CINCINNATI — ITW Vortec, a provider of vortex tube technology and enclosure cooling solutions, recently announced that it has completed the development of and been granted Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Listing on an innovative and unique enclosure cooler product, the Electric Vortex A/C.
The Electric Vortex A/C is the only electric thermostat enclosure cooler that features “plug- and-play” functionality. Unlike traditional electric thermostat enclosure coolers which require additional wiring and piping to properly install, the new Electric Vortex A/C comes pre-wired, requires no additional wiring and just needs an outlet within 6 feet of the unit.
The UL Type 4 and 4X Electric Vortex A/C models draw on Vortec’s 50+ years of air technology expertise and in-depth knowledge of industrial applications to fill the need for safe, effective, and reliable enclosure cooling solutions. Three Vortec models offer 900, 1500 or 2500 BTU/hour cooling capacity to suit the differing needs of each facility. They operate in environments up to 175 degrees farenheit and are designed to cool quietly rather than adding to industrial noise, with their 62 dBA operation, 78 percent quieter than typical vortex coolers. An electric thermostat allows for the user to set the desired temperature to be maintained in the enclosure and the cooler will only turn on when necessary, conserving energy from compressed air usage. All three of the Electric Vortex A/C models have a small footprint to fit on all enclosures and in confined areas; and can be mounted on the top, side or front of the enclosure. Vortex A/C units have already been successfully cooling a wide range of industrial environments from petrochemical plants to food manufacturing.
