Porticool Vest Unveiled at ASSE 2011

MORRISVILLE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Porticool II was unveiled this week at the American Society of Safety Engineers 2011 conference held at the McCormick Center in Chicago, Illinois. At under 800 grams (1.8 lbs) the Porticool II is the “World’s lightest untethered active cooling garment” on the market; making it ideally suited for demanding applications where phase change, water cooled or portable heat pump solutions are not a viable option. Examples include HAZMAT, fire fighters, industrial (nuclear, welding, etc.) and military applications.

“allowing for a much lighter and more efficient system then others currently on the market”

One advantage to the Porticool II system is that it is modular; providing complete flexibility to the customer allowing optimization between cooling time, cooling rate, weight and system cost to meet their specific need. The secret to the Porticool II is its patented two phase liquid CO2 approach; “allowing for a much lighter and more efficient system then others currently on the market,” according to Porticos president Greg Patterson. Independent testing conducted at the University of Alabama and published in the Journal of Environmental and Occupational Health confirmed the superior performance of the Porticool II; extending the average work duration by 32% as compared to standard heat stress prevention methods.

Tony Blackburn, VP of Sales and Marketing at Cool Shirt claims that, “after evaluating the prototypes along with some of our key customers we immediately realized that this technology could be a game changer in the industry and provide a great compliment to our existing systems.” As a result, Cool Shirt entered into a licensing agreement with Porticool for the technology and trademarks.
