ABOUT US..

Ozefridge Industries Pty. Ltd. is a small Australian private family company that specialises in the development, manufacture and distribution of a small range of eutectic refrigeration systems. Always with a focus on best quality, performance and power efficiency.

Key personal:

Founder Peter Mackay entered the refrigeration industry in 1961 when truly evil refrigerants like Methyl Chloride, Sulphur and Ammonia were still used in refrigerators! Freon R12 was the new kid on the block and the oldies in the industry typically didn't like it!!

Now retired but mentoring the company and focused on research, Peter is ably replaced by Ozefridge and RMIT trained son Louie. 

In true family tradition wife and mother Cora looks after admin while another son (yes, there are six!) is the company accountant and yet another son looks after field research.

We may be a little biased but we proudly believe we manufacture the most thought out, powerful yet power efficient systems available.

 

This is why: 

 

Research and development that allows the latest technology to be incorporated in our products as we aim to provide adequate refrigeration in a variety of extreme conditions while doing so with the least power consumption possible. 

Until recently, Ozefridge manufactured and sold both stainless steel eutectic plate and aluminium cyclic cold plate refrigeration system packages mostly for marine use. As a result of extensive trials and especially with the introduction of our ECO2 power management benefit, we no longer offer cyclic systems and from our web pages Why Eutectic  and Trial Data it is easy to understand why.

The Manufacturing Process:  (All carried out at our facility in Northern Victoria, Australia.)

Right:

Firstly sub assemblies are produced in batches, tested  ready for unit assembly.

Here PCB's are loaded and polyurethane conformal coated before housing.

Completed controller panels are now ready for locating in the condensing unit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Right and Below: Final assembly commences.

Systems are manufactured in component batch lots here in Victoria Australia.

When ordered the chosen refrigeration unit, eutectic plates and any options 

are then coupled with the required pipe run, evacuated, gas charged, tested

and test run. Batching and quantity material purchases greatly reduces costs. 

The system is then 'pumped down to store the safe R134a refrigerant into the 

condensing unit and sealed off ready for packaging in a sturdy carton, with adequate foam and air bag protection, then to dispatch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After sales support:      

This is a *major priority for us at Ozefridge as many of our systems are in some

of the most remote areas where parts are simply unavailable and competent

personal improbable. 

A *major priority because satisfied customers are our most valuable supporters.

 

Relying on locally obtaining spare parts in remote areas simply will not happen.

We maintain a large supply of spare parts and can dispatch same day (not Sunday)

via AusPost express to all parts of the globe. 

We match this unequalled parts stocks and availability with seven day access to an

Ozefridge technician.  A phone call or email will have us with you for support.

This process is by far the best should service be required.

Other Ozefridge Activities:

We now specialise in DC powered eutectic systems only. Their superior

power efficiency and 'hold over ability makes the concept very attractive

to many other situations where refrigeration is needed 'off-grid'. 

We have now applied the processes and benefits of the Ozefridge Marine

12VDC eutectic systems to several other applications. 

Among the products engineered and now manufactured by Ozefridge is

this very different 12VDC front opening 80 litre Fridge Freezer (OZE 80)

Check here for more details:  OZE 80 Portable

We also also engineered and developed products for others including

truck sleeper cab eutectic air conditioners and eutectic shippers for perishable

goods including Pharmaceuticals.
