  • Australias first fridge.

    This cooler was one of Australias first cabinet coolers.

    Can be used with coal out of a fire , line the inner wall
    with coals , wet them down , and sit your cooler in the
    breeze.

      Camping coolers use the same method today, with a water absorbent material on the outside covered with perforated aluminum and plastic inside,

      Good for keeping your beer cool Bruce.

    Re: Hot tropical enviroment Condenser Temps

    Condenser rejects heat into atmosphere, so condensing pressure on air cooled has to be higher than ambient.
    Expect 140F at least in those hot days.

    It will be hard to get 115F with 120F ambient on an air cooled condenser.
