Industrial Solutions for Vortex Tubes
Metal Fabricating - Tapping
Tapping brass clips is completed without messy liquid coolants using air from a Vortex Tube to cool the tap. The brass does not have a chance to gum up, the cut is cleaner, and secondary operations are eliminated.
Plastic - Slitting
Cutting wheels on this slitter can work at top speed and stay sharper longer - when cold air from Vortex Tubes eliminates the friction heat build-up. The trim edge is also cleaner.
Cooling this spot-welding operation with a Vortex Tube virtually eliminates secondary smoothing operations, and greatly improves the appearance of the product.
Metalworking - Single Point Threading
Heat build-up in this single point threading operation can shorten tool life and produce a rough thread. Clean, dry, sub-zero cooling allows increased speed, while eliminating tool microcracking and premature failure.
Uses for Vortex Tubes
- Cool manufacturing processes: machining plastics or metals, wood working, soldering, adhesive application, heat sealing, sewing needles, mold tooling and many others.
- In the laboratory: cool and dehumidify gas samples, cool environmental chambers.
- "Temperature cycle" electronic components, instruments, switches and thermostats.
- Air condition electronic control enclosures: CNC cabinets, industrial PCs, PLCs and motor controls.
- Generate hot air to +230°F (+110°C), without a spark or explosion hazard to soften plastic, melt glues and seal packaging.
- Cool workers wearing protective gear.
