Thermodynamics says something about being cool

Gas-absorption refrigeration using ammonia and water was invented by Ferdinand and Edmond Carré in 1858, but their ice-making machine used a compressor. Von Platen and Munters were the first to remove all moving parts.

Frigidaire is now the U.S. division of Electrolux.
