Over forty five years ago Sawafuji Electric Co. Ltd Japan, purchased the drawing of a unique product, a swing motor. They proceeded to develop this into the motor and pump used to power the Engel Portable fridge-freezer we know today.
From its early beginnings in the 1960's this unit has evolved into a powerful and efficient cooling unit. This is the only compressor of its type in the world and is wholly owned by Sawafuji Electric Co. Ltd Japan.
While many other portable fridge manufacturers procure parts from many sources all over the world Sawafuji Electric Co. Ltd alone have produced and improved this unit over many years. In this time changes made to this unique heart of the Engel portable fridge-freezers have further improved performance, reliability and power consumption. The swing motor is purpose built to withstand the shocks encountered in the bush or working environment. With its ability to operate at up to a 30° angle, this is a special product.
The latest model, the tri-voltage "F" series has the advantage of 12 volt, 24 volt and 240 volt operation built into the unit as well as automatic AC/DC changeover. Add to this the capability of being able to run from a quality AC generator or from a solar panel through a battery Engel keeps getting better.
While Engel Fridge-Freezers are not made in Australia they have become an Australian icon.
