on http://www.fosters.co.uk/  there is a link to a coolkeg and a description
of how it works. My Question, is this a safer way of doing solar cooling as
in this article http://www.humboldt1.com/~michael.welch/extras/solarice.pdf

They appear to be very similar in there method of operation but the fosters
one uses safer materials.

Also, what is zeolite?



Posted by Steve Spence on July 19, 2003, 10:23 pm
 Zeolites are microporous crystalline solids with well-defined structures.
Generally they contain silicon, aluminium and oxygen in their framework and
cations, water and/or other molecules wthin their pores. Many occur
naturally as minerals, and are extensively mined in many parts of the world.
Others are synthetic, and are made commercially for specific uses, or
produced by research scientists trying to understand more about their

Because of their unique porous properties, zeolites are used in a variety of
applications with a global market of several milliion tonnes per annum. In
the western world, major uses are in petrochemical cracking, ion-exchange
(water softening and purification), and in the separation and removal of
gases and solvents. Other applications are in agriculture, animal husbandry
and construction. They are often also referred to as molecular sieves.
