Vortex Tubes

Vortex Tubes are ideal for industrial spot cooling and process cooling. Able to cool instantly, Vortex Tubes use compressed air separated into hot and cold air streams to produce up to 6000 BTU/hr (1757 watts) of refrigeration, as well as temperatures as low as -40°C (-40°F).

Performance is easy to adjust and the inlet air pressure and ratio of cool air to exhaust are variable. As well as this, cooling capacities range from 100 – 6000 BTU/hour (29 – 1757 watts). If Vortex Tubes are required for heating, this can be done by changing the hot exhaust air to be expelled as part of the application.

Vortex Tubes are compact and come in models ranging from 150mm to 330mm (6 to 13 inches). They have no moving parts meaning they are both inexpensive and highly reliable.
