Enclosure Cooling for Commercial Bakeries? Easy As Pie!

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.

 

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.

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 Exchangers utilize 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!

Liquid Cooling Solutions, the Best Choice for Complete Plant-wide Machine Cooling

When it comes to Thermal Management, cooling each machinery or electrical cabinet separately is usually the solution chosen by most of the industries. However, this leave a valuable optimization potential untapped.

Maximum efficiency cooling for a whole system can be achieved with a cooling system solution consisting of air to water heat exchangers and water-based chillers. These ‘Liquid Solutions’ cool the complete assembly and offer significant benefits compared to traditional approaches such as cooling with ambient air.

How does it work?

A closed loop cooling or semi open system is used to provide cooling to the entire plant assembly. These might be electrical enclosures, processes or individual machine parts such as spindles, motors or hydraulic equipment.

Liquid Cooling Solutions

In a closed-loop system, electrical enclosures or assemblies are cooled with cold water at a specified inlet temperature which is pumped through a pipe system. Flowing through the electrical enclosures or assemblies, the water is warmer when it returns to the chiller. This creates a temperature delta which the chiller equalizes by cooling the water from the outlet temperature down to the inlet temperature.

The process chiller system feeds cold water into the application inside the factory hall or outdoors and the constant flow temperature significantly improves machine availability and machining accuracy. There is no other cooling media being as efficient as water cooling.

The best Liquid Cooling Solution: Combined Chillers and Air to Water Heat Exchangers

The combination of application-specific process chillers with air to water heat exchangers is particularly suitable for applications in which heat must not be dissipated in the immediate environment, where the ambient air is too aggressive to allow the use of traditional enclosure cooling units, where high-level protection is required (up to IP 65) or where the cooling devices must be maintenance-free.

The air to water heat exchanges are all cut-out-compatible and fit in the housing of all available electrical enclosures. This means that machine and plant manufacturers, end users and distributors benefit from higher flexibility, and save costs on warehousing and servicing.

The advantage of an intelligent system solution with application-specific chillers and air to water heat exchangers is that the dissipated heat can be moved directly from the factory shop floor via air channels or an outside chiller system. It also offers very high reliability and problem-free operation as all the components of the system are chosen to work together perfectly. Low maintenance, cut-out-compatibility and energy efficiency optimize energy consumption and keep operating costs to a minimum. The integrated concept and numerous options allow the system to be adapted to almost any application, even with changing conditions.

Application-specific configuration

EB 2.0 Group

Pfannenberg’s experts work with their customers to develop application-specific chiller systems. To achieve exactly the right configuration, it is essential to:

  • First determine the heat load for the whole assembly.
  • The second step is to specify the type of cooling medium (ideally water), the target temperature and the flow quantity which the system must deliver in the actual application. This process should take into account how the heat is transmitted to the cooling medium and the type of refrigerant necessary to operate the refrigerant circuit. The type of cooling medium and which chiller model is used depends on whether usable process water is available at the factory and if so, whether it is warm or cold (see overview of device variants).
  • An analysis of the environmental conditions prevailing where the chiller system is to be installed is also carried out. For example, there might be high temperatures and contaminated air indoors, while outdoors the temperature might fluctuate widely. Both of these factors can have an impact on the configuration of the chiller system, making accessories such as filter fans or crankcase heating necessary. Taking the temperature of the cooling medium at the inlet and the highest likely ambient temperature as a basis, Pfannenberg determines the best chiller model with the correct characteristic curves for the job.
  • The final stage in the application-specific configuration is to think about whether the selected standard version meets the other requirements of the application, such as performance data, control and regulation options, available space, certifications and color. It is then decided whether standard options are necessary or helpful and if so, which. With numerous available options available, the EB chillers meet the requirements of practically any application in industrial environments.

Pfannenberg offers installation-ready chiller systems with performance specifications ranging from 1 to 160 kW. The modular concept of the EB series allows users to select from up to 30 standard options. These include hydraulic bypass/relief valves, flow monitors, tank level monitors, air filters, air filter monitors, check valves, solenoid valves, single alarm display and UL certification.

Reliable Enclosure Cooling for Commercial Bakeries

Customer Requirement

Pfannenberg worked with a bakery end user to develop a cooling solution for their control cabinets.  Most of the OEM equipment installed in the bakery called for air conditioners to cool the drives. PLCs and additional electronics. Most times Cooling units can be a convenient and effective method for cooling electronics, except when located in dusty, humid areas within the plant.

These AC units failed regularly and had to be replaced. This was not a sustainable solution as the customer had constant issues with clogging coils and overheating panels.

Once a panel overheated they had to either: not operate the machine, or operate the cabinets with the doors open. This would let all the contaminants that were hurting the AC units into the cabinet, damaging the drives and other components.

The Pfannenberg Solution

To use the chilled Glycol that was already present for other machine processes to provide the cooled liquid source for our PWS Air to Water Heat Exchangers.

The solution included:

  • A reliable cooling solution designed for harsh environments
  • Reduced maintenance.  Once installed the units only have just one moving part, so regular maintenance is not necessary
  • Eliminating equipment failures, means greater uptime
  • Reduced energy costs with the PWS units
  • UL Tested NEMA Type 4/4X – washdown

Customer Benefits

Pfanneneberg’s PWS Series Air/Water Heat Exchanger was the precise solution for the problems our customer experienced. Incorporating Air/Water Heat Exchangers improved performance, reduced maintenance, was energy efficient, and prevented unplanned repairs.

Customized solution for Pharmaceutical Industry

Customer Requirement

A system integrator contacted Pfannenberg looking for a thermal management solution for their customer’s plant expansion project. The original design called for building a control panel with supported thermal management for a pharmaceutical application. The challenge was that this system would be located in a Class I, Div II environment, meaning the enclosure and components had to be explosion proof. To remain competitive in price, the system integrator needed an alternate solution to an explosion proof AC unit.

The Pfannenberg Solution

Our engineering team worked closely with the system integrator to develop a solution. The pharmaceutical plant did have water available (60°F at 7gpm flow) and there were no size constraints. Our solution was a customized PWS Air/Water Heat Exchanger.

The solution included:

  • Increasing the overall envelope of the panel
  • Mounting a customized PWS Air to Water Heat Exchanger directly inside the panel
  • The enclosure remained sterile and explosion proof because everything remained inside the cabinet

Customer Benefits

Installing the thermal management product inside the enclosure meant reduced installation and maintenance costs for the customer. In addition the end user also saves money as their available water is used to cool the enclosures. The Air to Water Heat Exchanger provides sustainable efficiency and reliable performance in harsh environments.

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.

Pfannenberg – Global Solutions and Support for OEMS


When it comes down to the final decision on whether or not to purchase new equipment for a plant, the decision tends to fall down to three major concerns:

  1. What preventative yearly/monthly/weekly/daily maintenance is required?
  2. Is it able to withstand the environment?
  3. How much time and money will it save?

For OEMS to be competitve and meet the needs of their end use customers, there are 3 main areas that are looked at when choosing the supporting components for their equipment.
