Meet The First Ever Self-Chilling Can
LOS ANGELES, CFLIFORNIA - May 28, 2018
More than two decades of research have been necessary, but at last the road is laid out so that millions of people from all over the world can obtain an ice cold drink without leaving the sofa and getting up to the refrigerator, with the expenditure of energy that this entails. And thanks to the Heat Exchange Unit, the beverage can that cools alone is a reality: Chill-can, although it is still in the testing stage.
It is a matter of waiting patiently for the invention to spread throughout the world, for now it is only available in 15 stores of the 7-Eleven chain in the Los Angeles area, in the United States. The Fizzics Sparkling Cold Brew Coffee cans are now sold experimentally, which is nothing more than a gasified coffee beverage available in three flavors: regular, French and a blend of vanilla and caramel. Each unit, 250 milliliters, will cost four dollars, more than twice the value of a soft drink in that country.
The Chill-Can, named after its creator, Mitchell Joseph, is that they house within them the Heat Exchange Unit, so it is able to lower the temperature of the drink down to 30 degrees in only 90 seconds. No matter the room temperature or that has remained for hours under the sun; just turn the can, turn its base and wait. The container releases a small amount of CO2 and thus begins the cooling process automatically.
"Consumers in areas with limited refrigeration, participants in activities such as camping, fishing or sailing, and small merchants will understand the impact that self-cooling represents today for society," said The Joseph Company.
Also, the company, which specializes in technology and food, said it is "a revolutionary technology that automatically cools the beverage of your choice in (just) a minute, without using electricity, energy or ice." The project has received the approval of NASA.
How do they work:
- Whoever acquires a single has to turn a piece that is at the base of the can
- Then carbon dioxide is released from an internal reservoir and the drink is cooled
- While the process lasts, it is recommended not to touch the can and wait for its completion. It can last between 75 seconds and 90 seconds.
