Vitrifrigo 20 Litre Top Opening 12 Volt Fridge

Monday, November 28th, 2016

Vitrifrigo have developed a new top opening 12 volt fridge ideal for narrow depth work surfaces in smaller campervan conversions. Perfect for models like the Toyota Granvia, VW Caddy and other conversions on smaller chassis.

12 Volt Top Opening Fridge

The new TL20 has a decent 20 litre capacity in a top opening fridge that is only 230mm deep. The internal height of 325mm allows you to stand standard wine bottles to upright.
Installation is straight forward with the compressor mounted below the fridge. The thermostat is separate and can be mounted up to 0.8m from the fridge maximise the usable space inside the fridge.

The TL20 uses the BD Micro, which is super quiet and 45% lighter than the standard BD35 compressor. Power consumption is a very modest 0.2A/h in UK summer time.

Vitrifrigo Launch Super Slim 12 Volt Fridge for Campervans

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016

Vitrifrigo have developed a new super slim 12 volt fridge for the latest Mercedes Vito conversion from Technoform and Wellhouse Leisure – launched at this years Motorhome and Caravan Show at the NEC.  The new C25P super slim 12 volt fridge has a total depth inc door of just 322mm enabling it to be fitted flush within the narrow kitchen units giving ample room for the extra wide bed that is a key feature of the conversion.

Key features of C25P Slim 12 Volt Fridge

The C25 super slim features the BD Micro compressor from Secop, which at just 2.5kg reduces the weight of the fridge compressor by a massive 45% in turn reducing the total weight of the fridge to just 13kg.  To maximise volume of this 12 volt mini fridge the compressor and cooling unit are remote to the cabinet on 1.4m of flexible pipe allowing the compressor to mounted separately up to 1m away.

To make best possible use of the internal space, the C25P is set up as a larder fridge using a thermostatically controlled evaporator plate on the back wall instead of an ice box.

The C25P has excellent efficiency thanks to the BD Micro and Vitrifrigo’s aluminium finned condenser (design and manufactured in-house) giving typical consumption of a tiny 0.3A/h (in UK summer time).

The fridge is supplied with grey trim and door panel, which can be replaced with 1mm panel to match the conversion as you can see in the Wellhouse Liesure conversion below.  The door is positively locked using the excellent Vitrifrigo Air lock catch (with vent position that keeps the fridge fresh when not and use) and the door hinging is interchangeable, left or right.
