DECATUR, Ill. — Compressor supplier T/CCI Manufacturing has introduced new cooling technology for the bus market in the U.S. and Canada.

The QPS65 swash plate compressor is suited for buses, transport refrigeration vehicles, and other applications that require large capacity displacement. According to T/CCI, the new, smaller design is tailored to align with industry trends in bus manufacturing, downsizing engine space and the ability to mount traditional compressors.

“The QPS65 is the direct result of industry demand in the market,” T/CCI President Richard Demirjian said. “We have applied 30 years of engineering expertise to develop a durable, lower-cost compressor that provides a smoother, more comfortable ride. We have also allowed for more clutch configurations, resulting in the ability to customize solutions for partners in the U.S., Canada, and around the world.”

The company’s new QP25 compressor is designed to be a versatile solution for school buses and smaller bus applications. The QP25 model offers higher capacity than the QP21 or enhanced 7H15 while being able to fit in the same mounting configurations. According to T/CCI, this provides an immediate, cost-effective solution to customers who need the higher capacity in extreme climatic conditions.

“The demand for buses worldwide is forecast to rise nearly 5% annually through 2021, and the need to provide our OEMs with customized solutions at an affordable cost is higher than ever,” said Dick Ennis, director of engineering. “Both the QPS65 and the QP25 are quality-tested products that have undergone T/CCI’s rigorous validation processes to meet industry-leading performance standards.”
