Vortex TubesSub-Zero Spot Cooling using Compressed AirVortex tubes...our founding technology. More than 40 years ago, we pioneered the application of the vortex tube principle to solve industrial cooling problems.Maintenance free, no moving parts Cycle repeatability within 1 Drops inlet temperature by up to 100F Cools without electricity or refrigerants Exceptionally reliable, compact and lightweight

Over the years, thousands of companies of all sizes have used ITW Vortec vortex tubes on their equipment to spot cool a part or process, thermal test components, speed set solders or hot melt adhesives, and so much more. A vortex tube from ITW Vortec can produce up to 6000 BTUH of refrigeration or deliver temperatures down to -40F.Vortex Tubes are an effective, low cost solution to a wide variety of industrial spot and process cooling needs. With no moving parts, a vortex tube spins compressed air to separate the air into cold and hot air streams. While French physicist Georges Ranque is credited with inventing the vortex tube in 1930, ITW Vortec was the first company to develop and apply this phenomenon into practical and effective cooling solutions for industrial use. Vortex Tubes have a very wide range of application for spot cooling on machines, assembly lines and processes.

All Vortex Tubes are Easily Adjusted to Regulate Airflow Volume and TemperatureVortex Tube performance can be further modified by changing an internal bushing or generator. These modifications can change the total flow capacity (CFM) and cold fraction to achieve maximum refrigeration or lowest possible cold temperature. Generator kits, hot end / cold end mufflers, as well as stainless steel Vortex Tube models are available. For help with your spot cooling application, please contact one of our Application Engineers. They will be happy to assist you with proper Vortex Tube selection.

Fluid (air) that rotates around an axis (like a tornado) is called a vortex. A Vortex Tube creates cold air and hot air by forcing compressed air through a generation chamber, which spins the air at a high rate of speed (1,000,000 RPM) into a vortex. The high-speed air heats up as it spins along the inner walls of the Tube toward the control valve. A percentage of the hot, high speed air is permitted to exit at the valve. The remainder of the (now slower) air stream is forced to counterflow up through the center of the high-speed air stream in a second vortex. The slower moving air gives up energy in the form of heat and becomes cooled as it spins up the tube. The chilled air passes through the center of the generation chamber finally exiting through the opposite end as extremely cold air. Vortex tubes generate temperatures down to 100F below inlet air temperature. The control valve located in the hot exhaust end can be used to adjust the temperature drop and rise for all Vortex Tubes.

Vortex TubesWith our models ranging from approximately 6 to 13 long, Vortex Tubes are a very compact source of refrigeration and spot cooling capability. They are designed to utilize a filtered compressed air supply of 80 - 110 PSIG. Pressures lower than 80 PSIG will still provide some cooling, but temperature drops and flows are reduced due to the lower inlet pressures. To prepare the air source, an appropriate filter/separator must be used, placed as near to the Vortex Tube as possible. ITW Vortecs Auto-Drain filters-separators incorporate a 5 micron filter that effectively removes dirt, rust and excessive moisture from the compressed air supply.

Reliable, Maintenance-Free CoolingUsing an adequately filtered and dried compressed air source, Vortex Tubes are essentially a no-maintenance cooling solution. With no moving parts to break or wear out, they will provide years of trouble-free operation. Prolonged use with dirty or oily air can cause wear or dirt collection within the tube. Under these conditions, occasional disassembly, inspection and cleaning are the only maintenance activities required. Since the tubes performance is affected by the absolute pressure ratio applied, care should be taken not to restrict the cold outlet. A small amount of back pressure on the cold outlet to allow air to move through piping or ducting is acceptable. B
