Default Insulating with foam

Well, I've poured the insulation. It went pretty well. The initial pour went into the back side of the cold box, and seeped around the ducts into the main chamber, as I thought it would.

It didn't flow evenly, however, and ended up shifting the liner about a 1/2" off center. Oh well.

The subsequent pours filled it about 3/4 of the way, and I finished off with Great Stuff. I used the big gaps filler version, and filled in a layer at a time, about 5 layers. I think I got consistent fill with no gaps.


See the pics here(Flikr)

Testing has begun, and now I'm positive the fridge will have the cooling capacity I need.

There are some more pics of the kegerator, with the mess of wires. These show the lid, and some overall pics of the unit.

See them here.


I still need to drill holes for lines, and add the tower. Then it's off to the races!

Default Two Part Urethane Foam

Great Stuff takes an hour to expand. This stuff takes a few minutes.(it's hard in 15.)

Here's a video of the type of foam I used.


Yes, it is awesome.

I got it at uscomposites.com

That might be the coolest kegerator I've ever seen!
