Vortex Tubes and Spot Cooling Products
Vortex TubesWhat Is a Vortex Tube?
|A low cost, reliable, maintenance-free solution to a variety of industrial spot cooling problems. Using an ordinary supply of compressed air as a power source, vortex tubes create two streams of air, one hot and one cold, with no moving parts. Vortex tubes can produce:
- Temperatures from -50° to +260°F
(-46° to +127°C)
- Flow rates from
2 to 150 SCFM
(28 to 4,248 SLPM)
- Refrigeration up to 10,200 Btu/hr.
Special high temperature vortex tubes keep a boroscope lens cool while inserted into a 1200°F boiler porthole (inset photo).
|Temperatures, flows and refrigeration are adjustable over a wide range using the control valve on the hot end exhaust.|
