An Innovative Way to Increase Runtime & Production

Increased Runtime = Increased Production = Increased $$$

The Auxiliary Cooling Package was developed Vortex in conjunction with customers and field staff to increase runtime and production.


Due to inadequate cooling capacity, compressor packages are shut down or turned down in higher ambient temperatures. This equates to runtime and production loss. With the additional cooling capacity of Vortex’s Auxiliary Cooling Package these compressors will run in hot weather to increase runtime and to help meet production targets.

How It Works:

The Auxiliary Cooler is designed as a 1st stage Jacket Water Cooler (JWC) that can be run in series with or isolated from the main cooler as desired. The Auxiliary Cooler Package ties into the jacket water “OUT” line to the cooler. The jacket water is directed into the Auxiliary Cooler for initial cooling and discharges into the existing JWC for the final cooling. Be reducing the temperature of the jacket water through the Auxiliary Cooler the existing compressor JWC now has the capability to cool the jacket water sufficiently in the high ambient temperatures.
