How We Do It
bCOOL delivers cool water regardless of the starting water temperature in a bottle. As water is sprayed from the bCOOL nozzle, there is a rapid change in pressure which results in a significant drop in temperature – this principle is called Expansion Cooling. bCOOL eliminates the need to cool down water with refrigerants or ice. After the cool water is sprayed as a result of expansion cooling, the water is evaporated by the stream of air from the bCOOL cooling device. This is called Evaporative Cooling. bCOOL increases air flow over wet skin causing the rate of evaporation to increase. An increase in evaporation of water leads to faster cooling time.
Some of the industries where workers are most impacted by extreme heat include:
- Agriculture: Farm workers are often exposed to extreme heat and are at high risk of heat exhaustion or heat stroke.
- Construction: Construction workers are often required to work outside in the heat, which can lead to heat-related illnesses and decreased productivity.
- Landscaping and gardening: Workers in these industries spend long hours outdoors, often performing physically demanding tasks, making them more susceptible to heat-related illnesses.
- Transportation: Drivers of delivery trucks, buses, and trains can experience heat-related illnesses due to the high temperatures inside the vehicles.
- Emergency services: First responders, such as firefighters and paramedics, are required to work in extreme heat conditions, making them vulnerable to heat exhaustion and other heat-related illnesses.
- Sports: Athletes are at risk of heat-related illness during high-intensity or endurance activities in extreme heat. Athletes involved in sports that require prolonged physical activity are particularly vulnerable.
By using bCOOL, individuals can cool down quickly and safely, allowing them to perform at their best, and reducing the risk of heat exhaustion or heat stroke.
