Vortec have just introduced their new, UL listed, Vortex A/C cooling system for electrical enclosures.
The Vortex A/C cooling system, available from Knight Pneumatics , is the new alternative to expensive air conditioners. Just as quiet as an air conditioner (about 62 dBA), the Vortex A/C noise level is 93% less than other conventional, vortex type cabinet coolers.
Three models deliver 900, 1500, 2500 or 5000 BTUH of refrigeration, at a fraction of the size and cost of an air conditioner.
The patent pending design features an integral thermostat to maintain enclosure temperatures within a range of 27° to 32°C, and is suitable for NEMA Type 12, 4 and 4X rated electrical cabinets.
Requiring only a compressed air supply to operate, the Vortex A/C quickly installs in a 38mm knockout hole to keep electrical control panels cool, clean and protected.
The ‘no-downtime’, maintenance-free units incorporate vortex tube technology to convert filtered compressed air into a low pressure, refrigerated air stream distributed throughout the enclosure.
Refrigerated air entering the cabinet provides a light positive purge to seal out contaminants, while hot air is expelled through a relief valve.
Withstanding extreme conditions, the weatherproof, corrosion-resistant, Vortex A/C will provide reliable cooling operation in environments up to 79°C.
