How to Choose the Best Heater for your Electrical Enclosure?

Condensation is one of the biggest dangers for electrical enclosures. As long as the components operate under load, their own warmth prevents water from condensing. If the process is switched off, the electronics cool down. This is where Pfannenberg control cabinet radiant heaters and fan heaters provide additional protection for your electronics.

Candy Canes - The go-to holiday candy.  As a child, they are passed out and enjoyed by many, and as adults they are necessary for almost any holiday decoration.  This peppermint candy involves very delicate care when being processed.  There are many differences in temperature to heat up or cool down – just enough that it maintains flavor and will not ruin the product quality.  All throughout the manufacturing process of candy canes, temperatures are critical.  At certain stages, the temperature needs to be increased to help form the canes, then at other parts it needs to be cooled so that it can be mixed to perfect flavor and coloring.
