Two minute tour of just a small, quick part of Mistral's legendary Coldwind Pro

In just 2 minutes. Could you design a coldroom, select the refrigeration equipment, save a file of the complete set of recoverable* calculation design parameters and print a presentation quality report to certainly help towards gaining an order - in just 2 minutes?

This short excerpt shows just one tiny part of the massive number of features and facilities offered by Coldwind Pro. The logical and easy to follow route through the program's Quick Selections and with around 4.7 million 'pre-engineered' cold room and freezer designs the most usual route for engineers in perhaps 90% of room design studies. So simple that most users obtain always 100% reliable results in under 60 seconds - and with fewer than a dozen button clicks!

Despite this simplicity in operation Coldwind Pro can deal with virtually any conceivable cold room and freezer design. Including multiple suites of mixed temperature spaces, zoning, agricultural produce stores, blast freezers and blast chillers, tempering rooms, preprooms, pitched roofs, spray-on foam applications, angled walls, variable wall, ceiling and floor temperature exposure; even refrigerated trucks and vans, Eurotainer (aircraft refrigerated containers) and shipping containers (lighters).

Fully 'dynamically error trapped' program, running simultaneously in both Imperial and SI (metric) units. Instantly switcheable between English and French operation. File saving and recovery routines saving not just the results but also every key press involved in the original computation. Thus affording full editing of earlier design studies - an hour, a day even a decade or more later!

Quite simply. No other expert system software designed specifically for the world's commercial Refrigeration & Air Conditioning industry comes even close to Mistral's Coldwind Pro.

* Lesser developers might save the calculation results. However Mistral saves the complete calculation file. A major difference. This makes it possible to reload the calculation file hours, days even decades later. Then edit it, duplicate it, re-save it, to even forward it to colleagues in the next office, the next town or another country for them to add to it or change it! If only the calculation results are saved then it means having to make a separate note of everything that has been entered so as to laboriously re-enter every input again should you wish to make any changes! This adds a huge amount of complexity for the software developers but adds an enormous benefit to the usefulness of the program. So much so that at Mistral we consider programs offering anything less than TOTAL FILE RECALL are not even worth having!

The days of enthusiastic but amateur programmers have long, long since gone. Don't trust your business to anything less than software developed by qualified professionals.

Mistral's commitment:
Bringing the benefits of computerisation to our industry - without the historically associated problems.
