What is the difference between the Cold Gun and the Adjustable Spot Cooler?
The Cold Gun is an engineered, pre-set vortex tube product that includes heat shielding, sound muffling, and magnetic mount to facilitate use in machining applications. The unit is pre-set for maximum refrigeration. The 5215 and 5315 models will produce 1000 Btu/hr. of cooling power with 100 PSIG input pressure. The 5230 and 5330 models will produce 2000 Btu/hr. of cooling power with 100 PSIG input pressure.
The Adjustable Spot Cooler is very similar in form and function to the Cold Gun. However, it is “adjustable” because the temperature drop that can be achieved is variable with the use of an integral valve that regulates temperature drop. The flow rate consumed by the Adjustable Spot Cooler is also variable with the use of 3 different flow rate adjustments. The cooling power of an Adjustable Spot Cooler can be as high as 2000 Btu/hr. with 100 PSIG input pressure.
