I understand that the unit John Gorrie built had its problems with leakage which hampered its productivity. Also his invention was not necessarily used in producing refrigerated air, but that he used the iced produced by his patent, by putting it in buckets to cool the air in the rooms or room. This was done by putting holes in the buckets and letting the ice melt, and air would pass through the dripping cold water caused by the melted ice and in turn would cool the air in the room..(would you expand on this). Also would you give me an indication of how big the machine was and if possible how much ice it produced each day. Went to Apalachacola three weeks ago and the museum had been closed. I was very disappointed. This would help my research. Thanks.
