A New Refrigerator

The refrigerating apparatus which we illustrate herewith is the invention of two young Swedish engineers, Messrs B de Platen and C Munters, and is being manufactured and placed on the market by Electrolux Limited of 153, 155 Regent Street, London W1.

It works on the ammonia evaporation principle, and is continuous in its action. Its distinguishing feature is the fact that it embodies no moving elements whatsoever, no motor, fan, valve or other mechanical device forming part of its construction…

…In the Electrolux refrigerator the circulation is effected on the thermo-syphon principle, while the reducing valve is eliminated by an ingenious application of Dalton’s law of gaseous pressure.
