Strange evaporator size ??

Hi every one.

Just starting my refrigeration renovation . I have a 9 cubic foot box that has R60 (vacuum panels encapsulated in foam board ) all the way around .

I will be using an air cooled BD50, from Nova Kool .

My Ideal roll bonded evaporator plate shape would be 76" x 7" . This makes for a perfect fit running around the top inside perimeter of the box on three sides .

My question is, would such a shaped evaporator work properly ?

Regards

Re: Strange evaporator size ??

Here's an Idea.

Richard Kollman posted this on another thread


"Have you considered using 25 feet of inch OD refrigerant dehydrated copper tubing for an evaporator? I built these at one time clamped in back of a stainless steel 18 gauge sheet. I believe Frigoboat has this simple inexpensive type evaporator although it is wider than 8 inches. SeaFrost will make you an evaporator plate any size but it is not aluminum roll bond. On more than one boat where evaporator coil was behind box liner and failed I clamped 25 to 35 feet of aluminum tubing to box walls as a good solution."

Has anyone done this ?

Regards
