Details

Tittle:
A novel, low powered, economical and environmentally friendly refrigeration air conditioning unit
Summary:
A UK inventor has designed a novel economical refrigerated air conditioning unit that uses ice as the cooling medium, requires minimal power to cool a room, and which is intended for both domestic and industrial use particularly in hot countries. Partners and/or licensees are sought to assist in the development of the invention and its ultimate commercialisation via research cooperation, license or commercial agreement with technical assistance.
Description:
Air conditioning units around the world are very inefficient, they require large amounts of energy to keep a space cool, making them expensive to use and a luxury to buy.

However, a UK inventor has designed a novel refrigerated air conditioning unit that requires minimal power to cool a room, has fully automated functionality, low volume fans for quiet operation, and has a slimline form factor for discreet installation.

The new unit, which uses ice as the cooling medium and which can be attached to a domestic freezer, is able to control when and for how long the ice is needed by use of a hand crank. When the ice starts to melts, it is recycled back to the freezer unit for refreezing. Warm air is drawn into the unit where it closely passes around the outside of the ice, then the air passes up the inside of the ice block where it is blown into the room.

By using a column of ice the multi-economical air conditioner could offer increased efficiency using cooling technology principles usually only seen in large commercial buildings. This effectively creates a "storage cooler" that requires minimal power to cool a room.

The new invention is intended for both domestic and industrial use, particularly in hot countries, and can be applied for use in domestic rooms, offices, schools, shops and even industrial premises.

The inventor is seeking potential partners and/or licensees to assist in the development of the invention and its ultimate commercialisation via research cooperation, license or commercial agreement with technical assistance.
