    Default AcuTemp Refrigerator

    I recently bought an "AcuTemp AX56L" HemaCool mobile blood storage and cooling refrigerator from fellow steel soldiers member "firefinder" .
    It is awesome ! It weighs in at 148 Ibs so it's no light weight, this is a serious piece of equipment. It can operate on 120V A/C, 24V DC, 12V DC and internal batteries (for up to 8 hours in freeze mode) . It holds more then my RV's deep freeze and keeps it frozen to -9 F below zero ! (-23C) . It can also keep it at 35F degrees (cool mode) if you so desire.
    After I received mine I started to test it. It takes about 12 hours to reach it's maximum freeze temperature, but after that you can open the lid and retrieve anything stored in there without hardly any temperature rise.
    It uses an actual freezer compressor (that's one of the reasons it weighs so much) and the motorcycle size internal batteries are totally sealed (the other reason for the weight) . It came with the A/C cord, the 24V DC cord and operator and service manuals, a screwdriver (to remove the cover) a sponge, spare air filter and the operating system to load on your laptop to check the units function. All in all this is one primo unit ! I just wish I had more money to buy another !
    This is going on my "Great Alaskan Adventure" for sure !

    Man...that puts a Yeti cooler to shame.
    If i didn't have to pay in this year, I'd probably get one myself.

    They are pretty sweet! I saw the ad on the classifieds but I couldn't pull the trigger on the $$. Man you are lucky.

    You can borrow mine when you need it.

    There is another style blood cooler that is smaller and thermo-electric. That means they have no moving parts! They run on very little current and can still hold a case of beer. Cool stuff for sure.
    Don't worry about the size difference

    I've wanted to buy the ones on the classified. They look like great pieces of gear.

    The smaller "thermo-electric" units are OK, but they cannot bring the temperature down enough to really "freeze" any thing. This unit can bring it down to -9F degrees ! That's cold even for a standard refrigerator/freezer ! Or even a modern deep freeze ! I say modern as the older units back in the 50's and 60's and 70's could do it. That was when R22 and the other commercial refrigerants was still allowed !
    With this unit I can go on my Alaskan Adventure and bring my frozen dinners along. No need to try and cook ! Just reheat it in the microwave. Since I'll be bringing along my MEP-531 (2KW) that should handle my small microwave. I've also been known to have a "popsicle" when driving on a warm summer day !
