    Vortec Cooling Vests (VCVs) are ideal for workers in extreme temperatures to minimize heat stress and fatigue. They can improve comfort and productivity while ensuring workers stay cool and maintain a safe body temperature. 


    These vests have two components:

    • a cooling tube that generates cold air to provide airflow to the worker
    • a perforated cooling vest through which the cold air flows to cool the worker’s torso


    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. The wearer can easily adjust temperatures to obtain optimal comfort.


    Vests are available in three sizes: Large, X-Large, and XX-Large. The perforated material of the vest's inner lining allows cool air to continuously flow through.


    These durable vests allow a full range of motion with no airflow restrictions and do not absorb sweat or other contaminants. Body cooling vests can also be worn under other protective clothing.
