Refrigeration Conversion Kits
Over the past 30 years Nova Kool have been continually refining the design of their conversion kits. The LT201/LT211 kits are designed to convert any insulated space into a fridge or freezer. They’re easy to install, very efficient, reliable and economical.
The most common use for these systems is converting existing ice-boxes or coolers into a fridge or freezer. When designing a new fridge or freezer, the user must first fabricate an insulated box with a tight fitting door or lid, or use an existing good quality cooler.
The compressor condenser unit can be installed next to, or up to 3.6 metres away from, the enclosure. The copper tubing and wiring is included and can be played out as needed to connect the compressor
unit with the cooling evaporator plate in the cold-box. Suitable ventilation is needed around the compressor.
The LT kits are designed for ease of installation, efficiency and ultimate longevity.
Backed by a 2 year warranty.
What’s in the kit?
Nova Kool kits include everything you’ll need to make an insulated box with a lid or door that seals into a fridge or freezer.
All kits include a choice of evaporator plate, thermostat, and pre-charged refrigeration lines, plus an assortment of mounting hardware.
You’ll need to provide wiring from your 12 or 24 volt DC power source. The compressor needs to be located within 3.6 metres of the box in a well ventilated area, with air allowed to enter low and escape above.
Longer 5.5m (18 ft) line sets are available by by special order.
The heart of the LT201 system is the Danfoss BD series compressor controlled by a Danfoss DC electronic module and equipped with an efficient fan cooled condenser.
The system is pre-charged with R134a refrigerant. LT211 systems are equipped with the larger capacity BD50F compressor. An AC/DC multivoltage auto-switching module is also available as an option.
Nova Kool evaporator plates are equipped with re-useable quick connects and pre-charged with R134a refrigerant. Standard line sets are 3.6m (12
feet) long. Longer line sets of 5.5m (18 feet) are available by by special order.
Re-useable quick connects ensure that no gas is lost during installation.
A Danfoss mechanical thermostat is
included. These thermostat’s are very
precise and reliable. Kits also include resisters that allow you
to manually adjust the compressor speed
to your needs.
Installation Guide and Mounting hardware included.
