A/C compressor SPEED ???????

NissanSentra on Sat October 04, 2008 10:38 AM User is offlineView users profile

I understand the refrigerating process

I know the compressor is powered by a belt from the engine and controlled by an electromagnetic clutch (on/off) but is the speed (rpm) regulated in any way? If not I presume the faster the engine turns the faster the refrigerant is compressed and circulated in the circuit.

The faster the engine turns the faster heat will be removed from the cabin? Is this correct.

Thanks guys and girls

To a degree that is correct. While you do see improved performance at higher RPM. There also is a saturation point as the evap core can only handle a cretin amount of refrigerant.
