Personal air conditioner
The Dual Action PAC is a lightweight vest designed to deliver cool or warm air to a user's torso neck, allowing users to work in tough conditions and hazardous conditions regardless of the season.
The Dual Action PAC is coupled with a lightweight vest, which delivers either cool or warm air to the wearer’s torso and neck. By wearing the vest and PAC, industrial employees working in extreme temperatures can avoid the negative impact of low temperatures in winter as well as heat stress and fatigue in the summer. Workers can adjust the Dual Action PAC to provide either heating or cooling. Thanks to vortex tube technology, the Dual Action PAC provides air temperatures ranging from 30 deg F to 120 deg F. The diffuse air vests are available in three sizes to accommodate a range of body types. The durable, flame retardant vest permits full range of motion with no airflow restrictions. The material does not absorb sweat or other contaminants. The vest can be worn under other protective clothing and features a collar that can be unfolded to deliver airflow to the neck and face.
