(57) Abstract:

The device is designed to separate the components of air by blowing the mixture through a vortex tube and can be used to increase oxygen in the combustion chambers, and medicine. To improve the separation of mixtures of oxygen before entering the pipe is converted into ozone, which has a higher critical temperature than other gases, and the separation is more efficient. Eye-catching ozone can be used directly or put it to gaseous oxygen. The technical result consists in increasing the efficiency of air separation. 2 S. and 2 C.p. f-crystals, 2 Il.

The proposed device relates to the field of air separation in the vortex tube, using various physical properties of the gases of its components. Such devices are widely used in industry [1, 2, 3]. The closest analogue of the proposed device can be considered [4].

The essence of the proposed method in comparison with the prototype is that one of the components of the partial mixture of oxygen before separation in the vortex tube is placed into the ozone a form of oxygen dramatically different in their physically is SS="ptx2">

In Fig. 1 presents one possible implementation of the proposed device.

The device 1 blows the air in a vortex tube 2, in front of the entrance of oxygen contained in the air, under the action of the device 3 is fully or partially converted into ozone a form of oxygen having a critical temperature of - 12oC, compared to diatomic oxygen having a critical temperature of - 118oC.

Upon reaching the critical temperature in the pipe properties of ozone dramatically changed, and it will be released in the first place compared to other components of the gas mixture.

Eye-catching ozone can be used directly or expanding it to gaseous oxygen output device 4. There may be devices 5, drying the air before it enters the pipe, to prevent numerazione ice.

Under the device for the formation of ozone refers to any of the existing devices for the formation of ozone, for instance [5, 6], under the decomposition of ozone - any of the existing methods for the decomposition of, for example, UV radiation [7].

As a special case, it is necessary to mention that the role of the device 1 plays is viginia vehicle.

In addition to this you can use any of the known device vortex separation of gases, for example, Fig. 2.

The entrance to the pipe can be both nozzle and neoplasm.
