Eutectic systems consist of hollow tubes, beams or plates filled with an eutectic solution (phase change material) to store energy and produce a cooling effect whenever necessary to maintain the correct temperature in the refrigerated container.
Still, when refrigerator is back to depot and turned ON during everyday operation, the eutectic solution in the plates is almost completely thawed and temperature of air in refrigerated space is close to -20[degrees]C.
EUTECTIC SOLUTIONS: Eutectic solutions also called Phase Change Materials (PCM) are products that store and release thermal energy during the process of melting & freezing (changing from one phase to another).
