Bristol Compressors Releases “The Beast”
to North American Market for Spring 2014

BRISTOL, Va. — For spring 2014, Bristol Compressors is releasing The Beast™, an aftermarket compressor unit designed for even more reliable operation in the most challenging environments, to the North American market.
According to company officials, The Beast™ continues to raise the bar for efficiency and reliability in the aftermarket. The new generation compressor is engineered to overcome tough conditions that could take down a lesser unit. Specifically, The Beast™ offers:
·        Ability to start under low voltage and extreme ambient conditions;
·        Resistance to contamination associated with replacement repairs;
·        Enhanced liquid refrigerant tolerance;
·        Elimination of electrical failures due to mis-wire or defective start components; and
·        Quiet operation in high-ambient conditions and during defrost cycles.
“We are thrilled to offer The Beast™ because it is cutting-edge technology that will have a real impact in the aftermarket, specifically for residential applications,” says Joel Moseley, vice president of sales and marketing for Bristol Compressors. “We call it The Beast™ because it is so tough — it will stand up to extreme ambient conditions.”
The Beast™, also identified as HBST, will be available nationwide through the network of authorized Bristol Compressors dealers and distributors.
