Bristol is introducing Benchmark, a new line of reciprocating and scroll compressors. With its nearly cylindrical design, new suction muffler, and spring mounting, the Benchmark Recip is one of the quietest compressors for 1.5- to 4-ton units, says the company. The Benchmark Scroll is built to be more reliable with greater mechanical and energy efficiencies (12+ SEER), the company says.
