The Benchmarkâ„¢ line of compressors is designed to match compression technology precisely to specific needs, the company states. The line includes scroll and reciprocating compressors designed for specific cooling and heat pump needs. The company states that the line's scroll compressor is more suitable for higher-capacity units (3.5 tons and above), while the reciprocating compressor works well in smaller units (1.5 to 3.5 tons). According to the manufacturer, the scroll compressor, with its press-fit assembly, requires no bolts and fewer hermetic welds than competitors' scrolls. Both the scroll and reciprocating compressors feature significantly decreased sound levels, says the company.

Bristol Compressors Inc., 15185 Industrial Park Rd., Bristol, VA 24202; 276-466-4121; 276-645-7500 (fax); www.benchmarkcompressors.com.
