An industry for the processing of paper has replaced a system of traditional cooling with a Vortex tube 308BSP to cool a cutting blade that rotates at about 5000 revolutions per minute. With this solution applied to the cutter housing, the customer has eliminated the problems of overheating. In addition the blade is cleaned thanks to the flow of cold air and the costs have been reduced by 70%.
One of the largest producers of air conditioning compressors cools the exterior shell of its units after a baked on painting process with model 308-35-H Vortex Tubes mounted on a cooling enclosure.
The manufacturer of form, fill and seal packaging equipment uses model 106-8-H Vortex Tube to keep sealing bar clamp shield temperatures below 150 °F. Excessive clamp shield heat would inadvertenly melt film adjacent to the seal and cause marred wrap or a defective package.
Plastic injection and blow molders increase their production rates by using Vortex Tubes to speed the cooling of molded areas, especially those to be machined.
A worldwide manufacturer of finishing equipment for the printing industry incorporates Vortex Tubes as a cooling device for slitter blades.
