SD7V16 is an AC Compressor made by Sanden. SD7V16 is often Sanden's top ac compressor. The SD7v16
is part of Sanden's SD Series AC Compressors. These AC Compressors, including
the sd7v16 have fixed displacement. They are known for their "wobble place"
compressor feature. The SD series is available is both fixed and variable
The SD7v16 specifically can have variable displacement anywhere from 5 to 100
percent depending of efficiency demands. All displacement is handled internally
thanks to the internally placed pressure valve. For variable displacement,
sd7v16 comes in a 7 piston model. The max speed for a sd7v16 is 8000 rpm, which
is very impressive considering most cars on the road have engines which cannot
come close to that redline. The maximum displacement is just above 160 cc's and
the minimum displacement is just above 8cc's. This is how the sd7v16 derives its
name, 7 is the piston number and 16 stands for the maximum displacement (160).
The sd7v16 comes in various shapes and sizes. The core compressor itself is not
changed but there are a variety of direct and ear mounts available for the
sd7v16. Also, not all sd7v16 models have the same clutch. Clutch configurations
are different depending on the applications and vary by groove count and
A lot of the smaller Volkswagen and Audi cars use the SD7v16 such as the Audi
TT, VW Golf, VW Beetle, and VW Jetta with the model year ranging from the mid
1990s to the mid 2000's. We carry all the different variations of the sd7v16. If
