This system is designed to reduce the human body temperature so that a person wearing additional personal protective equipment may more safely withstand adverse heat conditions. This system may also be used simply to increase the comfort of a person in hot environments.
Evacuate the sweat
Overall, this personal cooling system influences the rate of evaporation of water vapour from the skin of the body of its user, thereby accelerating the phase change of sweat liquid to vapour. The suction created in the space between the panels and the user also draws more humidity and heat away from the body. This results in the cooling of the user being more efficient.
The personal cooling system can be used by many different persons and in many different situations. Examples of people that can benefit from using this system include firemen, law enforcement personnel, military personnel, construction workers, petroleum industry workers, smelting plant workers or boiler operators.
