Pfannenberg is proud to present for the first time its Revolutionary New Way to Cool your Electrical Enclosures!

Discover at IMTS Pfannenberg’s New PKS 3000 Series Air/Air Heat Exchangers, the Next Generation Cooling for Electrical Enclosures

Pfannenberg’s PKS 3000 Series Air to Air Heat Exchangers use a revolutionary next generation cooling technology that out-performs conventional heat exchangers and/or heat pipe solutions. One of the best technologies to use when there is a temperature difference between the internal target temperature and the surrounding temperature (∆T≥10°C) is air to air technology.

An air/air heat exchanger removes heat from inside of the enclosure to the cooler environment using the least amount of energy while still providing a closed loop ingress protection.

 

We will also be featuring demonstrations of the following products/solutions at the IMTS show in Chicago:

Air to Water Heat Exchangers: specifically designed for enclosure cooling in harsh areas.

Our PWS Air/Water Heat Exchangers are designed to fit into most existing AC enclosure cutouts and use existing glycol or water sources for cooling.

 

 

 

packaged compact chillerChillers: Pfannenberg’s chillers guarantee a central and cost-effective solution and perfectly answer industry’s need for precise temperature control and absolute reliability, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Design is compact, maintenance friendly and they easily match global requirements due to the flexibility in terms of certifications such as UL. CC Chillers are ideal for quick setup and trouble free operation.

 

 

 

“Signaling Confusion”: Did you ever notice that many of the buzzers and lights, sound and look the same across many of your lines? OEM machines typically come supplied with the same brands/types of buzzers and flashing lights.  Pfannenberg’s PATROL and PYRA Signaling Products are easy to install onto existing machines, they feature a durable, robust design, and have 80 different tones for 4 different events. Making your facility more safe.

Pfannenberg’s North American Headquarters expansion project


We are growing! We are currently about 1/2 way through the expansion of our North American headquarters. Once completed we will be adding new engineering and office space to accomodate our growing team.

Our new expansion project measures 5.735 ftand will feature new engineering office space, a laboratory and a 1.800 ftsecond floor dedicated to meeting rooms.The production space will be redesigned to improve the workflow between manufacturing and shipping/receiving with new ramps and fork truck paths for better material handling.

The laboratory will also host a new environmental test chamber which will allow the engineering team to increase our product sizes and test them under extended temperature ranges from – 40°C to + 70°C with a cooling capacity of 40 Kw. This new chamber will also support UL certification.

Here at our North American headquarters our three-year sales growth is nearly 28%. With this growth we have been recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in our region. This building expansion will enable the Sales/Marketing, Engineering and Production teams to work together in a more efficient way to meet the demanding market expectations.
