Solar Panel Powered Compressors - Cooling with renewable Energy
With BD solar compressors Secop offers a refrigeration solution for places with poor or no power supply.
Due to the exceptionally low starting current, batteries are not necessary if an ice bank is used for energy storage.
At times when there is no sun the ice packs keep the cabinet at the set temperatures.
BD solar compressors offers numerous functions for manufacturers within the rapidly growing area of mobile and stationary refrigeration. For example storage and transportation of drugs, storage of food under difficult conditions without power supply, ice cream stands in holiday resorts, remote bottle coolers, refrigerators in boats, just to name a few.
Its wide voltage range (10-45 V DC) makes the BD35F & BD35K very suitable for photovoltaic powering.
An example on the latter was displayed at an UN Johannesburg Summit. On this occasion we supplied the compressor for a solar cabinet, complying with the tough demands of UNESCO (storage for 5 days without power supply).
