PERSONAL AIR CONDITIONERS

Workers in extreme temperatures wear Personal Air Conditioners (PACs) to minimize heat stress and fatigue.  The PAC's improve comfort and productivity. 

Vortec personal cooling vests have two components:

  • a cooling tube with belt that generates cold air to provide air flow to the worker;
  • a diffuse cooling vest through which the cold air flows to cool the worker’s torso

PACs are available in two cooling capacities; 1500 BTUH and 2500 BTUH.   All models can achieve temperature differentials of +/- 45 – 60 deg F from the inlet compressed air temperature using vortex tube technology. These models are adjustable by the worker using an integral temperature adjustment knob.

The diffuse air vests are available in three sizes; large, xlarge and xxlarge which provides continuous cooled air through its perforated inner lining. The durable plasticized PVC vest allows full range of motion with no airflow restrictions; and does not absorb sweat or other contaminants. Body cooling vests can also be worn under other protective clothing.


COOLING ONLY PAC WITH VEST

Workers in extreme temperatures wear Personal Air Conditioners (PACs) to minimize cold stress and fatigue. Another important use is to improve comfort and productivity. This PAC uses vortex tube technology to provide cold air relief and protection to workers in hot environments. This vest helps to minimize heat related injuries and allows the worker to be cool and productive while eliminating the need for costly, unproductive cooling breaks.

  • Temperature adjustment knob provides easy temperature control, even with gloved hands.
  • Available in two different cooling capacities;1500 - 2500 BTU/hr.

 

 

 

BENEFITS

  • Improves worker safety
  • Eliminates the incidence of worker heat stress
  • Reduces frequency and duration of non-productive cooling breaks
  • Maximizes worker productivity and comfort in extreme temperatures
  • Eliminates the need to air condition large warehouse or shop areas

FEATURES

  • Provide continuous, consistent cooling, unlike ice or gel paks
  • Three cooling capacities available
  • Cooling only version has easy temperature adjustment by user, even with gloved hands
  • All PAC models are supplied with an adjustable waist belt and an Industrial Interchange style quick connect for attachment to the compressed air supply
  • Can be worn under other protective clothing
  • Three vest sizes available to fit all workers, plus a vest extension for varying sizes
  • Vest is impermeable to sweat, dirt and other contaminants; easily cleaned
  • Vest allows full range of motion with no airflow restrictions
  • The vest is made of an abrasion resistant, flame retardant vinyl laminated nylon that is self-extinguishing and has a melting point of 300°F.

COOLING ONLY PAC

Workers in extreme temperatures wear Personal Air Conditioners (PACs) to minimize heat stress and fatigue.  The PAC's improve comfort and productivity by using a cooling tube with belt that generates cold air to provide air flow to the worker.

PACs are available in two cooling capacities; 1500 BTUH and 2500 BTUH.   Both models can achieve temperature differentials of +/- 45 – 60 deg F from the inlet compressed air temperature using vortex tube technology. These models are adjustable by the worker using an integral temperature adjustment knob.

BENEFITS

  • Improves worker safety
  • Eliminates the incidence of worker heat stress or cold stress
  • Reduces frequency and duration of non-productive cooling and warming work breaks
  • Maximizes worker productivity and comfort in extreme temperatures
  • Eliminates the need to air condition large warehouse or shop areas

FEATURES

  • Provide continuous, consistent cooling, unlike ice or gel paks
  • The Dual Action PAC can be easily switched from one mode to the other by rotating the tube and swapping the muffler from one end to the other.
  • Three cooling capacities available in the cooling only mode; heating and cooling model is available at two heat/cool capacities
  • Air is delivered at up to +/- 45-60 deg F (+/- 25 - 33 deg C) differential from the compressed air inlet
  • Cooling only version has easy temperature adjustment by user, even with gloved hands
  • All PAC models are supplied with an adjustable waist belt and an Industrial Interchange style quick connect for attachment to the compressed air supply
  • Can be worn under other protective clothing
  • Three vest sizes available to fit all workers, plus a vest extension for varying sizes
  • Vest is impermeable to sweat, dirt and other contaminants; easily cleaned
  • Vest allows full range of motion with no airflow restrictions
  • The vest is made of an abrasion resistant, flame retardant vinyl laminated nylon that is self-extinguishing and has a melting point of 300°F (149°C).
