Fire and Gas Alarm Notification Appliances for Large, Noisy Industrial Facilities

Louder Horns and Brighter Strobe Lights offer Better Warning and Greater Effective Coverage Area

When mass notification is needed for large, noisy industrial facilities, it is important to understand the ability of a notification appliance to be perceived through the high ambient noise conditions within the building as well as the hearing protection that may be in use.

This flyer highlights the features of Pfannenberg’s sounders and combination strobe sounders that excel at providing the louder, brighter signals needed to comply with NFPA and OSHA recommendations for industrial hazard warning.

Additionally, data is presented which characterizes the notification appliance’s ability (or inability) to effectively warn throughout the entire intended coverage area.

Pfannenberg EB Chillers: Tailor-made Solution for a Rail Component Manufacturer


Customer Requirement

A rail component manufacturer needed a solution to eliminate downtime caused from the overheating of their track drilling unit.  The current system used 2 undersized chillers, unable to keep up with the cooling requirements, especially when the ambient temperatures in the plant rose due to the hot afternoon sun.

The Pfannenberg Solution

An analysis carried out on location with the customer revealed that the cooling capacity of the two chillers no longer corresponded with the current requirements.  The cooling system needed to be redesigned.

Taking the temporarily intermittent high ambient temperature in the factory into account, the choice fell on our high performance EB 90 chiller.  This unit has an integrated control module which allows for precise temperature control of the cooling medium.EB_Chiller_drawing.jpg

The solution excels due to:

  • Separate cooling and hydraulic circuits
  • Control module to program small hysteresis of the oil temperature
  • Use at ambient temperatures of up to +40°C
  • Sturdy steel housing with thick powder coating

Customer Benefits

As a result of our plant audit, the customer was able to invest in a new solution that was tailor-made to meet their current needs instead of spending money on a temporary, expensive and insufficient repair of their old chiller system.  The new solution ensures the desired machine uptime even during those days affected by the hot sun.  A new maintenance contract was signed to support the optimum functionality of the equipment for the long term.
