The Technology of Cooling Part 3: Cooling with Closed Loop Cooling Units

Posted by Marine Vienney on Jul 21, 2016 11:58:32 AM

Pfannenberg cooling units operate on the principle of the Carnot cycle. This means that the cooling units function as a heat pump that “pumps” the thermal energy transferred from the
electronic cabinet (heat dissipated from the components) up to a higher level of temperature (the ambient temperature can reach levels as high as + 55 °C). The air inside the enclosure is cooled down by the evaporator and at the same time dehumidified.

Selecting the Proper Equipment for Food and Beverage Applications

Posted by Allison Kowalewski on May 17, 2016 5:00:14 PM

 

Proper thermal management is key for saving resources and keeping electronics (and equipment) up and running on a consistent basis. It is important to understand the various types of cooling methods available and how the ambient conditions may effect the product chosen.  Choosing the wrong method may lead to a solution that is undersized or oversized, or fails prematurely due to being specified for incompatible ambient conditions.

Pfannenberg's Cooling Units Help Support Bottling Inspection

Posted by Allison Kowalewski on Apr 22, 2016 1:52:32 PM


We understand as a consumer that it can get aggravating when you purchase a bottled beverage and the packaging is either defective or the container is not filled properly. It is crucial that beverage and food manufactures implement an inspection system - not only for sanitary reasons, but also for product quality.  Once quality is compromised, the manufacturer loses brand reputation.
