Marine Direct Boat Refrigeration
We offer two types of marine
Plate Type Refrigeration
Both have advantages depending
on the owners usage patterns.
Most refrigeration systems uses
a compressor to compress gas. The gas expands in the evaporation plate
or tank causing it to cool. This cooling removes the heat from objects
in the refrigerator or ice box. This process does not cool the
objects, it removes the heat from them and transfers this heat to the
evaporation plate or eutectic tank.
A refrigeration system with thin
evaporation plates will cycle many times a day, some times up to 20 times.
The compressor will run longer if the thermostat is turned down towards the
coolest setting. Heat in objects is transferred to the evaporation
plate each time it cycles. The compressor operates frequently because
the thin evaporation plate is unable to store the cold.
A eutectic system still uses a
compressor but incorporates a tank filled with liquid that continually
freezes and then defrosts. As the liquid freezes in the tank, its
cooling energy is stored. This stored cooling ability is then released
as the tank defrosts drawing heat from objects in the cool box. When
the tank has almost defrosted the compressor starts again to freeze the
liquids and repeat the process. This process is called a
We have experience in installing
both types of systems and are able to recommend a suitable system for your
