Vortex Tube, Working Fluid, Materials


Refrigerating systems has emerged as an important necessity of human life in present century. Today, these systems are used in many applications. Present research work is devoted to the investigations for of an important category of refrigerant systems, vortex tubes. In the research work, combinations of six gases and three materials are made for analyzing pressure differences and thermal gradients for a vortex tube. The flowing gases were Argon, CO2, Nitrogen, Oxygen, Helium, and air, and the materials are Cast iron, Copper and Brass. As a result, combination of Helium and Brass emerged out as the best combination for the application.
