  • 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: Bypass desuper heater with Sporlan ORI

    yeah those Sporlan bulletins are a good read Brian ,
    i guess the benefit of the ORI i s adjustablility , go for max desuperheat in summer cooling

    Re: Bypass desuper heater with Sporlan ORI

    If you reduce the flow through the desuperheater are you going to get sufficient duty from it to make it worthwhile using it?

    Sorry, this

    Re: Bypass desuper heater with Sporlan ORI

    hi Brian , i see i made a typo above and have changed it.
    yes desuperheater is before condenser. My plan is using only the ORI not in its usual
