Another great success for Dometic Group: The all new CoolMatic CRX range of refrigerators is just announced to be the winner of the well-known and renowned Pittman Innovation Award 2016.
”Thanks to Dometic Marine’s new WAECO CRX range of three-in-one refrigerators/freezers, featuring a patented removable freezer compartment, organizing the cold stuff for a longer cruise just got a whole lot easier”, judging panel says.
The key to this new system is a condenser plate that is folded in such a way that the majority of its surface area is above a pullout horizontal insulated panel. This panel has a hinged door that is used to create a separate freezer compartment comprising about ten percent of its unit’s interior volume. With the panel removed, however, the whole interior can be used as either a refrigerator or a freezer, depending on how you set the temperature.
The system’s flush-mounted control panel also has a diagnostic function, while the three-speed compressor adjusts automatically to achieve the required cooling capacity.’ There’s nothing more to say.
Named after Freeman K. Pittman, SAIL Magazine’s long-term technical editor who died in 1996, the Pittman Innovation awards recognize outstanding new products created by a sailing industry that is perpetually innovative in its thinking. In either case, Dometic engineers have once again more than done justice to the memory of Freeman K. Pittman.
