Abstract

Vortex tube is a simple device which separate an inlet gas with a proper pressure into hot and cold flows .This device is well-suited for generating cooling load gas because it provides the cold gas without using any refrigerants . Many research works has been carried out in order to identify the factors which contribute to Vortex tube performance. Here, an experimental study has been made to determine the effect of geometrical (length of vortex tube) and thermo-physical (pressure) parameters on vortex tube performance and air also used as a working fluid.
