(L to R) Panasonic’s Green Ambience Changer Flex Mist Nozzle and Sprayer
Panasonic today launched the Green AC (Ambience Changer) Flex, an environmentally-friendly mist system designed for outdoor environments, in Asia Pacific. Featuring an ultra-fine mist system that generates cold air to lower outdoor temperatures by up to 4 degrees Celsius, the Green AC Flex not only consumes 70 percent less energy compared to conventional two-fluid systems, it can also be easily installed within existing outdoor structures due to its compact and flexible structure, making it ideal for use at outdoor attractions, malls, gardens, restaurants, events and public transportation waiting areas.
By using a 2-fluid nozzle1 to generate an ultra-fine mist (Silky Fine Mist) from water and air, each mist particle - about the size of 6㎛ - works to lower temperatures rapidly through evaporative cooling, removing heat directly away from the skin. The small size of each mist particle also enables the Green AC Flex to emit sufficient particles to cool a large outdoor area of about 1.5 m in distance and provide a comfortable cooling sensation with almost no feeling of wetness even with close contact (about 0.6m).
“The Green AC Flex is a revolutionary environmentally-friendly mist system that cools outdoor environments without worsening the greenhouse effect. By generating an ultra-fine mist that can be carried over a longer distance to cool larger outdoor areas, the system not only helps to lower outdoor temperatures efficiently, it also helps to save energy. With sustainability being a key focus for many countries and organizations in the Asia Pacific region, we believe that the Green AC Flex will be able to meet their needs now and into the future,” said Toshiyuki Yamaguchi, Director, Business Development Solutions, Panasonic Appliances Marketing Asia Pacific.
Other possible use cases for the Green AC Flex include:
- Stage productions for the diffusion of light from projectors to create beams of light and immersive experiences
- Infusing aroma in enclosed spaces
- Adding humidity to dry environments
- Reducing static in production facilities
- Eliminating bacteria in sensitive environments
Each Green AC Flex set consists of a mist nozzle for emitting the mist, and a sprayer with a built-in control panel and drive unit, which can be used with flexible resin tubing2 for integrated design with pliers, pergolas and public monuments. The Green AC Flex also features a timer function3 that makes it easy to use even in places where daily operation is difficult to manually operate. Besides allowing for direct connection to drinking tap water, it also supports operation using an external water tank for places where it is difficult to lay water supply pipes, such as outdoor event venues.

1A nozzle that mixes and sprays air and water. The compressed high-speed airflow crushes water into small pieces, which makes it possible to atomize mist compared to a one-fluid nozzle that sprays only with water.
2The maximum tubing distance from the sprayer to the final nozzle is 40 m. The distance between each nozzle can be adjusted from a minimum of 0.5 m to a maximum of 2 m.
3Operation start time and stop time can be set for each day of the week.
4Standard New Effective Temperature. SET* is a temperature metric that factors in air temperature, relative humidity, mean radiant temperature, and air velocity, while also considering the anticipated activity rate and clothing levels. It is equivalent to apparent temperature.

Appendix: Main Features of Panasonic’s Green AC (Ambience Changer) Flex
1. Ultra-fine mist "Silky Fine Mist"
By using Panasonic's original 2-fluid nozzle1, it produces ultra-fine "Silky Fine Mist" particles with an average particle size of 6㎛ and delivers cooling sensation with almost no wet feeling even when sprayed on the body.

2. It makes you feel cooler by up to 4 degrees Celsius4
It can make a person standing about 60cm from the mist nozzle feel cooler by up to 4 degrees Celsius. By spraying from an appropriate position for adults, children, standing up or sitting in a wheelchair, it creates a comfortable space in various scenes.
3. Flexible installation with resin tubing
Since the sprayer and each mist nozzle is connected by resin tubing, the tube can be bent according to the site, and the height of the nozzle installation and the distance between nozzles can be freely adjusted2. This makes it easy to retrofit existing structures. In addition, the control panel and drive unit are built into the sprayer and can be installed outdoors.
4. Supports a wide range of applications from temporary to permanent operations
In addition to direct connection to drinking tap water, it also supports operation with an external water tank. It features a timer function3 and supports the input of external control devices connected with temperature and humidity sensors. It can be used for a wide range of applications, including temporary operations such as events and permanent, long-term operations.
