Oceaneering/SPACEHAB Refrigerator Freezer (OSRF)

Project Info

Project Description

Iron Ring personnel assisted with the design, manufacture, and testing of this thermoelectric refrigerator. The hardware was used to store biological specimens flown on space shuttle mission STS-95 and then returned to Earth. Unique aspects included the use of a rectangular partial-vacuum vessel and a non-metallic closeout to minimize conductive heat loss.
