A vortex tube construction in which the cold and hot fluids are recirculated to the inlet and energy is extracted from or added to the fluids either by heat exchange or by mechanical removal. This concept is adapted for other devices in which a flow of substantially homogeneous fluid is divided into separate flows at different energy levels.
An energy exchange system including: a casing having a fluid separation chamber therein; annular inner bodies in the casing at opposite sides of and defining the chamber, each inner body being spaced from the walls of the chamber to define an annular passage surrounding the body and communicating with the chamber, each annular passage communicating at its end remote from the chamber with the axial passage within the associated inner body, said axial passages in the inner bodies also communicating with the chamber, thereby establishing a continuous duct t...
