    refrigeration
  • the process of cooling or freezing (e.g., food) for preservative purposes
  • (refrigerant) any substance used to provide cooling (as in a refrigerator)
  • deliberately lowering the body's temperature for therapeutic purposes; "refrigeration by immersing the patient's body in a cold bath"
    installations
  • A thing installed, in particular
  • (installation) the act of installing something (as equipment); "the telephone installation took only a few minutes"
  • (installation) initiation: a formal entry into an organization or position or office; "his initiation into the club"; "he was ordered to report for induction into the army"; "he gave a speech as part of his installation into the hall of fame"
  • A large piece of equipment installed for use
  • (installation) facility: a building or place that provides a particular service or is used for a particular industry; "the assembly plant is an enormous facility"

Refrigeration for Pleasureboats: Installation, Maintenance and Repair
Refrigeration for Pleasureboats: Installation, Maintenance and Repair
You've just spent a day on the water under a sweltering sun. You sit back, enjoying the seclusion of a remote anchorage, lulled by the rattle of ice in your cold drink. A pretty picture, but a rare one aboard cruising boats.
A house is never without its utility umbrella, but when you pull your boat's shore-power plug you're on your own. Even good refrigeration systems use a lot of energy. And bad ones? Erase those ice cubes from your tropical fantasy.
Refrigeration for Pleasureboats explains how the cruising sailor can acquire the amenities--even the necessities--of an efficient onboard refrigeration system. Whether you're off for two days or two years, you must balance the highest possible cooling capacity with the lowest possible energy consumption. Calder explains clearly and logically how and why refrigeration components work, how to keep them working efficiently and economically, and what to look for when something goes wrong.
Boat refrigeration systems are phenomenally expensive. A modest refrigerator/freezer system, professionally built and installed, can cost more than $4,000. Yet these units can still have unpleasant side effects--such as killing the boat's batteries. Refrigeration for Pleasureboats provides all the step-by-step information an amateur needs to design and build a custom refrigeration unit that will cost far less than half the price of an off-the-shelf unit and will likely run better with far less drain on the batteries. With Calder's maintenance and troubleshooting tips, you'll be able to keep it running for years to come and keep those ice cubes tinkling in that frosted glass.

Directing the ice installation... Installation shots of Tavares Strachan's The Distance Between What We Have and What We Want (Arctic Ice Project), 2004-08. Photo by Sofiya Gurari. --- Tavares Strachan (born Nassau, the Bahamas, 1979). The Distance Between What We Have and What We Want (Arctic Ice Project), 2004?8. Ice, refrigeration unit, solar panels, battery system. Lent by the artist, Pierogi 2000, and Ronald Feldman Fine Art. In 2005, Tavares Strachan journeyed to the Alaskan Arctic and worked with a skilled team to extract a single two-and-a-half ton piece of ice from a frozen river. This ice block was shipped to the Bahamas (the artist’s birthplace) and exhibited there in hot summer weather, kept cold in a specially designed freezer powered by solar energy. The very same block of ice and cooling system are now on view here in Brooklyn. The act of transporting refrigerated Arctic ice to his childhood home was in part a response to Strachan’s experience as a child, when he found the idea of landscapes of snow and ice almost impossible to comprehend. The work suggests the interdependency of two extremes, with the heat of the sun in a warm climate keeping an icy piece of the Arctic intact. At the same time, it alludes to a number of environmental and social issues, including the realities of climate change, our sense of what is valuable, and the immigrant’s experience of displacement. The path of the ice block— which went from the Bahamas to Miami and now to Brooklyn— parallels that of many new Americans of Caribbean origin.
