What is the NanoCool cooling technology?

With this on-demand evaporative cooling technology, a small amount of water at low pressure evaporates over days of operation, giving seven times the cooling power of melting ice. NanoCool’s active cooling process adjusts to variations in ambient temperature in a way that conventional cooling systems cannot.

How are the NanoCool systems activated?

Open the system, remove the cooling engine and place silver foil side down on a clean, hard, flat surface. With your thumb, push straight down on the button. Within seconds the NanoCool logo turns blue, indicating the cooling has begun. Load product in the chamber, replace cooling engine snugly, close the container and tape it shut.

How should the NanoCool system be packed?

  • If adding filler such as paper, bubble wrap or peanuts, be sure to leave some space so that cool air can circulate from the cooling lid.
  • If adding a temperature monitor, keep it as near to your product as possible. Do not allow it to touch the cooling engine and avoid placing it in the corners. Remember that—depending on the packout—product and monitor can move during shipment.
  • As with all cooling elements, there can be some modest condensation on the cooling engine. If product protection against condensation is desired, two common approaches are to place your product into a plastic bag or place absorbent material on top of your product.

Is the NanoCool system reusable?

The cooling engine can be used only once.

The insulation box of Universal Systems can be reused two times within its two year expiry date. If the insulation box of the Universal System has been exposed to freezing temperatures, it must sit at 17°C or above for 72 hours before reuse.

The insulation box of Cooling Systems can be reused four times within its two year expiry date. Replacement cooling lids can be ordered separately.
