Vortex Tube Experimental Kit
The Vortex Tube Experimental Kit Consists of the following:
- Small Vortex Tube
- Cold End Muffler
- Filter with Auto Drain
- All Generators
All vortex tubes have a “generator” sized for a particular flow. There are two kinds of generators- one for a cooling effect and then a second that limits the flow out of the cold end to achieve shallow temperatures. Depending on the temperature and pressure of the incoming compressed air, it is possible to attain cold end temperatures as low as minus 40 and even minus 50 degrees F.
Our Stainless Steel vortex tube comes assembled with a brass generator as a standard item rather than cheap plastic for a longer lifespan and applications in high-temperature environments. With virtually no moving parts, the vortex tube takes compressed air and converts it to cold air as low as minus 50° F (minus 46° C) at one end and hot air at the other up to 260° F (127° C).
Small Vortex Tube
The small vortex tube size range (2- 8 SCFM) comes in two physical versions – with an adjustable hot end plug that is adjusted using a screwdriver and a “hand-adjustable knob” and a hot end muffler incorporated into the unit.
Medium Vortex Tube
The medium vortex tube size range (10- 40 SCFM) also comes in two physical versions – with the same adjustable hot end plug that is adjusted using a screwdriver and the same “hand-adjustable knob” and a hot end muffler incorporated into the unit.
For both the small and medium vortex tubes, you can easily convert the version that needs a screwdriver to the hand-adjustable version, whichever is best suited to the application.
Large Vortex Tube
The extensive vortex tube size range (50 -150 SCFM) comes in one physical version only with the adjustable hot end plug that is adjusted using a screwdriver.
