Compressors for trucks and buses
Guaranteed quality has made the brand DT Spare Parts the leading brand in the international Independent Aftermarket for commercial vehicles. The complete range includes all required spare parts for trucks, trailers and buses, including all standard compressors.
The compressor is driven directly by the vehicle engine. It is similar in construction to a vehicle engine. Inside the compressor are, depending on the power requirements, one or two pistons, which in the downwards movement, suck in filtered air from outside through an open suction lamella.
By the upwards movement the suction lamella closed and the sucked-in air is compressed, a pressure lamella opens. The compressed air is fed to the air reservoir via an air dryer including an oil separator and made available to the “consumers”.
Modern compressors possess an idling facility which makes it possible to reduce the power requirements of the compressor in the case of unnecessary air feed. In modern constructions, the compressor can be completely separated from the drive by means of a clutch and so consumes no more energy. This has a positive effect on the fuel consumption of the vehicle.
As the compressed air becomes very hot, newer high-Performance compressors have a water cooling system, which effectively cools the thermally highly-stressed cylinder head.
