Online Heat Load Calculator
Vortec Unveils New Online Heat Load Calculator and Enclosure Cooler Selector
A new online tool available at www.Vortec.com allows users to determine cooling requirements (and thus Vortec suggested enclosure coolers) based on the actual parameters of their particular application. Users can input enclosure height, width and depth, compressed air inlet temperature and pressure, current cabinet temperatures, worst case ambient temperature and whether the enclosure is in direct contact with sunlight (and enclosure color). The Heat Load Calculator then calculates the total heat load in the enclosure and suggests a Vortec enclosure cooler suitable for the application. A print button allows users to easily print the completed form, heat load results and the suggested cooler. This new online tool is ideal for a wide range of industries and applications, including industrial/manufacturing, food, chemical, water, wastewater and other processing environments, oil refining and petrochemical processing, and others that have become dependent on microprocessors, PLCs, and VFDs.

How Vortex Tubes Work
Vortex Tubes convert compressed air to a low-pressure cold air source to keep electronic enclosures and panel components protected so they can operate precisely. A compressed air stream enters the vortex tube where it spins rapidly, splitting into hot and cold air streams. Most Vortec Enclosure Cooler models are thermostatically controlled to regulate cabinet temperatures within a specified range.
With low initial cost and lower maintenance costs compared to air conditioners, fans, or thermoelectric coolers, Vortec technology is an essential part of many of the hottest and dirtiest industries, including refineries and petrochemical facilities. With trouble-free operation in ambient temperatures up to 175?F (80?C), Vortec coolers prevent costly shutdowns and massive production losses.
Cincinnati-based Vortec is a division of the Fortune 200 firm Illinois Tool Works, and has been recognized as the market leader and innovator of pneumatic products that use compressed air efficiently to solve cooling, cleaning and conveying problems for more than 50 years. In the early 1960’s Vortec was the first company to develop technology for converting the vortex tube phenomenon into practical and effective, industrial cooling solutions.
