Pfannenberg Signaling Alarms Notify Personnel and Community of Chlorine Gas Leak

In 2015 Pfannenberg provided signaling notification appliances (alarm horns and strobes) to the North Tonawanda Wastewater Treatment Facility as part of their new Gas Detection Alarm System. On the evening of Tuesday, September 13, 2016 there was a very small chlorine gas leak. Pfannenberg's PATROL Signaling Alarms were triggered through the system notifying plant personnel and surrounding area. The alarms could heard up to a mile away from the facility.

The Advantages of Air To Water Heat Exchangers for Thermal Management in Harsh Environments

Control Panel Cooling Technique Helps Mitigate Hydrogen Sulfide Corrosion Problems with Wastewater Pumping Systems

Money-saving approach yields longer service life while conserving energy.

Air To Water Heat Exchangers provide
an energy efficient and reduced
manintenance method for cooling
electrical control panels.

Enclosure Cooling Units offer a straightforward active-cooling technique for pump control panels, however, they are not necessarily the best choice for all installation locations. Dirt, dust, and other airborne
contaminants can clog condenser coils; while corrosive gasses in the
environment can lead to premature failures.

On the other hand, Air To Water Heat Exchangers can satisfy the
same requirements without circulating ambient air within the housing,
thereby eliminating the clogging and corrosion problems associated
with airborne contamination.
