Versatile Spot Cooling for Machining, Repair Shops and More

Cold Air Guns use vortex tube technology and filtered compressed air to produce sub-freezing air as low as -30 deg F (-34 deg C) for numerous industrial spot cooling applications. With no moving parts to wear out, Cold Air Guns require no electricity, just a compressed air source. The air consumption range is from 15 SCFM to 35 SCFM.  

Cold Air Guns are most often used for cooling of metal parts, in the machining and repair of metals, plastics, wood, ceramics and other materials. Cold air machining outperforms mist coolants and substantially increases tool life and feed rates on dry machining operations. The effective cooling from a Cold Air Gun can eliminate heat-related parts growth while improving parts tolerance and surface finish quality. Cold Air Guns have adjustable temperature and flow settings; and some models have a frost free nozzle to eliminate mess from frost and condensation.
Prices start at $405
