Original Press Release:



New Port-a-Cool 48 inch fan



CENTER,TX - General Shelters of Texas, S.B., Ltd. introduces their all new 48" diameter fan blade model for the hot summer months.

The 48-inch fan-blade model joins the Port-A-Cool® unit lineup offering portable evaporative cooling for even larger areas. This new model will cool approximately 3,500 sq. ft., making it a perfect choice for warehouses, assembly lines and larger areas that would be impractical to cool with traditional air conditioning.

The system works simply by pulling hot, ambient air through water-soaked evaporative cooling media located in the back of the unit. The evaporation process takes place within the cooling media, creating cool air that is dispersed by a fan located in the front of the unit. Testing has shown that the Port-A-Cool® evaporative cooling unit consistently lowers the air temperature 18-26°F.

The one-piece rotomolded housing for the Port-A-Cool® unit incorporates the caddy, making the unit sturdy and immune to rust. Each unit is shipped completely assembled and ready to operate right out of the box. A molded-in switch box and recessed valve pockets assure better protection for valve handles and internal wiring. The wiring system incorporates a quick connect electrical connector that provides for easy replacement of any electrical component without rewiring. Overall, Port-A-Cool® units are built with the end-user in mind and the product is backed by a guaranteed limited warranty. Port-A-Cool® units are ETL listed and approved by Underwriters' Laboratory.

A Port-A-Cool® unit can make outside activities become more comfortable and enjoyable in spite of summer heat or warmer than comfortable working conditions. Other practical applications for Port-A-Cool® units include spot cooling in greenhouses, warehouses, gyms, garages, kennels, barns and workshops. The four fan sizes increase the variety of uses for the Port-A-Cool® unit and the list of uses for this versatile unit are virtually endless. Since Port-A-Cool® units require only 110 volts and tap water to operate, a unit can be placed almost anywhere and moved easily on casters. Port-A-Cool® cooling units are offered with a variety of options. Although the large sump tank in the bottom of the unit holds 23 gallons of water in the 48-inch unit, a portable 50-gallon water tank, Port-A-Filler, is available for use with all size units for applications where a nearby water source is not available. Also, the four pneumatic casters mounted to the bottom of the 48" unit allow ease of movement on varying terrain.
