Pfannenberg - Global Solutions and Support for OEMS

Posted by Allison Kowalewski on Oct 4, 2016 9:51:43 AM

When it comes down to the final decision on whether or not to purchase new equipment for a plant, the decision tends to fall down to three major concerns:

  1. What preventative yearly/monthly/weekly/daily maintenance is required?
  2. Is it able to withstand the environment?
  3. How much time and money will it save?

Understanding the Different Types of Liquids Used in Chillers for Cooling Processes

Posted by Marine Vienney on Sep 23, 2016 10:51:56 AM

With manufacturing space at minimum, machine packages have become smaller and liquid cooling has emerged as the most efficient and economical means of removing process heat. Chillers often are the only method of providing sustainable efficiency & reliability performances in "hostile" environments.

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.

The Technology of Cooling Part 1: Cooling with Filterfans®

Posted by Marine Vienney on Jul 7, 2016 11:56:18 AM

If the installation is in a clean, non-hazardous environment with an acceptable ambient (outside the enclosure) temperature range, a simple forced-air cooling system utilizing outside air is usually adequate. Combined with an air filter, such devices generally meet the heat removal needs of typical electronic equipment and many electrical applications.

Liquid Cooling Solutions, the Best Choice for Complete Plant-wide Machine Cooling

Posted by Marine Vienney on Jun 10, 2016 3:15:06 PM

When it comes to Thermal Management, cooling each machinery or electrical cabinet separately is usually the solution chosen by most of the industries. However, this leave a valuable optimization potential untapped.

Maximum efficiency cooling for a whole system can be achieved with a cooling system solution consisting of air to water heat exchangers and water-based chillers. These 'Liquid Solutions' cool the complete assembly and offer significant benefits compared to traditional approaches such as cooling with ambient air.
