In connection with a study of the gas separation taking place in the vortex tube. a series of pressure determinations has been carried out. These, together with data from the literature, permit an evaluation of the magnitude and shape of the tangential velocity profile in the type of tube tested. It is indicated how these results may be interpreted in terms of the strength of the radial and axial velocity components. In a previous publication1) a number of experimental data were presented, showing the gas-separation ability of the vortex tube. It was concluded that the driving force behind the observed effects is the centrifugal field.
