Valeo Reman Compressors

The compressor is among the most expansive A/C loop components while also being a driving element. Thus, Valeo has developed reman as a cost-effective alternative for your customers. 

Valeo has mastered the reman process into the following steps:

Collecting the cores and sorting them according to technical features

Disassembling the cores, with the pump on one side, and the clutch on the other

Washing all parts 

Remanufacturing the sub-components

Testing the sub-components according to a 45-point checklist (visual, electric and functional)

Systemically replacing all worn parts with new components (O-rings, seals, bearing) to ensure durability

Testing the finalised compressor to ensure product safety: 

  • Leak test
  • Functionality test
  • Nitrogen fill test 

Valeo's best-in-class reman process is based on OE processes and specifications. The end result is a cost-efficient part which reduces waste (+1kg Reman = -1kg CO2)
