Introducing Dry Cooling Technology – transforming the way workers stay cool
11 June 2018
At Centurion we understand the importance of wearer comfort in driving safety standards. That’s why we’re proud to launch our unique Dry Cooling Technology – designed to transform the way workers stay cool in the most challenging conditions.
The patent-pending Dry Cooling Technology is the result of an innovative collaboration with Inuteq – world leader in personal cooling technologies and products. Our partnership followed extensive user consultation that demonstrated the issues with existing industrial cooling systems – all of which use wet technology which can be uncomfortable on the wearer’s skin and is compromised in humid conditions.
Our new technology keeps the wearer 100% dry while offering superior cooling benefits of 15°C below ambient temperature. It lasts up to four times longer than current wet cooling alternatives, is anti-bacterial and machine washable.
Dry Cooling Technology uses an innovative two-part structure – storing water between a semi-permeable outer membrane and an impermeable inner layer. It cools the wearer by utilising energy from the water as it evaporates. This means that – in contrast to wet cooling systems whose lifecycles are shortened by humid conditions – our new system thrives in this environment and can last for over one to three days after a single activation.
And Dry Cooling’s advantages go beyond performance. Due to its longer-lasting cooling benefits and ability to be activated 750 times, our technology has significant cost benefits when measured over a five-year period.
Our system is compatible with all Centurion helmets and is our latest step in making safe safer – providing the wearer comfort that aids compliance and reduces the risks of heat in the workplace.
