Top-of-the-line systems designed for complete reliability, even in the toughest tropical weather conditions, updated with a quick fit system for easy do-it-yourself hookup and removal without the assistance and expense of a refrigeration tech. Since pioneering marine 12V refrigeration systems more than 25 years ago, Adler/Barbour has continued to use the latest available technology to make these systems the most reliable of their kind. Both the Air-Cooled CU-100 and Air/Water-Cooled CU-200 use the high-performance Danfoss BD50F compressor, with up to 25% better cooling performance than the BD35F in the same size footprint!

How to Create a ColdMachine or Super ColdMachine System
Now you can custom configure a refrigeration system to your boat, taking into account available ice box space and the conditions in which you’ll use your boat. First, select the compressor/condensing unit that matches your performance requirements: the Air-Cooled CU-100 is excellent for temperate climates, while the Air/Water-Cooled CU-200 is the one to choose if you’re headed for the tropics.

Then, select an evaporator style that matches your box best. Evaporators include all parts necessary to create a complete system, including the thermostat, mounting hardware, ice cube trays and owner’s manual. For installation flexibility, compressors may be installed up to 15' from the evaporator plate. Dimensions are listed for each component. Note: The CU-100 and CU-200 Cold Machines cannot be used with evaporators manufactured prior to January 2001. One-year warranty.

    Installed as a replacement for a 15 year old AB refrigeration unit. Installed in conjunction with a AB Cold Machine. This unit is a great improvement over our old unit.

    Evaporator VD=152

    By Max

    from Kudat, Sabah Malaysia

    Comments about Waeco Adler Barbour ColdMachine VD-152 Large Vertical Evaporator:

    I am using the evaporator in Malaysia with temperatures in the high 80th and it works great. My proble is the connection of the copper pipe to aliminum. First it rusted out, we fixed it, then it broke off. There is no support on the copper pipe to stop the aluminum from kinking. Now after 3 years I need a new unit.
