ITW Vortec’s dual action personal air conditioner (PAC) is coupled with a lightweight vest which delivers either cool or warm air to the wearer’s torso and neck. By wearing the vest and PAC, industrial employees working in extreme temperatures can avoid the negative impact of low temperatures in winter as well as heat stress and fatigue in the summer. Since the Dual Action PAC offers both heating and cooling capabilities, it can be used in all seasons.

Workers can adjust the PAC to provide either heating or cooling. Thanks to vortex tube technology, it provides air temperatures ranging from 30°F to 120°F. The diffuse air vests are available in three sizes and are durable and flame retardant and permit full range of motion with no airflow restrictions. The material does not absorb sweat or other contaminants. The vest can be worn under other protective clothing and features a collar that can be unfolded to deliver airflow to the neck and face.
