Air-Cooled Condensing Unit w/Roll Bond Evaporator
System 1M is perfect for converting a built-in ice box to a refrigerator/freezer box. The system includes the industry standard Danfoss BD50F, 12/24V compressor and a freezer roll bond evaporator box. The 1M system is a complete solution comparable to systems costing hundreds more.
The 1M can be improved in energy efficiency by upgrading the compressor power module. With a module upgrade to an Adaptive Energy Optimizing (AEO) module (010-1176), the compressor will be able to adapt its speed to the actual cooling demand. Accomplish the upgrade by selecting the substitue controller option below, addding the kit to the shopping cart and then go to Components->Compressors->Hermetic and select the alternative controller that is desired. The controller selected must be for the BD50F compressor.
With adequate insulation (3" minimum), this system configuration gives you up to a .45 cu ft freezer and up to 8 cu ft refrigerator. With an evaporator box upgrade (1M-O2) to a larger box (019-0350), capacity is increased and will give you up to a .70 cu ft freezer and up to 12 cu ft refrigerator.
We have assembled the kit using parts available through RParts. See the complete 1M parts list included with this kit. See the tools list to view the required tools needed for the assembly and installation process. You may want to get one of our refrigeration books to help you design your box and system. We recommend "Refrigeration for Pleasureboats" by Nigel Calder.
Kits are easy to put together with limited mechanical and soldering ability. We have put together an extensive assembly and installation manual for your use. Take a look at the manual and contact our DIY Support Forum if you have any questions. This forum is dedicated to support our system customers. Feel free to share your experiences and get the assistance you need.
