The performance of the first Jordan Badia’s solar powered refrigerator

We are facing a significant challenge in Jordan’s Badia region. Such challenge present us given that it will be environmentally protected with easy access to the refrigeration process to food and medical vaccines keeping at a reasonably and economical low cost. Solar cooling method that is generated from the sun as a substitute for batteries or electrical power is characteristic of its kind to store a power system for continued use. A pilot project of solar refrigerator was tested to collect technological data on a standard basis so the method control tests are accurate andprecise. Solar refrigerator does not require electricity, which utilizes a combination of heat conduction and convection. In addition, it can be made from readily available material such as cardboard, sand, and recycled metal. It is constructed from two cylinders: an inner metal cylinder, fitted inside, and an outer cylinder that can be made of wood or plastic, etc, and organic material such as (sand, wool, or soil) placed in the left space between the two cylinders which is then saturated with water. As heat from the sun evaporates the water, the inner chamber is cooled to reduce and maintains the temperature at (6°C).
