10 Best Benefits of Personal Air Coolers
Extreme temperatures affect productivity and comfort. No one can change the weather or work related temperature operations. Today Personal Air Conditioners (PACs) have solved this problem. PAC is an efficient and cost effective solution used in a wide range of commercial and industrial applications.
No matter what type of temperature you experience, the PAC creates a microclimate of cold or hot air when needed. PACs are designed with a dual action switch that can significantly reduce heat or cold depending on the temperature.
PACs are temperature controlled and configured to provide either hot or cold air for all seasons. The air is continuous. It reduces productivity shortfalls, while improving comfort. There are a number of models with different air temperature controlled capacities.
Here are the many benefits of PACs:
1. Continuous hot or cold air delivery
Attached to the vest, hood or helmet, the PAC circulates cold or warm air throughout the upper body. The PAC vest feature a collar that can be unfolded to deliver regulated airflow to the face and neck. PACs deliver continuous and adjustable cold or hot air flow. Staff operating in extreme temperature conditions are not affected at project sites as air is constantly circulated throughout the body.
2. Dual action switch
The innovative dual action switch makes it easy to shift from cold to hot air through a simple swap of the vest muffler and rotation of the tube.
3. Worn with protective outer clothing
PACs are designed with no moving parts nor do they restrict the employee’s ability to move freely. It is impermeable to perspiration, debris and other contaminates. This feature makes it easy to clean the vest or other type of clothing that combines the PAC technology. It allows an employee to wear it under protective clothing. Even when worn under heavy protective clothing, it is capable of providing consistent and continuous relief from heat or cold stress.
4. Reduces temperature related work breaks
PACs circulate air to minimize temperature related stress and fatigue, while improving comfort and efficiency. With the dual action switch, it offers both heating and cooling capabilities making it suitable for all seasons.
5. Maximizes productivity
With less breaks, employees are able to concentrate on the task at hand and maximize productivity.
6. Reduces the need for air conditioning at the workplace
PACs reduce energy consumptiont and costs of large industrial air conditioners or heating systems for warehouse, industrial facilities and workshops.
7. Improves worker safety
With PACs, high temperature work environments are comfortable and healthy for employees. PACs help to reduce heat related injuries, keep workers cool and removes the need for frequent work breaks. The direct body cooling technology can prevent serious health conditions such as heat strokes and exhaustion. PACs are designed to meet regulatory standards.
8. Easy to configure and maintain
Personal air coolers use vortex tube technology and filtered compressed air to generate cold or hot air for various applications. The temperature can be regulated by changing the pressure of the compressed air. This makes work environments more comfortable and healthy. PACs are virtually maintenance free and parts are easy to replace.
9. Suitable for a wide range of work applications and outdoor activities
The PAC is integrated with helmets, vests, hoods and other type of clothing. It can be applied to countless number of applications including construction, boiler rooms, steel mills, welding operations, refrigerated lockers, mines, smelters and hazardous waste removal activities. Additionally, PACs are used for activities such as landscaping, sports, racing, motorcycling and bicycling.
10. Abrasion resistant and flame retardant material
The PAC vests are abrasion resistant and non-susceptible to flames.
