Atwood Mobile Products LLC recently launched the industry’s only RV refrigerator that utilizes helium in the cooling system and an integrated tilt sensor.
According to a press release, the Atwood Helium Refrigerator is now standard equipment in several Keystone RV Co. towable products, including the Bullet, Passport and Hornet brands. The Helium Refrigerator is also available in the aftermarket through many of the major distributors around the country.
As the name suggests, helium gas has replaced hydrogen that is traditionally found in gas absorption refrigerators. The Elkhart, Ind.-based supplier said that helium allows the cooling system to run at a lower temperature, minimizing stress that can be caused by using a traditional gas absorption refrigerator. An exclusive integrated tilt sensor also provides a visual cue to the consumer showing if the refrigerator is in an “out-of-level situation.”
Atwood Helium Refrigerators are available in 7- and 8-cubic-foot class sizes. While both models provide the largest cubic foot of storage in their class, Atwood Helium Refrigerators are designed to fit other brands’ traditional 6- and 8-cubic-foot cabinet openings.
Atwood said the refrigerators also boast several standard upscale features including built-in door ajar alarm, designer blue crisper bins and LED lights, intuitive door handles and a modern display panel.
