The Development of a Fixed-Displacement Single-Sided Swash Plate A/C Compressor 2000-01-0971
Traditionally there have been two types of automotive fixed-displacement air-conditioning compressors on the market. One is the wobble plate (single sided) compressor, and the other is an opposed (double sided) swash plate compressor. Due to the increasing demand for high speed, high performance, quiet compressors, a single sided, swash plate compressor with a fixed displacement was developed. This compressor combines the positive attributes from both types of compressors into a new superior product designed to surpass market requirements.
