Protect Domestic and Import Compressor Installations
Eight Suction Screen Sizes Now Available From ACDelco
Grand Blanc, MI.(January, 2004) ¾ Metal shavings and other debris trapped in the suction line of a failed compressor are often the culprit in subsequent compressor malfunctions. Recognizing this, ACDelco developed the AC Compressor Guard Suction Screen Kit, which is now the last line of defense against suction line impurities. The ACDelco Compressor Guard Kit is designed to protect compressor installations for all makes and models of passenger vehicles.
The kit's suction screens are designed for placement in the suction port of the compressor hose assembly manifold. Technicians can install suction screens without cutting hose or creating potential new leaks.
The ACDelco Compressor Guard Kit contains two each of eight different size suction screens, for a total of 16 screens. The eight screen sizes fit most domestic and import vehicle applications.
The kit also contains a newly developed sizing tool that allows technicians to match the proper suction screen to the size of the hose assembly suction port. The sizing tool functions much like a jewelry store ring sizer. Technicians can determine the size of the suction port by inserting the sizing tool into the port. Where the tool stops determines the correct size suction screen for that port.
The new AC Compressor Guard Kit contains all eight (two each) of the different suction screen sizes, the installation tool, the extractor tool, the sizing tool and an installation manual.
"The AC Compressor Guard Kit from ACDelco protects field installations as if they were going into a factory-clean system," said John Munsell, Thermal Product Specialist at ACDelco.
ACDelco is also announcing the release of the 2004 Air Conditioning Catalog that has more than 7,900 part numbers from "Acura" to "Volvo" and from "Accumulators" to "Water Outlets" and everything in between.
