A system and method are provided for refrigerating at least one enclosure, such as an aircraft galley cart. The system includes at least one air-to-liquid heat exchanger, an eutectic thermal battery, a liquid-to-direct heat exchanger and at least one liquid-to-direct heat pump. The air-to-liquid heat exchangers are in thermal communication with the interiors of the enclosures. The thermal battery is in fluid communication with the air-to-liquid heat exchangers via a first coolant loop. The liquid-to-direct heat exchanger and the liquid-to-direct heat pum...
What is claimed is: 1. A system for refrigerating at least one enclosure comprising: at least one air-to-liquid heat exchanger capable of placing a coolant in a first coolant loop in thermal communication with at least one interior of the at least one enclosure such that the coolant can carry heat away from the at least one interior; an eutectic thermal battery including a phase change material, wherein the eutectic thermal battery is capable of receiving the coolant from the at least one air-to-liquid heat exchanger and thereafter placing the coolant i...
