How to Choose the Best Heater for your Electrical Enclosure?

Condensation is one of the biggest dangers for electrical enclosures. As long as the components operate under load, their own warmth prevents water from condensing. If the process is switched off, the electronics cool down. This is where Pfannenberg control cabinet radiant heaters and fan heaters provide additional protection for your electronics.

 

How to Choose the Best Heater for your Electrical Enclosure?


Radiant Heaters
Pfannenberg PRH-M Mini Radiant Heaters (10 to 30 Watts) are ideal for smaller enclosures or for the heating of isolated spots in sensitive areas. These heaters use natural convection to heat the cabinet and prevent condensate formation. FLH series of Radiant Heaters (up to 150 Watts) are used in combination with a thermostat or hygrostat, mainly to avoid excessively low temperatures or high humidity into the enclosure.


Fan Heaters
Ideal for use in larger electrical enclosures with higher heat requirements, Pfannenberg FLH series of Fan Heaters (250 to 400 Watts) have an integrated fan that assists the natural convection and provides fast distribution of the heat in the electrical enclosure. The fan heaters are used in combination with a thermostat or hygrostat, and are designed to protect electronics from moisture or corrosion caused by high humidity, low temperatures or condensation caused by rapid temperature change.

Need more than “just” a Heater?


Pfannenberg also offers a range of fan heaters with an  integrated thermostat: PFH-T (200 – 1200 Watts) dedicated to larger enclosures and with flexible mounting options. These fan heaters with adjustable thermostat are especially designed to protect electronics from the effects of low temperatures such as corrosion, freezing or condensation, which can damage critical components within a control enclosure.

To provide the best Thermal Management for your electronics, using a thermostat or hygrostat results in greater reliability of your production process:

  • Pinpoint distribution and constant temperature in the control cabinet
  • Reduced energy consumption and optimization of the efficiency of the heaters.
  • Additional savings on energy, materials and time.

Pfannenberg’s heaters, thermostats and hygrostats  detect and keep ambient conditions above dew point to avoid the harmful effects of condensation on your electronics. They can be used as a standalone product or in partnership with our Filterfan® and Cooling Unit product lines for a complete Thermal Management of your electrical enclosures.

How Pfannenberg Thermal Management & Signaling Solutions Save the Holidays


Pfannenberg products ensure that manufacturing operations are up and running – especially during the holidays when many manufacturing lines are always online. Read below on just a few example applications on how Pfannenberg supports these product lines and keeps them running.

Candy Canes:

The go-to holiday candy.  As a child, they are passed out and enjoyed by many, and as adults they are necessary for almost any holiday decoration.  This peppermint candy involves very delicate care when being processed.  There are many differences in temperature to heat up or cool down – just enough that it maintains flavor and will not ruin the product quality.  All throughout the manufacturing process of candy canes, temperatures are critical.  At certain stages, the temperature needs to be increased to help form the canes, then at other parts it needs to be cooled so that it can be mixed to perfect flavor and coloring.

The sugar kneading machine is very large and very powerful.  Right after the sugary mixture is heated up and completed its first round of mixing, it is dumped onto a liquid cooling table, where the candy has its flavoring added and mixed. The amber liquid when being first mixed is heated up to around 300°F.  Once being transferred to the kneading machine, this large machine will mix in the flavoring by pushing and folding the candy – slowly cooling the product from its hot temperature. Pfannenberg’s CC Chillers can play a key role in supplying the cool liquid to the table which kneads the candy.  If the table is left uncooled or heated, it will change the look, consistency, and taste of the final product.  Not only is it crucial to have Pfannenberg Compact Chillers to cool the table, it is also import to utilize Pfannenberg’s PWS Air to Water Heat Exchangers to cool the electrical panels controlling the entire process.


Wrapping Paper:

The wrapping of gifts dates back to the ancient Chinese, but here in the US  it hit its popularity in 1917 when Joyce Clyde Hall and Rollie Hall (founders of Hallmark) decided to modernize it. Wrapping paper is a staple item.  When it comes to holidays and special occasions, there are many steps that go into the manufacturing of wrapping paper.

Artists have to create such artwork which is then etched onto copper cylinders that are bathed in a liquid bath of chromium, which galvanizes the copper to protect it from wear and tear.  From here these rolls each have a various piece of the final wrapping paper artwork.  Each color has its own roller. The paper will go through a series of various printers where it encounters the artwork on the copper rolls for the different colors.  These metal rolls need to be highly controlled with temperature.  Too hot or cold could cause the paper to stick to these rolls and cause a paper jam which leads to loss revenue and downtime. As part of a complete solution  Pfannenberg’s CC Series Chillers help to control the temperature to the print rollers and Pfannenberg’s Air to Water Heat Exchangers provide proper cooling for the control equipment operating these large machines. To complelent our full product line,  Pfannenberg’s Signaling products are needed at every stage of the manufacturing process to alert employees of a problem. Pfannenberg’s Signaling Solutions help the employees to be able to hear and see exactly where the problem is occurring (which machine) and what problem is occurring (what action is need).

Wrapping paper leads to the excitement and mystery of the gift. Without the proper cooling and operation of the equipment that are used to produce the paper, it would be difficult to wrap the gifts.  Pfannenberg aids in the manufacturing process of wrapping paper.


Champagne:

The holiday season concludes with celebrating New Years.  New Years is a time to reflect on the past and perhaps try new things in the upcoming year. Celebrations are had with friends old and new, and champagne is typically the drink of choice. One crucial aspect in champagne manufacturing is the inspection and bottling stages of the process. The champagne bottle undergoes many cleanings and inspections prior, during, and after bottling.  Each stage will monitor and check various aspects.  The final inspection step will make sure that the champagne bottle is not cracked or damaged and to check the champagne to make sure that there are not fragments of cork or metal casing. A bright light will shine through the bottles where a machine will scan and take pictures for an employee to monitor/double check that the inspections are all being passed.

Pfannenberg has proven experience in working directly with food and beverage inspection OEMs to provide complete engineering solutions for the cooling of x-ray tubes and the internal cavity of their inspection machines. The Pfannenberg team has come up with a complete solution to utilize a CC Chiller in conjunction with a small PWS Air to Water Heat Exchanger to cool the x-ray tubes and internal cavity.  By combining products and eliminating a compressor based air conditioning unit, the Pfannenberg liquid cooling solution requires less maintenance and is far more cost effective by eliminating dependencies on different competing products and eliminating downtime.

Vacuum Turkey Packaging – Thanksgiving Edition

Tis’ the season – for we have many things to be thankful for this year!  With the holiday season quickly approaching, we are taking the time to reflect on all of our blessings.  Common dishes for most Traditional American Thanksgivings include turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, green bean casseroles, fresh baked rolls, and pumpkin pie. Most of us look forward to this holiday all year, for it is a time to be thankful and gather with loved ones.

Turkey processors themselves have to really work all year to meet this spike in demand around the holidays.  Innovation in new packaging technology allows these processors to be able to serve a fresh Turkey that has a longer shelf life without chemicals.  Pfannenberg’s thermal management and chiller products are a perfect fit for aiding in the packaging side of Turkey processing.

Vacuum packaging is the most popular form of packing and food preservation for full turkeys. The process reduces the amount of oxygen from the package by utilizing a vacuum and completely sealing it, removing the extra oxygen to prevent contamination. The removal of oxygen allows the product to have a longer shelf-life. The packaging material protects the meat from the passage of various gases and outside moisture.

When it comes to the vacuum packing machines they operate at very high speeds, processing many turkeys in a short amount of time.  It’s critical that the control enclosure electronics  do not overheat. Proper cabinet temperature control is essential to keeping production on schedule. To keep these electrical enclosures cool, the processing facility has several options. If using traditional enclosure air conditioners (cooling units) then our washdown NEMA Type 4/4x DTS 3000 Series Cooling Units would be a good solution. For a more economical and maintenance free solution our stainless steel PWS Air to Water Heat Exchangers could be used with existing water lines or a Pfannenberg Packaged Chiller. These both would be perfect options to protect the electronics and  drives that are so important to keep everything online and running.

Besides the electronics in the electrical panel, the motors (servo motors) need a chiller to maintain the cool liquids running through the machines.  Pfannenberg’s CC Series Chillers are ideal for quick setup and trouble free operation.  Packaged and ready-to-use, Pfannenberg’s chillers require piping and power to install a solution for process cooling applications.

Pfannenberg’s enclosure cooling solutions and chillers aid in meeting the high demands of poultry processing equipment during the peak season helping to ensure there is not a turkey shortage on the biggest turkey day of the year!


Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

Enclosure Cooling for Commercial Bakeries – Easy As Pie


The two most important characteristics of creating a great tasting pie are the filling and the crust.  For the filling, fruit is mixed with sugar, cinnamon, honey and other spices (depending on the type of filling) in a large sauce pan. Ingredients are heated and mixed to combine the flavors for the filling.

In today’s modern lifestyle, frozen foods have played a major role in providing convenience to customers.  Pies – a family fall favorite, often take time that many families do not have. This is the time of the year where kids are back to school, parents are running all over doing drop-offs and pick-ups, rushing to work; taking the time to bake or make a full meal is often difficult.  Large industrial bakeries can manufacture roughly 200,000 frozen pies a day.  There is a high demand in this modern age for this aspect of convenience.

This process requires automation components such as VFDs in large electrical control panels to operate the system. Heat is a by-product of this process and Pfannenberg’s PWS Air to Water Heat Exchangers are ideal for cooling electrical components. Pfannenberg’s Air Water Heat Exchangersutilize chilled water, that is readily available, and an internal fan to provide cooled air preventing critical electronics from overheating. These units are particularly adapted for harsh environments like bakeries when there’s flour everywhere.

 

These pies are then moved to the depositing machine, where the filling is then dropped into the pie sheets.  The lid of crust is then placed on the filled fruit pie.  These lids are mass produced and “forked” or sealed to give that touch as if it was just like our mothers or grandmothers homemade pie. These top crust lids help seal in the filling when the pie is being baked at home.  Once sealed, the pies are moved to a blast freezer for rapid chilling.

Once chilled the pie is then moved to be packed and shipped off to local grocery stores.To make that flakey-buttery crust, shortening, flour, and other ingredients are mixed together in a large industrial mixer.  When the dough is done being mixed, the dough is compressed into equal sized squares and dropped into baking pie sheets.  Here, they move along the process and the dough squares are pressed down on the pie sheets to form the bottom crust layer.

The manufacturing processes of frozen pies are a delicate procedure. Temperature control of the equipment and the product is important to producing a flavorful, flakey, and scrumptious pie crust. So what will it be?  One slice or the entire pie?  Ice cream or whipped cream? Next time you are enjoying a piece of pie, be sure to appreciate the process it takes to produce such a delicate indulgence!

Prevent Summer Overheating with Pfannenberg Enclosure Cooling Solutions


Preventing enclosure overheating in the summer can be a challenge for many factories, where temperatures can rise fast during hot days! The high summer temperatures are often the cause of overheating of electrical components located inside the enclosures reducing their lifespan, while also contributing to downtime and repairs.

When this happens, the user often makes the same mistake: open the door panel (and sometimes use a fan) to remove heat and cool the components.

In doing so, they allow dust, oils and surrounding debris to get inside the cabinet risking the damaging of sensitive electronic components.

To ensure that sensitive electronics maintain their rated life expectancy and that they function reliably, proper regulation of the enclosure climate is necessary.

Determine the Proper Enclosure Thermal Management

Electronics are typically most efficient in an environment where the humidity is low and the temperature is approximately 95°F. As the temperature in an enclosure rises it can have a lasting effect on the electronics. Tests have shown that an increase in temperature of as little as 18°F shortens the life expectancy of electrical components by more than 50%.

Enclosure Climate control prevents critical temperature fluctuations, avoids overheating and protects against the formation of condensate. It is essentially the backbone of your entire production process, prolonging the life of your electronics and protecting your investment.

To choose the best Thermal Management Solution you first need to understand your environment. Indeed, the environment in the electrical enclosure can be affected by weather conditions, solar radiation or other external temperature sources.

As an example, An Air to Water Heat Exchanger will be adapted to an enclosure placed in a factory that faces hot weather spikes or an extremely dirt or caustic environment compared to traditional industrial air conditioners.

Electronics sensitive to electromagnetic interference may need a shielded EMC Filterfan®. An enclosure located outdoors or in a humid environment may require hygrostats or thermostats and heaters to eliminate the formation of condensate, leading to corrosion and short circuiting.

Pfannenberg Sizing Software (PSS)

To determine the proper thermal management solution, Pfannenberg Engineers developed a powerful web-based Sizing Software to help you configure Filterfans™, cooling units, air/water heat exchangers, and heaters for electrical enclosures. The easy to use interface, works for both indoor and outdoor applications and helps you calculate the heat dissipation in a cabinet, component by component.

“We All Scream for Ice Cream” – Pfannenberg’s Thermal Management plays a key role in a favorite summer treat!


From the Farm to the Factory

When the trucks arrive at the factory, the milk and cream are pumped into storage silos and kept cool at 36°F until they are ready to begin the process.

Making the Ice Cream Mixture

The process begins by mixing ingredients and various flavors into a 1000-gallon stainless steel blender.  Heavy cream, liquid sugar cane, and condensed skim milk are the first foundational ingredients. After that, sometimes egg yolks and cocoa powder are incorporated depending on the desired flavoring. A natural stabilizer is mixed in to prevent various ice crystal formation or heat shock.  Blended for a total of about 6-8 minutes, it is then ready to be transferred and strained into a large tank.  This tank will store the mixture until it is ready to begin the pasteurization process.

Pasteurization & the Homogenizer

Pasteurization heats up the mix to kill harmful bacteria. The mixture flows through various plates. Hot water flows on one side of the plate and cold water (cold mix) flows on the other side of the plate. The heat from the hot water is transferred to the ice cream mix, heating this mix up to 180°F.

Right from there, the mixture enters the homogenizer.  Here the mix is exposed to high amounts of pressure so that the fat particles from the cream do not separate from the rest of the mix.  Then the heat from the ice cream mix is transferred to the cold water, cooling the ice cream mix down to 36°F.

The mix is then moved to a tank room.  This room is cooled down to 36°F degrees, where the mix will be stored for 4-8 hours which allows the ingredients to really form.  Next more flavorings are mixed in (such as vanilla, peppermint, purees, and other extracts).  Once the appropriate flavors are added it is then transported into the freezer.  The temperature has to be below freezing, most plants keep it at -40°F.

Freezing & Packaging

To further the process in making hard ice cream, it travels to the packaging area of the factory.  Here the soft serve ice cream is dispensed into various packaging containers and then delivered into the storing freezer before shipment. At this point the temperature of the mixture is around 22°F. For the mixture to reach a colder state it has to enter a spiral freezer where it travels around in a -60°F maintained temperature part of the plant.  When the ice cream leaves the spiral freezer it should be around -10°F. From there the ice cream cartons are stored into various freezing warehouses until they are shipped.


So what role does Pfannenberg play in this desired product?

Automation plays a critical role in the manufacturing of ice cream. Numerous electrical enclosures contain the critical electronics (VFDs and control components) to operate the machinery ranging from mixing to the final packaging. Even though these enclosures are found within a relatively cool environment, the temperature inside the cabinets needs to be maintained. Without proper enclosure cooling these electronics may overheat, bringing operations to a halt. Pfannenberg’s PWS Air to Water Heat Exchangers are ideal for cooling electrical components found in food and beverage processing facilities. The units can utilize existing cooled liquid while saving energy costs vs, traditional compressor based AC cooling units. Our cooling solutions make this cool summer treat possible.

Pfannenberg Products Assist in Making an American Staple Summer Treat


Hot dogs – a staple summer treat that brings back memories of family cookouts and baseball games. It is an American favorite summertime food! Hot dogs go through a series of complex processes that combine the ingredients into their delicious final form and Pfannenberg’s PWS Air to Water Heat Exchangers are perfect to keep things running.

Meat Processing

The first step into creating one of the most loved foods is the preparation of the meat.  The meat is cut into small pieces and is placed into a large mixer.  These mixers have chopping blades to further cut the meat into smaller sizes. Here the raw ingredients and flavorings are added.  All are mixed until the mixture is a smooth paste consistency. Processes like this can require large control panels to operate the system and Pfannenberg’s PWS Air/Water Heat Exchangers are ideal for cooling your electrical components. Pfannenberg’s Air/Water Heat Exchangers utilizes chilled water, that is readily available, and an internal fan to provide cool air to prevent critical electronics from overheating.

Linking

The paste is always going through inspections throughout the entire process. After inspection from the mixer – the mix is moved into a stuffer.  This machine will push the paste into tube casings.  The casings are twisted at measured sections to make equally sized hot dogs. There are various casings – natural or artificial. The shaping of the hot dogs we all know is now complete.

Smoking

After the stuffing and linking, the hot dogs are then moved to a smokehouse to cook under controlled conditions.  Manufacturers can control the temperature and the difference flavors that the smoking has on the hot dog by using difference smoke sources.  Average time it takes in this step is an hour.

Final Processing

Once the smoking is completed, the link casings are removed by an automatic peeler.  During this time, the hot dogs are sprayed with water to help bring down their temperature.  Then the hot dogs are then transported to be packaged. Before going into the final packaging, the hot dogs are inspected to make sure there are no foreign ingredients in the product.

Pfannenberg has experience with inspection and x-ray equipment. Pfannenberg was able to combine a Chiller and PWS Air to Water Heat Exchanger to cool the x-ray tubes as well as the electrical enclosure as one example.

The packaging machines can process thousands of hot dogs in an hour.  They are operating at very fast speeds and require proper thermal management cooling to keep their machines up-and-running. Once packaged, hot dogs are inspected again, freshness dates are added, and they are all boxed up to be transferred to the warehouse for refrigeration until they are shipped. The entire process from start to finish, only takes a few hours.

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


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.

How do I know if a cooling unit is the right product for my application?

  • If the ambient temperature is greater than the target internal temperature of the enclosure, active cooling is required.
  • If indoor NEMA Type 12 applications, NEMA Type 3R/4 outdoor applications and NEMA Type 4/4x stainless steel for washdown applications are required – closed loop cooling can maintain the NEMA Type rating of the cabinet.

Properly sizing a cooling unit

To properly size your cooling units you must know the required cooling capacity in Watts, mounting requirements (side, integrated or top mount) and the dimensions of the cooling unit and enclosure.

Utilizing performance curves to properly size cooling units:

> Pfannenberg utilizes the DIN standard 35/35 °C when rating our cooling units.

> Many other companies use 50/50 °C, which provides a higher, non-usable value. Customers should use their own application temperatures to determine the proper cooling capacity of the system.

 

 

 


Important information when utilizing cooling units:

  • The refrigeration capacity should exceed the dissipation loss from the installed components by approximately 10%.
  • The enclosure should be sealed to prevent the inflow of ambient air.
  • Use the door contact switch to impede operation with open doors and consequent excessive accumulation of condensation.
  • Use cooling units with maximum clearance between air inflow and air outflow to prevent poor circulation.
  • Make sure that the air inflow and air outflow in the external circuit is not hindered, preventing proper heat exchanging at the condenser.
  • When using top-mounted cooling units, make sure that components with their own fans do not expel the air directly into the cooling units cool air outflow.
  • Make sure unit is level.
  • Setting the temperature to the lowest setting is not the optimal solution due to the condensation issues. The value we have preset on the cooling unit is a sound compromise between cooling the inside of the enclosure and the accumulation of condensation.

In harsh environments involving high temperatures, wash-down requirements, heavy particulate matter or the presence of chemicals capable of damaging components (NEMA 4 or 12 environments), ambient air must be kept out of the enclosure. Pfannenberg Cooling Units seals out the ambient air, cooling and re-circulating clean, cool air throughout the enclosure.

Pfannenberg offers Critical Thermal Management Solutions for Maximum uptime and efficiency.

The Technology of Cooling Part 2: Cooling with Closed Loop Air to Air Heat Exchangers


Closed Loop Cooling and particularly Air to air heat exchangers are used when the complete separation between the enclosure and the environment is required and the internal enclosure temperature to be cooled can be higher than the ambient. The air to air units have a rating showing how much heat can be removed based on the difference in the ambient and the internal temperatures. This is traditionally rated on W/°C which is the watts of heat that the unit can remove per temperature difference in °C.

How do I know if an air to air heat exchanger is the right product for my application?

  • If the ambient temperature is lower than the desired temperature inside the enclosure.
  • If a total separation between ambient air and enclosure air is required.

Properly sizing an air to air heat exchanger

To properly size an air to air heat exchanger you must know the required cooling capacity in Watts, target temperature rise over ambient and the dimensions of the heat exchanger and enclosure.


Utilizing performance curves to properly size air/air heat exchangers:

> Pfannenberg utilizes watts of heat that the unit can remove per temperature difference in °C.

Customers should use their own application temperatures to determine the proper cooling capacity of the system.


PAI_drawing.jpg

Important information when utilizing air/air heat exchangers:

  • The max ambient is 35 °C (95 °F) and the max internal temperature that the system can take is 45 °C (113 °F).
  • Can be used when the temperature difference is 10 °C.
  • If you apply this temperature difference to the rating of the air to air unit you will get the total amount of heat that can be removed.
  • A unit rated 100 W/°C could remove 1000 Watts (100 x 10) of heat under these conditions.

Closed Loop Cooling with air to air heat exchangers is the most efficient cooling solution as cooling with ambient air is the most economical type of cooling!

Pfannenberg εCOOL Air to air Heat Exchangers feature an energy efficient, minimal maintenance design. Installation and maintenance of these units requires much less time compared to other closed loop Thermal Management solutions.
