Every vessel needs some sort of marine refrigeration. With boat refrigerators to keep your perishables fresh to icebox systems for fishing boats, you deserve the luxury of having marine refrigeration aboard.
But if you are considering adding or replacing marine refrigeration on your vessel, then you may have some questions. We are here to clear up the confusion and answer your most frequently asked questions about marine refrigeration.
- What is marine refrigeration?
Refrigeration refers to the transfer of heat from one space to another. Through its principle components (compressors, expansion valve, evaporator, condenser, thermostat, and refrigerant) marine refrigeration units provide cooling for your vessel in the form of ice chests, refrigerators, cooling drawers, etc.
- What are the different types of marine refrigeration units?
There are three main types of refrigeration units for your vessel, including:
- Thermoelectric Units
- Holding Plate Systems
- Self-Contained Units
- What are my options when it comes to powering a marine refrigerator?
There are a couple of ways in which you can power your marine refrigerator. First, you can choose a DC unit that runs from your boat's battery bank. Second, you can have an engine-driven unit that has a compressor belt running from the engine. Third, you can have an AC unit that is powered by a generator or shore power connection.
