A review on the vortex tube geometrical affecting paramters
One of the increased usability energy separation devices that deals with the compressed fluids such as the air, the water and several Refrigerants is the Ranque-Hilsch vortex tube due to its simple operating principle to separate the compressed fluid to two hot and cold streams. The aim of the current paper is to review the Ranque-Hilsch tube flow separation most affecting geometrical parameters hat are conducted numerically and experimentally such as the injection nozzles configuration, the vortex tube orifice to the nozzle’s dimensional ratio and also the vortex tube configuration in addition to the optimum conical valve angle.
