Vortex AC Refrigerant Recovery Machine

Industry-Leading Three Year Replacement Warranty

Vortex AC, the next generation refrigerant recovery machine from INFICON, expands on the proven high performance and durability of the original Vortex. An upgraded compressor with ceramic bearings provides even longer life, increased recovery rates and a guarantee against failed compressors - under any circumstances. Vortex AC contains a single-valve, liquid-tolerant, oil-less compressor driven by a 1/2 HP AC motor. This compressor/motor combination ensures durability and longevity without compromising recovery rates or torque.

Vortex AC is up for your job, whether it involves large amounts of refrigerant vapor or liquid. It carries an industry-leading, 3-year, over-the-counter replacement warranty for the whole machine—the compressor, valves, fan and all other components.

Vortex AC continues to offer the innovative and revolutionary features of the Vortex. Its individual valve assembly with dual-sealed valve stems eliminates leaks, and with its three-valve design, you can purge the machine without changing hoses. Vortex AC is light, compact and well-balanced, providing you with convenience and durability.
