Happy National Manufacturing Day


Today October 3, 2014 marks National Manufacturing day. This is a day for manufacturers to support young people pursuing careers in manufacturing and engineering. This past week Pfannenberg exhibited at WEFTEC which is a show that focuses on products and services targeting the Water Industry. As I walked the mile long exhibit floor it was amazing to see the number of manufacturers exhibiting innovative products that were developed and manufactured here in the USA. My hope is that here in America we continue this innovation and manufacturing traditions. As manufacturers we have to inspire young people and make them aware of the types of jobs that are available in science, math, technology and engineering.

Pfannenberg is proud to support an organization that promotes this initiative locally, Dream It Do It WNY. Dream It Do ItWNY, works with local manufacturers to open their plant doors to showcase their exciting and modern manufacturing plants and inform participants of the many excellent careers that are available in manufacturing. Their message is simple: “Whatever energizes young people — be it cars or computers, music or movies, outdoors or outer space — they can find a great career doing it in today’s manufacturing.”

Safest Way to Cool with Water



Electronics Cooling with an Air to Water Heat Exchanger

Water is the most efficient form of heat removal. Using an air to water heat exchanger allows you to safely cool your electronics using water, while also keeping external contaminants from entering your enclosure. Air to water heat exchangers also offer the advantage of being low maintenance while using significantly less energy than traditional methods.


Advantages of Pfannenberg’s Air to Water Heat Exchangers:

How do we safely cool with water?

#1: Bulkhead fitting for condensate drain providing superior ingress protection.
#2: Solenoid valve – controls liquid flow for capacity control and energy conservation.
#3: Color-coded water lines easily identify water supply & return lines.
#4: Air flow path designed to prevent condensate water from entering the enclosure.
#5: Internal design guarantees  full separation of water lines from airflow paths.
#6: Electronic thermostat for more accurate control of temperatures. Manual purge feature eases winterization.
#7: One-piece cover with sloped top for better protection of internal components and easy cleaning in wash-down applications (not pictured).


CONCLUSION:

Water has been used for years around sensitive electronics.  There’s no reason to be afraid of using water to cool your electronics. This is a great option to consider when your looking for safe and efficient solution to manage your cooling.
