    Hi from Hannover Germany

    Noticed that you may have used ceramic fiber board as a liner, good for 1425 C for along period of time . If you used drywall it only has a 1/2 hour rating and the concrete blocks will crack and explode soon after the fire starts , because of moisture in them So far it looks well made. You...

    Fire Safe Cabinet

    Read the pdf. The container sized fire storage looks like a hell on earth occurrence :D . Maybe they should adopt the fireworks storage with high earthen walls to prevent fire radiating to adjacent containers. jimjr

    Inverter size for running fridge?

    I beg to disagree. All air conditioners and refrigerators use a smaller oil filled cap to start and run the compressor. The size of the cap is sized for barely enough to fit them in a normal sized circuit breaker and be able to start them. If you had enough capacitance to equal or exceed the...

    Inverter size for running fridge?

    A oil filled 100mfd - 50mfd motor run capacitor would handle the surge and inverter will not see the big power spike. Mount it in a sealed metal box with a 20 amp circuit breaker to prevent capacitor failure problems ( possible fire ) Turn the inverter on first, second the capacitor , third...
