**NOW AVAILABLE** Pfannenberg's New NEMA TYPE 3R/4/4x Rainhoods
An OEM machine builder in the Marine industry needed a thermal management solution that was NEMA Type 4/4X rated, but also resistant to highly corrosive salt spray (fog). In an industry that encounters very harsh environments, it is crucial to be able to have a product that will be able to withstand such conditions.
Pfannenberg, the specialist for industrial thermal management solutions and signaling technology will be exhibiting for the first time at Drinktec, the world's leading trade fair for the beverage and liquid food industry to be held in Munich from 11 to 15 September 2017.
Pfannenberg will be at stand 138 in Hall B3 showing tough, efficient thermal management solutions and signaling technology for the beverage and liquid food industry.
Pfannenberg worked with a bakery end user to develop a cooling solution for their control cabinets. Most of the OEM equipment installed in the bakery called for air conditioners to cool the drives. PLCs and additional electronics. Most times Cooling units can be a convenient and effective method for cooling electronics, except when located in dusty, humid areas within the plant.
These AC units failed regularly and had to be replaced. This was not a sustainable solution as the customer had constant issues with clogging coils and overheating panels.
Once a panel overheated they had to either: not operate the machine, or operate the cabinets with the doors open. This would let all the contaminants that were hurting the AC units into the cabinet, damaging the drives and other components.
