TCCI Manufacturing Introduces Latest Cooling Technology to Growing Bus Market in the U.S. and Canada

August 23, 2018 in News

OEM compressor designs for both large and small busses provide new, more durable, compact solutions that provide the right displacement for each job.

DECATUR, IL – (January 16, 2017) – TCCI Manufacturing, a world leader in compressor technology including reciprocating, swash plate, wobble plate, and variable compressor designs is introducing two new compressors for the bus market in the United States and Canada.

The QPS 65 Swash Plate compressor provides the latest technology and design for buses, transport refrigeration vehicles and other applications that require large capacity displacement. 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,” TCCI 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 QP25 is designed for school busses and smaller bus applications, providing a versatile, lower cost solution for new bus designs. The QP25 model provides higher capacity than the QP21 or enhanced 7H15 while being able to fit in the same mounting configurations. 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 five percent annually through 2021 and the need to provide our OEMs with customized solutions at an affordable cost is higher than ever. Both the QPS 65 and the QP25 are quality tested products that have undergone TCCI’s rigorous validation processes to meet industry leading performance standards,” Director of Engineering Dick Ennis said.

More About the QPS 65
The QPS65’s compact and light packaging meets the needs of most new bus designs. The swash plate compressor is more durable, and the NVH is lower than reciprocating compressors, providing a smoother, more comfortable ride. There are two model configurations available for the QPS65 – one rotates clockwise and the other counterclockwise. This enables compressor mounting either on the engine or opposite the engine when space constraints do not allow the compressor to be engine mounted. TCCI is the only manufacturer in the industry with this style of compressor in a counter clockwise rotation.

The QPS65 model can use both PAG or POE type oils depending on the customer’s needs which ensures compatibility with different system requirements.
Service and maintenance are enhanced with dual sight glasses to ensure compressor oil levels are maintained and shaft seal leakage is minimized by use of a superior “triple-lip shaft seal” unlike reciprocating compressors.

The QPS family also includes two smaller displacement models, the QPS43 and QPS55 which allows the customer to tailor their system designs more precisely than ever before.

More About the QP 25
The QP25 compressor has been fitted with a new design “4-eye” clutch with higher clamping force to accommodate the increased capacity of the QP25. The rubber dampening of the 4-eye armature provides smooth and quiet clutch engagements that ensure NVH (Noise, Vibration, Harshness) characteristics of the QP25 exceed customer expectations.

The QPS65 and QP25 are now available and being distributed to OEM dealers through the United States, Europe, South America and Asia.


When RV OEMs approved a commercial compressor manufacturer about making an RV air conditioner, TCCI Manufacturing went to work, making a unit that may disrupt the marketplace.
