Title
(EN) REFRIGERATION APPARATUS

Abstract
(EN)
Refrigerators, with particular, but not exclusive, application to the storage and transport of vaccines are disclosed. A refrigerator has a payload container (20) within which items can be placed for temperature-controlled storage. The payload container (20) is submerged in a reservoir (21) that contains water. The reservoir has a cooling region containing the payload container and a headspace containing water that is, in use, higher than the payload container. Cooling means, that might include a refrigeration unit (30) having cooling elements (32) or a cold thermal mass can cool waterwithin the headspace. Where there is a refrigeration unit, a power supply, typically solar powered, can act as a source of power for the refrigeration unit. Embodiments may include a freezer compartment close to the cooling elements (32). Alternatively, the cooling region may comprise a pipe manifold within the payload container.

La présente invention concerne des réfrigérateurs destinés en particulier, mais de façon non exclusive, au stockage et au transport de vaccins. Ce réfrigérateur comporte un compartiment à charge utile (20) à l'intérieur duquel il est possible de mettre des articles devant être conservés à température régulée. Ce compartiment à charge utile (20) est plongé dans un réservoir (21) contenant de l'eau. Le réservoir comporte une zone froide contenant le compartiment à charge utile, et un volume additionnel rempli d'eau, lequel volume additionnel doit rester au-dessus du compartiment à charge utile pendant l'utilisation. L'eau contenue dans le volume additionnel peut être refroidie au moyen d'organes de réfrigération tels qu'une unité réfrigérante (30) pourvue d'éléments réfrigérants (32), ou qu'une masse thermique froide. Dans le cas de la présence d'une unité réfrigérante, une alimentation électrique telle qu'à énergie solaire, peut servir de source d'électricité à l'unité réfrigérante. Certains modes de réalisation peuvent comporter un compartiment congélateur à proximité des éléments réfrigérants (32). Selon un autre mode de réfrigération, la zone froide peut comporter une rampe à tubulures à l'intérieur du compartiment à charge utile.
