Description

Evaptainers, mobile and modular evaporative coolers, are the world’s first mobile “zero-energy” refrigeration systems (cooling systems that require no external electricity) that are ideal for low-income, off-grid areas. Evaporative cooling as a technique has been employed successfully for centuries in products like the Pot-in-Pot refrigerator or Coolgardie safe. Proven to be effective for cooling perishable foods, evaporative cooling devices have been known to triple or quadruple the shelf-life of most produce in arid regions of the world. Our company has taken these ancient devices and upgraded them for modern and commercial use, creating a scalable clean energy refrigeration solution and enabling off-grid families to enjoy healthier, long lasting food.
