Interactive Meteorological Database additions
The United Kingdom is a renowned world leader in food 'Cold Chain' technology. Refrigerating food from 'Field to Plate'. What is perhaps less well known is just how much of this advanced refrigeration technology is exported to other countries. From Afghanistan to Zambia along with all points inbetween.
Professional Refrigeration Engineers recognize that all new refrigeration projects start with the heat load calculation. Hence the reason Mistral's 'COLDWIND' load calculation program began its life over a third of a century ago. What is also often not appreciated is that 'COLDWIND' is under constant, daily development. Not just to maintain it so as to keep abreast of unrelenting advances in computing technology but also to reflect changing needs and new challenges in the commercial refrigeration industry the program serves.
One of these challenges is constantly updating and adding to 'COLDWIND's vast interactive database of actuarial, meteorological data. 'COLDWIND' is capable of calculating not just 'worst case' results for refrigeration projects, but also energy profiles at 15 minute intervals for every day of the year, in tens of thousands of world locations. With no more than a couple of mouse clicks on thousands of world maps, or alternatively by simple to follow, alphabetically arranged, country by country menu selections.
Research in meteorological data is a surprisingly complicated and generally quite expensive process. Official sources that have invested huge amounts of money gathering and formulating reliable, certified meteorological data don't often hand it out freely to just anyone that comes along and asks for it! And not unreasonably they ask to be paid for it.
Good to know then that over the preceding nine months Mistral has found, purchased and added meteorological profiling data for another 200 or more primary world locations. Thereby further helping refrigeration companies involved with designing refrigeration installations in locations all around the world.
'COLDWIND's meteorological interactive database is shared by both 'AIRWIND' and 'CELLWIND' and also Mistral's Shareware program, 'METWIND'.
Cost to Mistral researching & compiling Meteorological database edits: 1,300 Euros.
