In 1748 William Cullen demostrated artificial refrigeration for the first time , at Glasgow university . This discovery was however not put to pratical use.In 1823 , Michael Faraday learned how to change ammonia vapor to a liquid by compressing it ad the liquid is allowed to evaporate this pr…ocess we have our modern fridges. Carlinde a Swiss inventor invented the first refridgerating machine in 1874 . He used it to cool beer. In 1877 Linde used ammonia as the liquid in the machine. Modern fridges are based on the method. Frezzers work in the same way, but are more powerful and give a greater cooling effect. IN a frezzer food stays frozen at-18 degree centigrade. (MORE)

Italian Ilpea company invented the magnetic refrigerator-door gaskets.. Please refer to the website http://www.ilpea.com/en/index.htm for further information.. Below is adapted from the information of above website:. http://www.ilpea.com/en/guarnizioni.htm. ==== . GASKETS for the refrigeration i…ndustry TECHNOLOGY AND FUNCTIONALITY . Originally, sealing between the door and the refrigerator was achieved by using tubular extruded profiles in vulcanised rubber, injection spliced at the joint and compressed with a lever tumbler lock. ILPEA has developed and created a sealing system by means of a gasket made of non-migrating PVC compound. The flexible magnetic profile inserted into the gasket guarantees that the door shuts hermetically and this has drastically changed the concept of sealing in the refrigeration sector. Today, as market leader, ILPEA is constantly searching for state-of-the-art solutions and has developed three fundamental product ranges:. Magnetic and non-magnetic gaskets This is the first group of products developed by the Company. The design of ILPEA's gaskets is constantly being updated and improved with innovative solutions in regard to functionality and use of materials. Thanks to this, hinge rolling has been eliminated and the sealing tightness and the compression set have reached an optimal level. . Twin This co-extruded gasket made of rigid and soft materials represents the most innovative aspect of this market. The base is formed by a rigid part which has at least one V-shaped flexible flange which snaps onto the door inner liner, while the soft part consists of a balloon which grants the normal gasket bellow function. This allows robotized assembling of the gasket onto the door and easier installation of the spare gaskets. . Breakers (rigid frames) ILPEA has developed a wide range of rigid frames made of shock resistant PVC for chest freezers, commercial freezers and refrigerated display units. Thanks to a particular process developed by the Company, it is now possible to splice the corners of the frames composed of extruded lengths in such a way as to obtain a round angle that has an internal and external radius of up to 30mm. . ILPEA has set up production facilities in the proximity of customers' plants, in compliance with its "global partnership" strategy. As a result, the Company is in a position to supply its products to the world's main manufacturers of refrigerators and freezers by the "just in time" concept. ILPEA is continuously improving the aforementioned products and has obtained 14 international patents for innovations in this sector. (MORE)
in ancient time the people use ice and snow to preserve the food. Then they think about a machine to cool the food . this leads to the invention of refrigerator.
The first known method of artificial refrigeration was demonstrated by William Cullen at the University of Glasgow in Scotland in 1748. Cullen used a pump to create a partial vacuum over a container of diethyl ether, which then boiled , absorbing heat from the surrounding air.

Various mechanical refrigeration devices appeared over the years. . The first known artificial Refrigeration was demonstrated by William Cullen at the University of Glasgow in 1748, and relied on the process explained by Michael Faraday, but it was not practical. It was big, bulky and took up too …much room. . An American inventor named Oliver Evans invented a refrigerator in 1804. In 1834, Jacob Perkins invented the "Practical Version" that was a big hit. . Dr John Gorrie, a Scot, received a patent in 1851 for an ice-making machine. . Carl Paul Gottfried von Linde (1842-1934) developed refrigeration in Germany in 1876 . He set up a commercial company in 1879. . While the process of the invention of refrigeration actually began as early as the 1700s and many appliances got their start from those early ideas, the idea of the home refrigerator was started by a Frenchman named Marcel Audiffren. His idea and patents were puchased by the American Audiffren Refrigerating Machines Company and units were built in Fort Wayne Indiana by General Electric. They were the precursors to the Frigidaire. The first unit was sold in 1911 for about $1000.00. (see the related link below) (MORE)

Before refrigerators were invented people cooled their food with ice and snow.. A pantry - a small room off the kitchen to store food, which may have had special insulation to ensure the room was cooler than the rest of the house.. Further information: . People also used ice-chests. An ice chest… was a wooden cabinet with a metal receptacle for holding ice, and a drainiage pipe for disposing of the water as ythe ice melted. Quite simply, the ice was placed in the top of the ice chest and, as cold air falls, the food in the cabinet below the ice receptacle was kept cold by its proximity to the ice, without being damaged by the melting water.. A common item for cooling foods in colonial Australia was the Coolgardie safe. It consisted of a metal "safe" with screen-wire-like holes, which was hung outside on a verandah. Food which needed to be cool was placed inside the safe. Over the safe was placed a hessian cloth, dampened, so that as the breeze blew through the cloth, it cooled down the food inside. The safe hung from the ceiling, and often had a tin cup placed around the wire from which it hung, filled with water, so that ants could not descend the wire and get to the food.. Not all that long ago, people would work with smaller amounts of food that they could use within a reasonable time (daily shopping from a local farmer) and would do more preservation - like pickling, smoking, drying, making preserves or canning.

Before the refrigerator was invented, people used iceboxes, whichwere essentially big coolers with a block of ice. Even before that,food was preserved by salting, curing, smoking, drying, andcanning.
The refrigerator was no invented by an African American pr in America at all. In 1873 Carl von Linde built the first practical and portable compressor refrigeration machine in Munich, Germany.
The gas refrigeration was jointly invented by one Albert Einsteinand his former student called LeÃÂ³ SzilÃÂ¡rd. The gas refrigerationthat they invented had no moving parts and operated at a constantpressure.
No, John Standard did not invent the refrigerator. The man whoinvented the refrigerator was named Oliver Evans. He invented thefridge in the year of 1805.
it was invented so food could stay cold and would not spoil. It was also invented to prevent diseases like e-coli and salmonella.
In the yr 1876.reigerator was invented by carl paul gottfried von linde.bt there practicle use in homes starts from 1911.....
actually Thomas Elkins did not invent the refrigerator he invented the refrigerating apperatus. He invented it to cool nonperishable foods also to store and chill corps's
Immediately before the home refrigerator became commn, the Ice Boxwas used in many homes. This was an insulated container that waskept cool by a block of ice placed in a section at the top. The icewas replaced every day or so by an "Ice Man" who made homedeliveries the way "Milk Men" used to do. The… Ice Box was lesseffective than a modern refrigerator, and smaller in size, so lessfood was stored in it, for shorter amounts of time. The ice box didnot have a freezer section. . Before and during the ice box era, people in colder climatescould keep some things cool, at least during the winter, by puttingthem outside on their windows. Some people used cold cellars andice houses. They would dig a cellar and it would be a bit cooler insummer than the house was, so they would store fruits, canned food,etc., there. Similarly, others might have had a storage space duginto the ground. The sun only warms the outer layer of thesoil. . Ice houses were stocked with ice that was harvested fromfrozen-over lakes during the winter. The ice house could be used asa storage place for food, or the ice could be sold for cooling on ahot summer day, or to make iced cream and other seasonalspecialities. . Where these services were not available, people did not keeptheir food cold. They could preserve food by canning, drying,salting, or pickeling, or, in the case of grains, by turning itinto alcoholic drinks. . A common item for cooling foods in colonial Australia was theCoolgardie safe. It consisted of a metal "safe" withscreen-wire-like holes, which was hung outside on a verandah.

Carl von Linde invented the first methyl ether refrigerator in1874. In 1876, he developed an ammonia refrigerator. Linde was aGerman engineer who was born in 1842 and died in 1934.
It was created by engineers employed by Gustavus F. Swift for the transportation of meat. Swift sold cattle but saw flaws in the industry so wanted to be able to do it all from Chicago. Once it was developed, Swift could slaughter, butcher, and pack meat that could now be shipped all across America.… (MORE)
the refrigerated railroad car was invented because the food needed to be cold on trips on the rail road.
it made people be able to eat food from other countries.. when you transport for example fish, you need a refrigerator to preserve the fish in so it doesn't spoil
James Harrison invented his refrigerator on the Barwon River atRocky Point in Geelong, Victoria, Australia. His invention wascalled an ether vapor-compression refrigeration system.
Actually , He invented a refrigerator using an alternate method from the one we are used to. It only uses a small heat source to provider refrigeration.
In 1805, an American inventor, Oliver Evans (September 13, 1755 Ã¢??April 15, 1819), designed the first refrigeration machine. He wasthe first to describe vapor-compression refrigeration.
The domestic refrigerator was invented in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Therefrigerator was invented by Fred W. Wolf in 1913.
John Standard, African-American inventor, invented patented improvements to the early refrigerator. Please see Related Link for more information.
THOMAS MOORE is a writer. he is in no way related to inventions in the field of science.
\nFrederick Jones (with Joseph Numero) in 1938? No! Did Jones change America's eating habits by making possible the long-distance shipment of perishable foods? No! \n. \nRefrigerated ships and railcars had been moving perishables across oceans and continents even before Jones was born (see refriger…ated transport timeline). Trucks with mechanically refrigerated cargo spaces appeared on the roads at least as early as the late 1920s (see the proof). Further development of truck refrigeration was more a process of gradual evolution than radical change. (MORE)
I'm not sure it is possible to know when it was invented , but it was patented June 14 1891.
Yes, Einstein did invent a refrigerator. He only designed one. He did not invent the FIRST one. . Einstein did however invent the FIRST refrigerator having no moving parts and thus requiring no seals, which might develop leaks. This was very important at the time, as all available refrigerants …were either toxic or flammable and refrigerator leaks were killing people! However his invention became irrelevant just a few years later when the safe freon refrigerants were invented. The only place where it ultimately saw use was in the liquid metal cooling systems of certain types of nuclear reactors, where the sodium and potassium metal coolants used react violently on contact with either water or air.

Cooling foods down helps to slow the development of bacteria. There was not yet a reliable, long-lasting coolant for food. So William Cullen helped us out.
Fred W. Wolf invented the first electric home refrigerator. It wasinvented in Fort Wayne, Indiana in 1913. These were the firstrefrigerators used in homes.
The first method of refrigeration (cooling air by the evaporation of liquids in a vacuum) was invented in 1748 by William Cullen of the University of Glasgow, Scotland; Cullen did not apply his discovery to any practical purposes. Michael Farady, an English physicist liquefied ammonia to cause cooli…ng (in the 1800's). Faraday's idea would eventually lead to the development of compressors, which compress gas to liquid form. The American inventor Oliver Evans designed the first refrigeration machine in 1805. In 1844, John Gorrie, an American doctor from Florida made a device based on Evans' invention that would make ice in order to cool the air for yellow fever patients. The first electric refrigerator was invented in 1803 by Thomas Moore. The first commercial refrigerator designed to keep food cold was sold in 1911 (by the General Electric Company) and in 1913 (invented by Fred W. Wolf of Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA); these model consisted of a unit that was mounted on top of an ice box. A self-contained refrigerator (with a compressor on the bottom of the cabinet) was invented by Alfred Mellowes in 1915. Mellowes produced this refrigerator commercially (each unit was hand made), but was bought out by W.C. Durant (the president of General Motors) in 1918, who started the Frigidaire Company in order to mass-produce refrigerators in the USA. (MORE)

The Refrigerator train cars were invented in 1867 and was patented by J.B. Sutherland. His nationality is the USA.
Albert Einstein co-invented with SzilÃ¡rd LeÃ³ a new type of refrigeration unit that received 45 patents and it had no moving parts, so it it could not leak toxic gasses from faulty seals. He was inspired by a newspaper article about a family in Berlin who had died from inhaling toxic fumes from… a refrigerator leaking itâs refrigerant. (MORE)

Ever notice how some people call them iceboxes?

There were regular deliveries of these blocks of ice for people to refill their iceboxe…s. (MORE)
Einstein did not fully invent the fridge he just made plans for innovating an invention similar to the fridge at his laboratory in Princeton New Jersey
In 1834 Jacob Perkins built the first working refrigerator however it was'nt considered a success until 1855 when John Gorrie put together a more effective model .

To keep things cold. Before they invented refrigerators, they used cellars to cool things. A cellar is underground and is made from rocks, so it was cooler. And so our food stays edible!
People could now start to refrigerate their food and their food wouldn't spoil over the summer.
Before the invention of the refrigerator, icehouses were used to provide cool storage for most of the year. Placed near freshwater lakes or packed with snow and ice during the winter, they were once very common. Natural means are still used to cool foods today. On mountainsides, runoff from melting …snow is a convenient way to cool drinks, and during the winter one can keep milk fresh much longer just by keeping it outdoors. Schematic of Dr. John Gorrie's 1841 mechanical ice machine. In the 11th century, the Persian physicist and chemist Ibn Sina(Latinized name: Avicenna) invented the refrigerated coil, which condenses aromatic vapours.[verification needed] This was a breakthrough in distillation technology and he made use of it in his steam distillation process, which requires refrigerated tubing, to produce essential oils.[verification needed] Eerste coÃ¶peratieve diepvrieskluis in de Alblasserwaard Weeknummer, 56-25 - Open Beelden - 13421.ogv Collective refrigerators in the Alblasserwaard, Dutch newsreel 1956 The first known artificial refrigeration was demonstrated by William Cullen at the University of Glasgow in 1748. The American inventor Oliver Evans, acclaimed as the "father of refrigeration," invented the vapor-compression refrigeration machine in 1805. Heat was removed from the environment by recycling vaporized refrigerant, where it moved through a compressor and condenser, where it eventually reverted to a liquid form to repeat the process. However, Evans built no such refrigeration unit. In 1834, Jacob Perkins modified Evans' original design, building the world's first refrigerator and filing the first legal patent for refrigeration using vapor-compression. John Gorrie, an American doctor from Florida, invented the first mechanical refrigeration unit in 1841-based on Evans' original invention to make ice in-to cool air for yellow fever patients. Gorrie's mechanical refrigeration unit received a patent in 1851. American professor Alexander C. Twining of Cleveland, Ohio patented an early vapor-compression refrigerator in 1853 that was fully capable of producing a ton of ice per day. In 1856, James Harrison, an immigrant from Scotland living in Australia, developed an ice making machine using ammonia and an ether compressor. It was used in the brewing and meat packing industries of Geelong, Victoria. Ferdinand CarrÃ© of France developed a somewhat more complex system in 1859. Unlike earlier compression-compression machines, which used air as a coolant, CarrÃ©'s equipment contained rapidly expanding ammonia. In 1867, Andrew Muhl, an immigrant from France, built an ice-making machine in San Antonio, Texas, to help service the expanding beef industry before moving it to Waco in 1871. In 1873, the patent for this machine was contracted by the Columbus Iron Works, a company acquired by the W. C. Bradley Co., which produced the world's first commercial ice-makers. In 1913, refrigerators for home and domestic use were invented by Fred W. Wolf of Fort Wayne, Indiana with models consisting of a unit that was mounted on top of an ice box. In 1914, engineer Nathaniel B. Wales of Detroit, Michigan, introduced an idea for a practical electric refrigeration unit, which later became the basis for the Kelvinator. A self-contained refrigerator, with a compressor on the bottom of the cabinet was invented by Alfred Mellowes in 1916. Mellowes produced this refrigerator commercially but was bought out by William C. Durant in 1918, who started the Frigidaire Company to mass-produce refrigerators. In 1918, Kelvinator Company introduced the first refrigerator with any type of automatic control. The absorption refrigerator was invented by Baltzar von Platen and Carl Munters from Sweden in 1922, while they were still students at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. It became a worldwide success and was commercialized by Electrolux. Other pioneers included Charles Tellier, David Boyle, and Raoul Pictet. Carl von Linde was the first to patent and make a practical and compact refrigerator. General Electric "Monitor-Top" refrigerator, introduced in 1927. These home units usually required the installation of the mechanical parts, motor and compressor, in the basement or an adjacent room while the cold box was located in the kitchen. There was a 1922 model that consisted of a wooden cold box, water-cooled compressor, an ice cube tray and a 9-cubic-foot (0.25 m3) compartment, and cost $714. (A 1922 Model-T Ford cost about $450.) By 1923, Kelvinator held 80 percent of the market for electric refrigerators. Also in 1923 Frigidaire introduced the first self-contained unit. About this same time porcelain-covered metal cabinets began to appear. Ice cube trays were introduced more and more during the 1920s; up to this time freezing was not an auxiliary function of the modern refrigerator. The first refrigerator to see widespread use was the General Electric "Monitor-Top" refrigerator introduced in 1927, so-called because of its resemblance to the gun turret on the ironclad warship USS Monitor of the 1860s. The compressor assembly, which emitted a great deal of heat, was placed above the cabinet, and surrounded with a decorative ring. Over a million units were produced. As the refrigerating medium, these refrigerators used either sulfur dioxide, which is corrosive to the eyes and may cause loss of vision, painful skin burns and lesions, or methyl formate, which is highly flammable, harmful to the eyes, and toxic if inhaled or ingested. Many of these units are still functional today. These cooling systems cannot legally be recharged with the hazardous original refrigerants if they leak or break down.[where?] The introduction of Freon in the 1920s expanded the refrigerator market during the 1930s and provided a safer, low-toxicity alternative to previously used refrigerants. Separate freezers became common during the 1940s, the popular term at the time for the unit was a deep freeze. These devices, or appliances, did not go into mass production for use in the home until after World War II. The 1950s and 1960s saw technical advances like automatic defrosting and automatic ice making. More efficient refrigerators were developed in the 1970s and 1980s, even though environmental issues led to the banning of very effective (Freon) refrigerants. Early refrigerator models (from 1916) had a cold compartment for ice cube trays. From the late 1920s fresh vegetables were successfully processed through freezing by the Postum Company (the forerunner of General Foods), which had acquired the technology when it bought the rights to Clarence Birdseye's successful fresh freezing methods.
