Product number: F300F

A compressed air vortex tube has two outlet ports that can be adjusted to vary the proportion of flow that leaves from the hot and cold exit points.

Using a common compressed air source at ambient temperature, the cold stream can reach temperatures below -30°C and the hot stream temperatures above 50°C.

The effect of air supply pressure on the performance can be investigated together with the overall refrigerating effect. The pressures, temperatures and air flow rate are recorded by a combination of instrumentation on the Compressible Flow Range F300 base unit and the optional module.
