It is no surprise that vortex tubes are largely used in many industries. This is not only because they are easy to maintain or are simple to operate but also because they are much more advanced compared to other machines. Previous used machines that were used for temperature control consumed more amount of time to get a certain amount of temperature and also consumed a lot of energy in maintaining that temperature. The vortex tubes are much more capable of temperature control and are easy to maintain. Their uses in many industries are because of their low price and as they bar any hazardous risks. The applications of vortex tubes in industries are as such
- Food industry– vortex tubes are very useful in the food industry because of the machines ability for high and low temperatures. They are used in the preparation of products such as cookies and biscuits using the high temperatures. Canned foods or stored foods that require complete absence of water is taken care of by these machines. The ability of controlling very low temperatures also plays a part in storing foods for a long period of time. These applications speed up the process of food preparation increasing the products that bring the industry benefit.
- Metal industries– the metal industry is another place that makes great use of these vortex tubes. With different types of nozzles and the ability for extreme hot and cold temperatures, vortex tubes have a lot of uses in this industry. They are used for cutting of metals as the temperature can be focused to a spot. The tubes are useful in making pipes and rods, effectively removing any kind of moisture present during the preparation of metals and also the removal of any type of contamination that could affect the quality of the end product.
- Automobile industry– the use of vortex tubes can be very beneficial to the automobile industry. This is because the preparation of the parts with the help of a vortex tube leads to lustrous and long lasting products. The removal of any type of contamination before applying the paint and also the option of steam blow off reduce the chances of dulling of cars prematurely. Vortex tube are hence useful in making the industry produce better products and also in a much faster way than any other machines that were used before.
These mechanical devices are used in almost all industries present and have equal importance no matter where they are used. This is because of their easy controlling and the guaranteed promise of increased productivity that benefits industries.
