New source technology of POSTECH which raises exhaust performance greatly using a whirlwind was commercially revised and its marketing is close. Tornado, Inc. will start selling new a kitchen air exhauster using swirl generator based technology developed by Prof. Lee Jin Won of the Department of Mechanical Engineering. This technology effectively excludes fluid uncertainty, and generates a strong whirlwind flow. Its performance is five times better and its efficiency ten times better than older devices. It is an eco-friendly technology, too.

When it was first introduced, high interest was shown and it was awarded the bronze prize of the Korea Invention Patent Exhibition, as well as the 2005 Crosby Field Award, and the best article award of American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-conditioning Engineers. From last march, Tornado Inc. has revised it into commercial form. It is planning to extend a product range based on the current development.
