Mistral Associates - News November 2020


In light of Pfizer's landmark COVID-19 vaccine announcement it appears there will be an urgent need for ultra low temperature refrigeration facilities across the entire world. Pfizer's new vaccine cannot be exposed for too long or for many times to temperatures above -70°C. The logistics of achieving these facilities in critically short time will be huge.

Under normal circumstances the minimum design temperature for Mistral's leading 'Coldwind Pro' refrigeration load calculation and integrated RAC equipment selection software is -40°C. However this is set purely as a part of the software's enormous and completely unique 'Dynamic Error Trapping' system. This is designed to protect users against inadvertent input mistakes which could lead to not just scientific results anomalies but also take results outside of established, accepted industry design standards and even regional local legislation. A system, again which is unique, and also one which was incredibly expensive to research, design and integrate into the Expert System Coding.

As all Mistral programs resolve all data, both keyboard input and through internal algorithm to scientific first principles this does mean that theoretically at least 'Coldwind Pro' could accurately compute to design temperatures down to Absolute Zero (0 Kelvin).

Design temperatures of -70°C therefore present no technical problems for 'Coldwind Pro'. Mistral is therefore offering any party with a directly related and legitimate need for a program that can design storage facilities down to -70°C to request access entirely free of charge.

Finally, this is similar to an offer made by Mistral back in March and which was related to the then emerging crisis. For those socially inadequate and harbouring mental issues leading to attacks upon Mistral as being 'opportunistic' then either put your effort into offering something better by assembling a similar team of leading, highly qualified engineers and programmers to cram a thirty six year, multi-million Euro software investment into just a few short days, or, perhaps even better still, seek urgent professional psychiatric help!
