AVOID downtime with the most affordable, reliable, and easiest to install thermal protection product available for electrical enclosures at Knight Pneumatics .
Just as quiet as an air conditioner (about 62dBA), the ITW Vortex A/C noise level is 73% less than other conventional, vortex type cabinet coolers.
When the thermostatically-controlled Vortex A/C is operating, the decibel level is about the same as normal human conversation according to Knight Pneumatics.
The Vortex cooler features an integral mechanical thermostat to conserve energy and maintain enclosure temperatures within a range of 80°F to 90°F (26.6°C - 32°C).
Requiring only a compressed air supply to operate, the UL listed Vortex A/C quickly installs in a 1.5" knockout hole to keep electrical control panels cool, clean and protected.
ITW Vortec nozzles and jets
Using vortex tube technology, cold air is generated by the Vortex A/C from the compressed air supply and is distributed throughout the enclosure.
Since ambient air never enters the cabinet, it is perfect for harsh, dirty environments.
In fact, the Vortex A/C features an optional "purge-air" port that, when opened, will provide a constant positive pressure inside the enclosure to purge the cabinet of any contaminated surrounding air.
Withstanding extreme temperature conditions, the Vortex A/C will provide reliable cooling operation in environments up to 175°F (79°C).
ITW Vortec enclosure cooling, cabinet coolers
Today's small and compact, multi-function electronic controls, variable speed drives, servos and programmable logic controllers are extremely sensitive to heat and contamination.
Smaller cabinet sizes make temperature control difficult and contribute to significant premature failures.
Excessive heat causes components to "cook", digital displays to misread, controls to drift, and breakers to trip below their rated loads. The result is often lost productivity from machine or line shutdowns.
