Exair’s Mini Cooler with dual-point hose kit provides a stream of 20°F (-7°C) cold air to prevent heat buildup, reduce downtime and increase productivity. It is said to be effective on small machining applications to eliminate burning, melting and heat related breakage. The dual-point option allows the cold air to be directed at two different spots when cooling larger-diameter tools, two separate points or opposite sides of a material or process. Single-point systems are also available.

A vortex tube converts an ordinary supply of compressed air into cold air. An adjustable magnetic base enables easy positioning. Durable stainless steel construction and an absence of moving parts enables maintenance-free operation, the company says.

The Mini Cooler is ideal for applications where liquid cooling cannot be used due to part contamination or cost, the company says. All models are CE-complaint and operate at 76 dBA.
