What's ZIPPKOOL > ZIPPKOOL Effective Range
| EFFECTIVE RANGE
The maximum air conditioning capacity produced by the small fan attachment to the ZIPPKOOL® wears, is displayed in kcal (kilocalorie) units. The kilocalorie unit display for the air conditioning capacity corresponds to the hourly thermogenic quantity produced (calorie consumption) by a single person during labor. For example, a general adult is said to generate 260 kcal walking and 190-240 kcal for carpentry, so wearing the 500 kcal series ZIPPKOOL® wear will supply enough air conditioning for such tasks. However, since the attached fan utilizes ambient air to create the air circulation, the maximum air conditioning capacity per hour can vary depending on the ambient temperature and humidity. Our displayed maximum air conditioning capacity (500 kcal/hr) is calculated upon ambient conditions meeting 33°C (91.4°F) / 50% humidity.
The following graph shows zones separated by temperature/humidity conditions that correspond to the effectiveness of the ZIPPKOOL® wear. Please refer to this graph upon considering the purchase or use of ZIPPKOOL® wear in various temperature/humidity conditions as well as type of labor.
