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

    Automotive system leaks on vacuum but not on pressure

    This is a 2010 CitroŽn Berlingo with 5SEL12c compressor. It had zero pressure so I added 120 psi of nitrogen to find the leak. Not 1 psi drop for 20 mins
