Abstract : The patent describes a horizontal bottom-freezing cell which operates on the liquid convection principle wherein loop circulation occurs because of temperature differentials between the upper and lower portion of the cell. The apparatus contains three interconnected members so that the lower member may be left in the ice strata for reinforcement purposes. Also by being interconnected the cell length may be varied as desired.
