Abstract : This invention is a unique environmental control unit of the vapor-compression system type which incorporates a dual operation heat exchanger of the circulated air variety. The heat exchanger embodies spaced plate containers of eutectic material with evaporator coils effectively embedded therein such that air circulation and the normal evaporation process is not unduly impeded during regular operation and holdover cooling is provided when electric power for the compressor fails. In accordance with the invention, a separately powered air circulation means is provided.
