Confined space entry in hot vessels

I am searching for a trolley mounted portable air conditioner with hose for cool air (up to 60 ft long). This is required for quick entries into vessels which take several days when cooled with conventional air blowing. Is there some product available in the market?

Top item is a sandblaster's hood, 2nd is a 'bubble hood'; both blow compressed air [cooled by expansion] onto wearer's head. If you keep the entrant's head cool, they are fine, even in very hot areas. Add a cooling vest, and TWO means of extracting the entrant -- too hot to inspect w/o cooling means too hot to send in a rescue team into.
