"Never Fall in Love...
with Your Own Technology."
CFD was founded in August 2013 around the original concept of using linear plasma
actuator technology to solve the problem of warm air intrusion in open case refrigeration
(OCR).  Upon completing the first round of angel funding and securing additional grants
from the state of Florida, research in this area began in late 2013.

The original proof of concept was achieved in late May 2014 and in 2015 we abandoned the
use of plasma actuators to focus on replicating our early results using more conventional
technologies, but mostly in the realm of air flow manipulation. The company has produced
several operating first generation Beta models and is now ready to seek customer
installation.  As the original source of this products development, a senior VP of energy at
Walmart remarked to us that open case refrigeration is the largest opportunity for energy
savings in the retail food business.

In September of 2015, the company had a new angel raise, and continued its pursuit of
aerodynamics solutions for commercial trucks with the focus on replicating the University of
Florida results which showed a 14.7% drag reduction.  

Fortunately, the Company pursued the understanding of the underlying air flow dynamics
rather than the technology, which resulted in multiple scientific breakthroughs for which
patents have now been filed.   In March of 2016, using various 1:32 scale trucks the
Company was able to match the drag reduction results achieved at the University of Florida,
but without using the highly volatile technology.  A CFD based software will be developed
around the solution to ensure that installers will be able to accurately position the devices
for optimal results.  This IP is critical as improper installation and lack of understanding of
the dynamics of the air flow resulted in increased drag.

The final stage of the scaled testing was conducted in Osaka, Japan, where using a 1:14
scale truck, (8 times the surface area of the 1:32 scale truck and 10 times the weight) we
accomplished the best results to date at over 16.3% drag reduction at 60 mph and just as
notably, 39% drag reduction at 30 mph.  The company will has already created the molds
which can be used to mass produce these retrofit units at commercial scale. The first
prototypes will ship to our Beta and be ready for install as early as September 2016. Our
Beta customer is a company with over 5,000 trucks and 14,000 trailers with established
protocols and routes for testing.  This is a potentially lucrative market, as the estimated
global market for fuel efficiency solutions is over $50 billion and our product is filling a large
void in the market. There are other start ups in our space, but either they are using plasma,
which creates ozone, which is EPA controlled and studies link to death, SJA's , which have
are unproven in long term commercial application and are parasitic to the engine or are
mechanical, which also leads to long term reliability.  All of these companies will come in
substantially more expensive than our solutions.

The company is preparing for a new Angel round of up to $500,000 which will bring the
Company through the Beta testing, contracts and the Series A funding. The goal is to bring
these to market in the first quarter of 2017.

CFD’s solution presents no physical barrier between the
customer and products because it separates the interior of  
the case from the exterior with only a thin, laminar flow of
faster moving air generated with extremely low power, low
profile, and low cost technology. It can be installed in a
fraction of the time other solutions require, which
dramatically reduces disruption to operation. Furthermore,
unlike physical doors which suck cold air out from the entire
surface area of the door every time it is opened (we have all
experienced this at the supermarket where cold air is being
sucked out and we feel the mass of cold air from head to
toe). As the mass of cold air is sucked out, (versus “leaked”
out which is less severe) it creates a vacuum which is
instantly replaced with warmer ambient air.  In contrast, any
warm air intrusion that occurs with our solution is limited to
an area just larger than an arm (image on right 800) or
product penetrating the air flow as merchandise is stocked
or retrieved for purchase. 801 and 802 show the small area
where warm air intrusion could occur. The second image
shows the large surface area affected when the door is

*  A 2013 Study showed that if a  
refrigeration door is opened 60
times in an hour, all energy
saving benefits were negated.

*  A study by Supervalu/ Albertsons
showed Sales losses between 2
- 8% when doors were installed.
When a physical barrier is placed
sales loss negated energy gains.

*  In the 2014 Department of Energy
refrigeration standards,
refrigerated doors were not
mandated. The typical standard
for payback was between 3 - 7
years. Despite industry claims,
doors did not meet those criteria.
