'Prepwind' employs the same graphical user interface as Mistral's acclaimed 'Coldwind' program series, with access to the same world meteorological, food product and scores of other indespensable databases but with the addition of merged building construction materials and coldroom insulation panel databases. Switchable between operating to both external and internal dimensions and as with 'Coldwind' runs simultaneously in both Imperial and SI (metric) units. Switchable between English and French language. Complete with 1,920 optional, 'Instant Selection', pre-engineered and fully editable room designs.

Design and size a food preproom, automatically select the refrigeration equipment, save the file for future total recall* if future editing required and print out a comprehensive, plain language and jargon free, customer presentation quality specification to support your quotation through to a contract order. Create a Preproom project in flag_uk.png English then switch it to flag_fr_16x11.png French to forward to a colleague, specifier or customer in France.

All in under three minutes! Do please let us know if you can find another refrigeration load calculation program like it. Indeed coming even close to it. From ANYWHERE in the world! Also made available for FREE download by existing Mistral 'Corporate Licensees' (click image above to download). Supplied bundled with 'Linewind' multi-refrigerant pipe sizing and 'Metwind' interactive world meteorology programs.

* Mistral programs are unique in saving not just project results but every operation that went into creating that result. Meaning calculation files can be retrieved an hour, a month or even a decade later and be studied, edited if needed and re-saved. A major difference and benefit. Other software developers don't (can't) do that!

Cost to Mistral of researching, coding, compiling and proof testing 'Prepwind' using component parts sourced and adapted from existing Mistral software products - Circa 13,000 Euros. (34 year historical development cost of those existing Mistral products - Circa 11.5 million Euros).
