VCV COOLING VEST

Workers in extreme temperatures wear Vortec Cooling Vests (VCVs) to minimize heat stress and fatigue. The VCVs improve comfort and productivity.

Vortec cooling vests have two components:

VCVs are available in two cooling capacities; 1500 BTUH and 2500 BTUH. All models can achieve temperature differentials of +/- 45 – 60° 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 cooling vests are available in three sizes; large, xlarge, and xxlarge which provides continuous cooled air through its perforated inner lining. The durable nylon oxford vest allows a 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.

*Vest is made with flame resistant fabric that meets CPAI-84, Sec. 6 Fire Standard Specifications

*All Cooling Tubes have 1/4” compressed air quick connect and 3/4” garden hose thread for discharge of air to vest

*Note: NIOSH approves only complete Supplied Air Respirators (SAR) Systems. None of the Vortec Cooling Vest products are approved for use with a respirator system

 

 

 

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 packs
  • Two cooling capacities available
  • Has easy temperature adjustment by user, even with gloved hands
  • All VCV 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
  • Vest is made with flame resistant fabric that meets CPAI-84, Sec. 6 Fire Standard Specifications

Vortec Cooling Tubes

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Workers in extreme temperatures wear Vortec Cooling Tubes to minimize heat stress and fatigue.  The Vortec Cooling Tubes improve comfort and productivity by using a belt with an attached cooling tube that generates cold air to provide air flow to the worker.

Vortec Cooling Tubes 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 on the hot air muffler end of the Cooling Tube.

*All Cooling Tubes have 1/4” compressed air quick connect and 3/4” garden hose thread for discharge of air to vest
