Chillers for X-Ray Machines – A Food & Beverage Success Story

With the next round of Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) updated regulations taking into effect September, food processing companies are scurrying to make sure their facilities are up to code. The newest set of updates will support efforts into the quick responses to food/beverage related emergencies (contamination, expired products, recalls, and foreign materials). The new amendments also require […]

The Technology of Cooling Part 4: Closed Loop Liquid Cooling Solutions

Liquid Cooling Solutions like Air to Water Heat Exchangers or Chillers are especially well adapted to hot, dirty environments, where it provides a method of removing the heat from the machine and not contributing additional heat back into the environment. 1. Air to Water Heat Exchangers Pfannenberg Air to Water Heat Exchangers use a supplied water source to remove […]

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 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 […]
