Hazardous Locations Just Got Safer

11/10/2017byVortec Engineer
I have worked 33 years at Vortec and I am proud of our many accomplishments, but I must say this might be the one I am most excited about. We have continuously received feedback from manufacturers about the need for specific hazardous location enclosure coolers. Numerous industrial environments, from petrochemical plants to food manufacturing to foundries, have needed proper cooling equipment.

At United Airlines’ Technical Operations facility in Orland, FL, Bob Kosanke supervises over 550 mechanics. As Aircraft Maintenance Supervisor, Kosanke bears responsibility for handling a rigorous series of checks each airplane must pass before being approved to return to flight rotation. One of the tools these aviation mechanics rely on to move the planes efficiently through the maintenance process is Vortec’s Dual-Force Vac Drum Pump.

Automotive Manufacturing: Cooling Solutions On The Assembly Line

10/5/2017byVortec Engineer
A manufacturing engineer, at a large diesel engine manufacturer, called me looking for a cooling solution. They needed to speed up cooling of a hot 3” diameter cam gear that is a shrink fit onto the engine’s crankshaft. They were using four cold air guns from a competitor of ours to cool the gear and they needed a solution that would allow them to increase the cooling capacity, quickly adjust the cold air temperature and reduce the cooling cycle time.
