  • 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.

    Brivis donsr 16z7 pump down

    Hey fellas, who can tell me the pump down procedure for this unit?
    It goes out on hi pressure if you attempt a pump down with the liquid line closed.

    Creating a Sonic Bang.

    Just for Fun.
    I can think of 2 occasions where an engineer can create a sonic bang!
    1 using a refrigerant and the other using another medium.

    Re: Heater tape

    I would have thought trap outside with provision to clean it in accessible location as well.
    Good fall on pipe also helps.
    Make sure pipe
