World’s 1st Magnetic Refrigerator launched which can play the role of “Superfridge”

French firm Cooltech Applications has launched what it claims as the world’s first commercially available magnetic refrigeration system. It can serve as a “Superfridge” slashing down both the environmental as well as economic challenges which the current electricity appliances face.

The firm says this system will work without the use of any refrigerant gas, and can be used in everything from a medical refrigerator (pictured) or a display case to a wine cellar

The Magnetic Refrigeration System (MRS)  achieves refrigeration by passing a water coolant through magnetocaloric materials undergoing repeated magnetization-demagnetization cycles. Glycol water is used as a coolant fluid to transfer heat between cold and hot sources.The system works on the concept of magnetocaloric effect.

The system works without any refrigerant gas, making it more environmentally efficient than conventional refrigerators.
