Keeping it Cool with Vortex

15/02/2022parVortec Engineer
Thermal testing has proven that natural convection cooling is not adequate for today’s smaller, high power density enclosures. Heat dissipation by forced convection (fan cooling) is the most frequently used method of cooling. Forced air-cooling systems can provide heat transfer rates that are ten times greater than those achievable with natural convection and radiation, but even this is not adequate to cool faster electronic components when they are located in hostile plant environments.

Maintaining the Angels Share: Preventing Distillery Evaporation

26/02/2021parVortec Engineer
When distillers make whisky, a small amount evaporates through the barrels and into the heavens. It’s known as the “angel’s share.” In winemaking, when wine evaporates during the aging process, it’s called product loss. Over the course of three years, a barrel can lose 14% of its wine. For a small, family-owned winery like Miramont Estate, that’s a lot of product loss.
