Our Ice Box Conversion Kits are designed to add refrigeration to an existing ice box, or to replace a previously installed conversion kit. Many of our competitors kits use a stamped plate aluminum evaporator, which are notoriously thin walled and easy to puncture. If a hole develops through puncture or corrosion the evaporator is non repairable and must be replaced. They are also known for developing leaks at the copper tubing to aluminum joint, as the disimilar metals tend to corrode. Our evaporators are a proprietary aluminum extrusion with 1/4" copper tubing snapped into channels on the back, making the evaporator extremely durable as well as repairable, with no aluminum to copper joint to worry about.

Our Conversion Kits are designed to be DIY installations with detailed installation instructions included.

Powered by 12 or 24 volt DC: Our easy to install refrigeration kit will convert a standard ice box to a highly efficient system that runs off your batteries. The basic kit is made up of three parts: First, the evaporator plate, which is installed in your ice box and provides the cold surface to cool your product. Second, the compressor/condensor unit which is mounted outside the box as close as possible, but can be up to 15 feet away. This is connected to the evaporator with copper tubing. Third, the cold control (thermostat) is mounted in the ice box and allows you to select refrigerator or freezer temperatures.

Dura-Coil Evaporators: Three standard styles are available: freezer box and two blower style options. The box style allows you to have a small freezer compartment inside the refrigerator. The box can be mounted vertically or horizontally depending on your application. A flapper door helps keep the cold inside the box, especially when the box is mounted horizontally. The blower style uses two plates sandwiched together with a 1.5" air gap. A small fan pulls air between the plates and blows out into the fridge. This style provides the most amount of cooling in the smallest size. With cooling plates in the front and back, you get twice the evaporator surface area in the same size footprint. The fan offers two main advantages, less temperature difference between the top and bottom of the fridge compartment, and better heat exchange between the air and the evaporator plate, resulting in greater efficiency.

Compressor/Condenser unit: The heart of a refrigeration system is the compressor. It pulls low pressure gas from the evaporator then compresses it into a high pressure gas that passes throught the condenser coil, releasing the heat that was absorbed in the evaporator and condensing to a liquid. The Danfoss BD-35 compressor is driven by a powerful 3 phase brushless DC motor.
