VCool vortex cooling system is designed to provide precise temperature management for small enclosures located in harsh, dirty or high temperature environments. Available from Hoffman, cooling system is powered by compressed air, so it is not dependent on the surrounding air's purity or temperature. Compact and lightweight, the system fits any standard size Hoffman enclosure and can be installed by one person. System has a cooling capacity to 2,400 BTU/hr (733 W) and conserves energy by operating only when necessary. Internal air is cooled below ambient temperatures to protect components; humidity is re-moved, corrosion is inhibited and continuous positive air pressure is maintained to prevent ingress of dust, dirt and high temperature air. Chilled air is generated without refrigerant or moving parts via vortex technology.
