It all started with a realization—drinks today are not sold at optimal temperatures.
How many times have you gone into a convenience store to buy a cold beverage, only to pop it open and discover it's lukewarm? Meh. Let's face it, 45° F should not be the industry standard.
The problem is with air-cooled refrigerators.
- Not only do they use old cooling technology from the 1920’s which can take over an hour to cool, they are often set to 40° F to save energy.
- Also, consider that every time the door is opened, the cool air is replaced by warm air, slowing down the cooling process even more and increasing the power requirement to cool beverages.
- Then there is the LIFO issue—Last In, First Out. It means when the cooler is restocked, the new, warm drinks are added to the front, while the cooler ones are stuck in the back.
So, we came up with a better way to cool beverages. Introducing RotoQuench Technology.
Think of swirling a cup of iced tea. As you do it, you’re instantly removing heat from the beverage due to the thermal properties of ice. Our RotoQuench Technology™ does the same thing at a bulk scale and does it to the liquid inside the can or bottle.
How? We take ice and water, along with your favorite canned or bottled beverages, and spin them really fast (500 RPMs to be exact). This process maximizes the surface area of the liquid touching the outside of the can which removes the heat from inside the can or bottle in just seconds.
Time comparison data for cooling canned beverages to ice cold by traditional means:
|Ice in cooler||30 minutes|
|In freezer||25 minutes (but don’t forget to take it out)|
|In ice + water||15 minutes|
|In ice + water + salt||5 minutes (but leaves salty residue)|
|BlueQuench RotoQuench Technology||About 60 seconds (depending on container type)|
Note: Plastic and glass bottles have inherent insulating properties and take a little longer to chill.
We know we have something special here.
