Vortex cooling / heating tubes Answered
I am currently gathering information about vortex tubes for my repulsine project.
There are plenty to choose from on a commercial base but I struggle to find any technical drawings with proper dimensions.
Several home made varities can be found as well but wither with poor performance or incomplete drawings.
So I was thinking that someone here either uses a commercial product at home or work and might be able to take some basic measurements for me?
I am most interested in the relation between inner tube diameter and lenght for the hot and cold ends as well as the size for the vortex chamber itself.
If there is an orifice used on the cold end the hole diameter would be required as well.
My aim is, based on a properly working original, to create a device that might be less efficient but can be used without a compressor.
Would like to see, correct transfer of dimensions given, a vortex tube like system was used in the repulsine.
Some old documents state that there was a "seperator" which removed "heavy air particles" and created a temperature differencial between top cone of the repulsine and the wave disks.
