How Our Thermostats Save You Money

18/12/2017parVortec Engineer
The thermostats on our enclosure coolers are another way that Vortec is trying to help customers save time and money. We understand that compressed air usage can be costly, and one of the easiest ways to save money is by ensuring that compressed air is used only when necessary. Automation is increasingly growing, because it allows for ease of use and ensures that you can “set it and forget it.” Our thermostats help to reduce compressed air usage, providing an efficient and cost saving method for cooling your enclosure. Here is a look into how our thermostats work.

Vortec Vortex Tubes: Built to Last

01/12/2017parVortec Engineer
Vortec recently received a call from one of our loyal customers inquiring about our vortex tubes. They were curious to see how long vortex tubes lasted before they should consider replacing them. Naturally, this peaked my interest, “Well hypothetically they should last forever if they are properly maintained. Why, how long have you had one?” Turns out, they have had one of our vortex tubes for over 45 years! Mind you, we were founded in 1961 (56 years ago) so this wasn’t the first vortex tube we ever built, but it’s not far off.

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

05/10/2017parVortec 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.
