Summer Time Heat Stress Relief for Animals

Evaporative Cooling Products Keep the Animal's Core Temperature StableImage of Heat Stress Relief for Pets

When the hot and humid weather finally hits, many outdoor industrial laborers take appropriate preventative measures to offset potential heat exhaustion or heat stress while on the job. They will seek evaporative cooling accessories such as cooling vests, cooling hats, cooling pads, cooling bandanas etc. and will hydrate regularly. Homeowners will also make arrangements for cooling relief as well. Many will have the central air conditioner checked, the pool ready and the awnings hung.
But what happens if your work tasks or training involves an animal? Animals like humans are highly susceptible to heat stroke and working in heat conditions can cause injury or death. But for many professionals, animals such as horses and dogs are relied on daily, and regardless of the weather.
When the high heat and humid weather hits, training and the work doesn't stop because of the extreme heat conditions - the horses need to run and the dogs to patrol. For the average homeowner, a pet is our beloved friend and missing a walk because of the heat is not an ordeal. But for a border patrol agent or policeman, their canine or horse is a highy vested work companion and crime won't wait for waterbreaks.

Patented HyperKewl™ Plus Cooling Technology

HyperKewl™ Evaporative Cooling material is a unique polymer fabric that absorbs and slowly releases water through evaporation. Look at this process as "super-charging" the body's natural cooling process, thereby protecting the wearer against heat stress. While other technologies are effective for pre and post cooling while you compete, HyperKewl™ works to cool you during the competition or strenuous activity. Simply soak HyperKewl™ products in water for 1-2 minutes, gently squeeze out excess water and enjoy the cooling effect for 5-10 hours. Simple, fast and easy to use, it can provide temperatures that are 10-15 degrees (F) cooler than ambient temperature with each soak.

CoolPax™ Evaporative Cooling Technology

Enjoy controlled or targeted cooling with Phase Change Cooling technology called CoolPax™.  CoolPax products use cooling inserts that are made of a non-toxic carbon-based liquid material that's activated by exposing them to any condition below their Phase Change Temperature. This means that CoolPax can be activated in freezers, fridges, ice water, ice coolers or any other situation where the temperature is below 58°F/14°C and will maintain this temperature for 2-3 hours. This unique feature means that with the use of ice in a cooler, users can re-activate inserts by simply placing them in a cooler full of ice.

DryKewl™ Evaporative Cooling Technology (discontinued)

Using  patented HyperKewl™ fabric in combination with specially prepared nylon that keeps water inside but allows air to flow through. This combination allows HyperKewl inserts to be incorporated inside the cooling vessel between the nylon. Pets are cooled through evaporation but remain completely dry.
Users can expect the evaporative cooling to provide temperatures that are 15-20F degrees cooler than the ambient temperature depending on airflow. DryKewl products are easily charged and re-charged. No soaking of the vest, or pouring water through a small hole. Simply remove the insert, soak and put it back in the vessel, and enjoy.
