Development of SV-06 A/C Compressor for Mini-Car Applications 900221
The smaller and lighter SV-06 sliding vane type compressor has been developed as the successor of the swash plate type 10P08 compressor for mini-car air conditioning applications.
The SV-06 is the first vane type compressor in the world which utilizes an aluminum cylinder and rotor to achieve weight reduction. This was accomplished by introducing several new features to the design, such as a boron treated vane and smooth cylinder profile. Thinner vanes and a high performance oil separator were also introduced for compactness.
This paper presents the many design features that allow small size and low weight while maintaining compressor performance and reliability, and focuses on the most important technology:
