O.E. fit, form and function is key in the aftermarket today. The uncertainty of the purchased part not looking like what was taken off the vehicle leaves technicians questioning if they received the right part.
The NAPA® Temp design is completely pre-assembled with the liquid tube, bracket and block for fast, easy alignment & installation. The competitor unit is missing the liquid tube, bracket and block, requiring the installer to reuse parts from the old accumulator just to complete the repair.
NAPA® Temp accumulators and filter driers feature proper welds for a durable, leak-free design, high-quality desiccant for appropriate absorption and necessary gaskets, o-rings and/or seals for easy installation. We also ensure that all of our units are compatible with both R134a and R12 refrigerants.
The NAPA® Temp outlet tube is the appropriate height to prevent liquid refrigerant from traveling to the compressor
Competitor's outlet tube is too low and close to the inlet and misses trumpet-style end.
