Reed Valves for Passenger Car

Air-Conditioning Compressors

  • Maximum reliability and efficiency
  • Reduced noise
  • Maximum quality standards due to state-of-the-art manufacturing processes

Reed valve systems are crucial components for the reliable function of air-conditioner compressors in passenger cars. They must open and close flawlessly without maintenance over many years.

HOERBIGER valve components ensure maximum reliability, optimal efficiency, and low noise levels.

We are a worldwide system partner for OEMs manufacturing passenger car air-conditioner compressors and benefit from our experience as a leading manufacturer of reed valves and reed valve systems as well as from our global market presence.

We set standards in the continually growing air-conditioner compressor market with innovative technical designs. Our wide range of products includes suction and discharge reeds, retainers, conical washers, gaskets, stopper valves, links and valve plates.

In development, we employ state-of-the-art 3D CAM / FEM software as well as our proprietary computational programs for flow and temperature simulation. Our development centers in Europe and Asia work closely together to ensure that we also take regional requirements into account in the application development.

In production, state-of-the-art manufacturing processes assure a consistently high level of quality. HOERBIGER possesses extensive experience in processing sintered, fine blanked, cast and stamped valve plates. In addition, we are equipped with special production lines for rough-grinding, precision-grinding, lapping and polishing, as well as ultrasonic cleaning.
