Personal Air Conditioner

Personal Air Conditioners use filtered compressed air and vortex tube technology to keep workers comfortable in extremely hot or cold areas.


Unlike “ice pack” type vests, the Personal Air conditioner offers consistent and continuous cooling to minimize heat stress and increase worker productivity in hot surroundings. The vest allows full range of motion with no airflow restrictions and can be worn under welding leathers or protective clothing. The vortex tube unit, worn on a supplied belt, cools or heats inlet temperature by ±60°F
