Hi guys , it has been a very long time I didn't participate to the forum , the cause is abvious , it's the war .... I miss you all and beleive me when I say that I miss you , I do.
Sorry for all the guys that were waiting files from me , I promise to send it in less than a week.

Here are some old refrigeration pictures that I though are good to share as we have now thanks to the BOSS a history section.

pic 1: Each day these men brought blocks of ice to every home and business on their route. They were the first refrigeration hands.

pic 2: An Icebox. An ice block was stored in a top compartment and used to keep food and drinks cold.

pic 3: This unit was built between 1911 and 1928 by the AUDIFFREN Refrigerating Machine, Co. and used sulpher dioxide as a refrigerant.

pic 4: The Crosley Icyball made by the Crosley Radio Corporation of Cincinnati, Ohio. The unit consisted of a hot ball and a cold ball connected by a U shaped pipe. To start the unit the hot ball was heated for 1.5 hours to drive ammonia into the cold ball which was immersed in water to condense to the ammonia. The unit was then hung in the cabinet which could be cooled for 12 to 24 hours.

pic 5: Monitor top refrigerator.

pic 6: Automatic Multi-Coil Storage Heater. 1908. Manufactured by RUUD Manufacturing, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Removed from the Pasadena Athletic Club as the building was being demolished in December 1977. Donated by Iconoco Wrecking Company.

pic 7: Condensing Unit

pic 8: Westinghouse Chiller

pic 9: 1927 Carrier Chiller

pic 10: Steam driven refrigeration plant

The next 5 pictures are in the next post. That's due to the maximum number of uploads per post limited to 5.

Hi, all the best and take care. All some of us have to think about is small refrigeration faults and not how to keep safe.

It's hard to think about refrigeration when your head is near to be blown.
