Who needs electricity? Absorption fridges do not.

Absorption cooling is well-known for its reliable, silent cooling. But do you know how it works? Well, firstly, a concentrated ammonia solution is heated in a boiler and expelled as vapour. The pressurised ammonia gas then liquefies in a condenser. When supplied with hydrogen, it evaporates and in the process extracts heat from the refrigerator thus lowering its temperature. The ammonia gas then enters the absorber where it is reabsorbed in a weak solution of ammonia. Finally, this saturated solution flows back to the boiler where the whole cycle starts again. And the fact this process does not need electricity – heating from a gas flame works fine – gives users the freedom to travel off-grid!

Who needs electricity? Absorption fridges do not.

When flexibility matters

With its removable freezer and flexible shelves, the Dometic RM 8500 offers you the ability to arrange your fridge just the way they want. Its 106 l capacity when the freezer is removed, makes the fridge ideal for long trips or large groups. A fingertip door opening mechanism and the user friendly control panel offer added convenience. Then there's the fact it can be powered by 3 separate energy supplies – AC, DC and gas – giving you the ultimate freedom to travel.
