Portable Temperature Control Business Users

Three additional common uses of portable temperature control are to cool medical equipment such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), for conditioning rockets in the aerospace industry, and for converting spaces so that they can be used for different purposes. Detailed information is in the next section.

COOLING MEDICAL EQUIPMENT

THE AEROSPACE INDUSTRY

  • Portable temperature control is used in the aerospace industry. It is used in activities such as in the conditioning of rockets as they are moved to the launchpad.
  • The aerospace portable temperature control known as the environmental control unit is used to control the temperature to plus or minus two degrees Fahrenheit and also maintain humidity levels between 10%-50%.
  • The aerospace environmental control unit is also used to keep the particles in the rocket clean and remove hydrocarbons to prevent contamination of the payload.
  • United Launch Alliance is an example of a company that used a trailer-mounted, portable temperature control system manufactured by Air Innovations to condition a rocket while it was being taken to the launchpad.

CONVERT A SPACE FOR A DIFFERENT PURPOSE

RESEARCH STRATEGY

To find additional common uses of portable temperature control, our first research strategy was to search for reports and industry databases for relevant information. This strategy was successful in providing information on other common uses. However, we did not find examples of companies that have applied them. Our second strategy was to search for companies that provide portable temperature control services with the intention of looking for case studies about their customers. This strategy was successful in providing three common uses of portable temperature control and examples of companies that use them. These were included in our findings.

  • "The ECU has dehumidification ability with “%RH” or “Dewpoint” modes of control. In “%RH” mode, the unit will be able to provide outlet air at 10%-50% RH at any included selected temperature/flow rate. The “Dewpoint” mode includes desiccant reactivation and provides outlet air at a selectable 25-42.5°F dp at any included temperature/flow rate."
