It's great if you have excess energy, say from solar during the day, to chill the cold plates and then use that stored energy at night when solar is not available. That's where it could potentially shine. You could also store that same energy in a battery
and run an evaporator refrigeration system. Batteries are inefficient to charge all the way full but if you don't they don't last long. Then we have lithium batteries. They are light and charge efficiently but are costly especially when considering the charge system needed for them. So there are a lot of variables in the refrigeration conundrum. I myself just use a Coleman Extreme icebox
that has two inches of insulation
. It holds ice for six 95 degree days and only cost $60.00.
I follow you amigo...but I'm just not sure why you keep bringing holding plates into the discussion we are having about R-value and how it affects power usage. That that was my frustration with the BS comment. I intentionally try to keep discussions about my products (water makers or refrigeration) out of threads where it doesn't belong. But it's like it irks you to know I make holding plate systems and you just have to get your digs in, like you did twice for no reason of value in this thread other than (frankly) to try and get a rise out of me and just be an ass. Now from one ass to another, that's said with love.
Hey...I don't care if you hate holding plate systems and think they can't be a real freezer
, hey El Trumpo or HiLiary haven't been elected yet and made it illegal to have different opinions. So why BS and digs? I present data, you present your opinions and we move along. But when you call me a Liar and then say I'm being Rude for responding in kind...now that's not how the playground works. You kick sand in my face, it gets kicked back.
I couldn't give a rats ass about marketing
101 and how I shouldn't be talking shop on a chat room because it's to risky for me. I'm a cruiser first, Retired and if I don't sell another water
maker or refrigeration system again all that happens to me is that the money
I donate to charity goes down a bit. But it doesn't affect me. That is also the type of person you want to do business with because in another thread when people were asking where to by a Danfoss controller and if I sold them, I gave them a link to an online retailer that sells them for cheaper than I can even buy them for! It's not about the money
to me...which means Customer Service
and having Fun is why I do what I do. Plus I'm a type A personality and failed at retirement
at 38...so this beats having a real job to stay busy and lets me "act" like I'm working while really just messing around rebuilding my Teak
batteries are a game
changer for sure.
I installed my 400AH bank over two years ago now and would never go back to lead, so on that we are in complete agreement.
Wife home now...better get off the chat rooms and act busy...later Amigo.
Oh and what's inside a high priced cooler Yeti Cooler...yep you guessed it...our Good Friend Polyurethane
Foam! I just had to know...so we cut one in half...back to that scientist thing again...Imagine if they used Aerogel!
