Personal Air Conditioners

Cininnati based Vortec, introduces Dual Action Personal Air Conditioners (PAC) to minimize heat stress and fatigue for those working in extreme environments like below decks. The PAC generates cold or hot air to provide air flow to the worker, while a cooling/heating vest diffuses the air flow

around the worker’s torso. The plastic vest provides continuous cool or warm air through its perforated lining and does not restrict movement or absorb sweat or other contaminants. It can be worn under protective clothing and has an adjustment knob so workers can set their desired temperature. The system works as a compressed air stream enters vortex tubes that rapidly spin to convert compressed air to a low-pressure cold or warm air source.
