Keep Your Electrical Enclosures Cool, Clean and Protected
Today’s small and compact, multi-function electronic controls,variable speed drives, servos and programmable logic controllers are extremely sensitive to heat and contamination. Smaller cabinet sizes make temperature control difficult and contribute to significant premature failures. Excessive heat causes components to “cook”, digital displays to misread, controls to drift, and breakers to trip below their rated loads. The result is often lost productivity from machine or line shutdowns. Fans often provide inadequate cooling and commonly pull in dirty, humid air creating another source of failure. Air conditioners require ongoing maintenance and are relatively expensive, large and difficult to install.

The Vortex cooling principle explained
A vortex tube spins compressed air to produce hot and cold air streams, generating temperatures below inlet temperature
Vortex Cooler Enclosure Coolers are powered by a Vortex tube – a unique device that creates a vortex from compressed air and separates it into hot and cold air streams. Here’s how it works. The vortex tube’s cylindrical generator causes the input compressed air to rotate reaching speeds up to 1,000,000 rpm as it is forced down the inner walls of the hot (longer) end of the vortex tube. At the end of the hot tube, a small portion of this air exits through a needle valve as hot air exhaust. The remaining air is forced back through the center of the incoming air stream at a slower speed. The heat in the slower moving air is transferred to the faster moving incoming air. This super-cooled air flows through the center of the generator and exits through the cold air exhaust port.
