The vortex tube is a non-conventional refrigeration system is a simple, small &lightweight mechanical device that separates a gas into hot and cold streams. It has no moving parts. It has many advantages over conventional cooling system. It is an intriguing device that separates an incoming high-pressure fluid stream into a two low-pressure streams. Work Interaction during expansion process causes a temperature decrease in one of the two exit streams i.e. in cold side, while the other one experiences a temperature increases i.e. hot side. The compressed air is injected tangentially into a chamber with high degree of swirl. On the other hand because of the valve only the outer periphery part is allowed to escape, where as the inner part is forced into the inner vortex with a small diameter within the outer vortex. In this work we made vortex tube made of UPVC material to study the effect of length and diameter on the performance of the refrigeration system, how different parameters are change with the inlet pressure and at different openings of control valve is also investigated. The results are drawn for the vortex tube with better performance. The material used for the construction of the vortex tube is PVC.
