Vortec publishes white paper online


March 17, 2017

Cincinnati-based Vortec has published a five-page white paper at www.vortec.com/technical-bulletins that discusses the basic operation of vortex tube technology and guides the reader on proper application in many heating and cooling applications.

The paper details how vortex tubes, with no moving parts, create hot and cold airstreams from a compressed air source. It explains proper model selection and adjustment and discusses how the quality of the compressed air supply and conditions downstream of the vortex tube can affect the success of the installation.
