Abstract:

A preliminary fact-finding survey of three representative stations in the Pacific area confirms the existence of a real problem in the rapid deterioration of refrigeration appliances. Ambient conditions at tropical or sub-tropical locations accelerate the decay of equipment so that service lives are substantially decrease . Early replacement and constant maintenance add costs that appear to justify the development of special duty units for use in corrosive environments. The establishment of design features of cooling and refrigeration appliances especially constructed for use in corrosive areas is recommended.
