Now-a-days, the first and foremost important quality of any research or development is its eco-friendly nature. As we know environment safety has become an important aspect of the industries and people in common. Vortex tube is also known as non-conventional cooling device that will produce cold air and hot air when we passed compressed air from compressor without causing any harm to the nature. In vortex tube, when a compressed air from compressor is tangentially passed into vortex chamber a free and forced vortex flow will be generated which will be divide into two air streams i.e., one has lower temperature than inlet temperature and other one has higher temperature than inlet temperature. It can be used for any type of spot cooling application. In this research an attempt is made to fabricate and test a simple vortex tube. The effect of change in length and diameter of vortex tube i.e., (L/D) ratio is investigated and presented in this paper.
