How Vortex Tubes Work

How Vortex Tubes Work

Compressed air enters the vortex tube at point (A). Inside the vortex tube the compressed air is made to spin using a “generator”. It travels in one direction along the small (hot end) tube and then back inside itself in the reverse direction creating one stream of air (B) and the second stream of air (C) in the opposite direction. The outside stream of air gets hot and exhausts at point (D). The centre column of air gets cold and exists at point (E). Temperatures and capacities can vary by adjusting the hot end plug at (D) and by using different “generators”

The vortex tube is a tool that can take normal compressed air and convert into two air streams. One stream is hot air and the other stream is cold air. The advantage of our vortex tube is that it has no moving parts , which translates into no maintenance. The cold air can be adjusted down to -50º F, and the hot side can be adjusted up to a temperature of 250º F.

There are three basic physical sizes of vortex tubes used extensively in industry the small version, medium version and large version. Vortex tubes can be selected by required performance in cooling for the "H" generator versions and where very cold temperatures are required "C" generators are used. However, even with "C" generators, as expected, the higher the flow rating the greater the cooling effect.
