CO -- The first public demonstration of a revolutionary
new self-chilling beverage can is taking place this week
at Cannex 2001, the packaging industry forum for can manufacturers
and suppliers. Tempra Technology, a global leader in advanced
thermal science development, will demonstrate working
prototypes of its all new "I.C. Can™" to industry leaders
-- and the media -- here this week. Cannex 2001 runs through
April 27 at Denver's Colorado Convention Center.
demonstration schedules, and more information, visit
the Tempra display at Cannex booth #839; the exhibit
space for CarnaudMetalbox Engineering, a division of
Crown Cork & Seal -- the world's leading packaging company
-- with whom Tempra is partnered in development and
commercialization of the can. I.C. Can™ is also nominated
in the exposition's Can-of-the-Year competition for
excellence and innovation in design.
Instant Cool Can (I.C. Can™) features an innovative
self-chilling process proven to lower the temperature
of its contents by over 30 degrees Fahrenheit in just
three minutes. The advanced design uses latest breakthroughs
in thermal, insulating and vacuum heat pump technology.
I.C. Can™ is about the size of a familiar 500ml beverage
can, including the beverage container itself and the
integral self-chilling device. Tempra's patented process
combines simple evaporation with innovative vacuum
power, which draws heat from the beverage into an
insulated heat sink chamber. It's totally self-contained
with no off-gassing. It's also totally safe, non-toxic
and environmentally friendly. The I.C. Can™ uses no
carbon dioxide, CFC, HFC or compressed gases.
