Visteon's scroll compressor delivers cooling and energy efficiencies

Palmela, Portugal (ots-PRNewswire) - The scroll compressor produced by Visteon Corporation (NYSE: VC) at its dedicated facility in Palmela, Portugal, delivers major benefits over conventional, piston-driven compressors. (Photo: Visteon's scroll compressor design is based on the principle of circle involutes or scrolls, which revolve around each other in a "rolling" motion. Pressure loads supported by ball bearings create far less friction on internal components when compared to piston-driven compressors. By reducing the need for hydrodynamic lubrication that is required to reduce friction at internal contact points, the scroll compressor provides an inherently smoother operation and improved thermodynamic efficiency. The compressor is the engine behind any refrigeration or air conditioning system and the way in which it operates will play a large part in determining the effectiveness and efficiency of the system as a whole. The main benefit of the Visteon scroll compressor is a quieter, smoother and more efficient operation, along with greater reliability and durability. "The scroll compressor will run between 30 percent and 100 percent capacity reducing engine 'surge' or 'stumble' which is experienced with some vehicle air conditioning systems," said Sunil Bilolikar, Compressor Operations Manager at Visteon's Palmela plant. "The compressor also provides a smoother transition when the air conditioning is switched from on to off. At the same time, the compressor helps minimise the effects of air conditioning on power consumption at typical road speeds." The scroll compressor is capable of running for extended periods of time at 10,000 RPM (revolutions per minute) and exceeds OEM's requirement of reliable service over 10 years or 240,000 kilometres.
