Johnno said...

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...cooling system...ok you all...do a google search on

"crosley icyball"

Team Gherkin said...

ok ok... I cheated!
www.ggw.org/~cac/IcyBall/crosley_icyball.html

"The Icyball is an intermittent heat absorption type of refrigerator. A water/ammonia mixture is used as the refrigerant . Water and ammonia combine easily. So, they combine in the hot ball at room temperature.

When the hot ball is heated, for about 90 minutes, the ammonia evaporates first because it has a lower boiling point than water. The other cylinder is in water to help condense the ammonia in the cold ball. When the balls are fully charged, the cold ball is placed in the insulated box, as the ammonia evaporates to recombine with the water in the hot ball it removes heat, cooling the inside of the refrigerator for 24+ hours. A hole in the cold ball was for a special ice cube tray."

Otherwise I would have had *NO* idea!
Good job, Johnno!!!!!!!
