Mist Tool Coolers / Mist Tool Cooling System

Mist Tool Coolers assist in spot cooling applications for a variety of industrial machining processes but increasing matchining rates and extending tool life. When lubrication is required as well as cooling, lubricating mist can be reduced and cooling enhanced.

Mist Tool Cooling System

Mist Tool Coolers : No electricity required - simplicity in design, Low Cost, Reduces coolant / lubricant cost by using less fluid, Improves safety with less mist, No moving parts except for an adjusting screw for the fluid, Small and lightweight - portable, Maintenance free operation.

Mist Tool Cooling System Frigid-X™ Sub Zero Vortex™ is efficient and can improve dry machining operations. Mist Coolers assist in spot cooling applications for a variety of industrial machining processes but increasing matchining rates and extending life.

The Nex Flow™ Frigid-X™ SUB ZERO VORTEX™ Cooling Mist System is a unique patent pending mist unit designed to improve machining operations requiring cooling and/or lubrication when dry machining cannot alone be used.

Unlike mist systems that supply liquid which is not cooled, or more costly system that cool the liquid, the simple design of the Vortex™ Cooling Mist System, supplies and cools the liquid to as low as 40° F (5° C) using a small vortex tube without any additional pumping system. The result is a low cost and essentially maintenance free system that supplies cold liquid reducing the mist volume by as much as Sub Zero 20%.


How Mist Tool Cooler Work




Compressed air enters at point (A). Inside the Vortex Tube / Hilsch Tube the compressed air is made to spin using a “generator”. It travels in one direction along the small (hot end) vortex tubes and then back inside itself in the reverse direction creating one stream of air (B) and the second stream of air (C) in the opposite direction. The outside stream of air gets hot and exhausts at point (D). The centre column of air gets cold and exists at point (E). Temperatures and capacities can vary by adjusting the hot end plug at (D) and by using different “generators” .
