Marine Equipment Trade Show, 17th to 19th November 2015, Hall 1 Stand 01.615

Dometic is launching the versatile new WAECO CRX refrigerator – the first and only marine refrigerator with a removable freezer compartment.

For the first time, a marine refrigerator with freezer compartment can be easily transformed into a larger capacity fridge-only unit or the temperature of the entire unit can be reduced as low as 17°F (-8°C) to provide a freezer-only unit. The breakthrough design is achieved by the patented removable freezer concept, which enables users to quickly slide out the freezer to adapt the unit as required.

Kester Petersson, Head of Business Development and Marketing EMEA – Marine Aftermarket, Dometic, said: “The WAECO CRX is the most versatile refrigerator ever developed for the marine market. Due to our patented design innovation which has allowed the removable freezer compartment, the CRX provides boat owners with a truly unique three-in-one cabinet unit which they can adapt and transform to suit their specific needs. No tools are needed to simply slide out the freezer in a moment to create extra space for tall bottles or large items.

“We have carefully designed the CRX so that users can operate and control the fridge with ease. The flush-mount thermostat control panel creates extra space and allows for convenient temperature adjustment, while the automatic LED-light system provides exceptional interior illumination. The latest technology has been incorporated into the development of the CRX to ensure quiet and economic operation, precise temperature control and durability, plus the stainless steel door means the fridge looks stylish as well.”

Providing boat owners with a three-in-one cabinet solution, the durable built-in WAECO CRX is available with a newly-designed stainless steel door which features a recessed, full-width door handle and unique dual pin locking mechanism for perfect, secure closing functionality.

The CRX features an innovative flush-mount electronic thermostat control panel, located on the interior side wall where users can easily reach it to make precise soft-touch temperature adjustments. An infrared sensor triggers a bright LED-light system to illuminate the interior. The interior temperature is controlled by a precise Negative Temperature Coefficient (NTC) sensor.

Ensuring optimum performance and noise reduction, the fridge uses a powerful electronic three-speed variable compressor which adjusts automatically to achieve the required cooling capacity. This ensures fast temperature pull-down time, gentle compressor start-up, maintenance of set temperature and minimal noise.

The robust tube and fin condenser enhances cooling performance, durability and corrosion resistance compared to a wire condenser. The compressor mounting plate is foamed in place to guarantee strong connection of all components.

Saving vital space on smaller boats, a special cut-out design on the back of the 50 and 65 litre models allows the units to be fitted against the vessel’s hull.

The sleek, modern-style WAECO CRX is available with either a stainless steel door or standard door in the following sizes: the 45-litre CRX-50, 57-litre CRX-65, 78-litre CRX-80, 109-litre CRX-110 and 136-litre CRX-140.
