engine driven via the auxiliary drive belt and an electromagnetic clutch pulley. Commercial vehicle refrigeration systems may be powered by a diesel engine or electric motor.
Vehicle air conditioning systems rely on change of temperature and pressure of refrigerant gas flowing through the fluid circuit of the air conditioning system. As gas pressure increases ,temperature also increases and vice versa.  The compression of refrigerant gas causes an increase of  gas pressure and temperature at the outlet of the compressor. The compressor can only compress gas. If liquid enters the compressor component damage will result.

Air conditioning systems have a Low pressure side (suction side of compressor) and a High pressure side (output side of compressor).

The lubrication oil (POE is recommended for R134a systems) for the air conditioning refrigeration compressor is injected in to the refrigerant circuit during service. A refrigerant leak may cause loss of this lubrication oil and eventually result in compressor damage and seizure.

Moisture and  the Air conditioning Compressor

Moisture and liquid can damage AC compressors because;

  • Moisture within the refrigerant circuit can mix with oil to form acids which corrode the air conditioner system components.
  • Refrigerant recovery by F-Gas certified personnel is a legal obligation when removing or fitting air conditioning or refrigeration gas circuit components. System flushing is recommended before fitting replacement compressors
