Here is the ultimate refrigeration resource for power and sailboats. Calder,author of our best-selling Boatowner's Mechanical and Electrical Manual,covers in detail everything a boatowner needs to know for refrigeration self-sufficiency. A solid introduction to refrigeration cycles and variables is followed by an excellent chapter on building,modifying,and insulating the icebox. All system types are introduced and examined—engine-driven,12-volt,AC-powered,etc. —and later chapters describe the care,troubleshooting,and overhaul of each component,including the compressor,the condenser,the receiver/filter/dryer,and the expansion valve.
