Custom Eutectic Plates for one of a kind boxes.

   Eutectic holding plates store energy for long periods of time each day. The advantage of this plate is a reduction in electrical power for 16 hours and will have little affect on refrigerator or freezer food. For the day sailor there is no need to run the alternator the day the boat is away from shore power. In most boats with alternative energy these larger plates may not require energy from boat's engine alternator. Disadvantage of holding plates are they are generally larger than eutectic cycling plates and take up more box space, one half gallon of eutectic fluid per cu ft of refrigerator and one gallon per cu ft of freezer. Holding plates also allow a eutectic temperature drift where the smaller cycling eutectic plates plate always tends to hold plate temperature.
