Experimental Investigation on Vortex Tube by Using Alluminium Material

G. Ramakrishna, P. Lakshmi Reddy


The vortex tube is a simple and eco friendly device generates both hot and cold air simultaneously as its two ends using a source of pressurized air.  The compressed air is enters tangentially through   nozzle with high velocity expands and form a swirl motion.  During   this flow pattern energy transfer takes place resulting in formation of hot and cold streams at its two ends.

Separating cold and hot streams by using vortex tube can be used for various industrial applications, where hot air and cold air is required simultaneously. the vortex tube parameters like material , lengths  inlet and exit plays key roles to achieving maximum proficiency the present investigation is carried out  for  two  different  material ( copper and brass ) at different lengths and pressures .
