Imagine a factory environment – maybe a fertilizer plant or a chemical production facility with electrical and electronic cabinets that need to be kept clean. Not only does the maintenance cost of maintaining the air conditioning systems become quite high, but they become very critical to protect the sensitive controls inside. The air conditioners themselves also are very costly as they need to be made in stainless steel for certain environments. For example, fertilizer production requires 316 stainless.
This is the perfect environment where vortex tube operated air conditioners excel. They use only compressed air to operate but the increased energy costs are more than offset by the near zero-maintenance of these devices in difficult surroundings. They have zero condensate, are not subject to vibration damage, have no chemicals to operate, no filters to change and slightly pressurize a control cabinet to keep outside air out protecting the controls inside. They can be supplied in 304 stainless or 316 stainless and even 316L stainless for pharmaceutical applications.
