Cooling Option for Electrical Enclosures


Introducing a new way to cool electrical enclosures. Pfannenberg’s PKS Series Air to Air Heat Exchangers use a next generation cooling technology (Pfannenberg Kinetic System) that out-performs conventional heat exchangers.

Industrial air conditioner cooling units are typically the go to solution for cooling sealed enclosures. What many people fail to consider is that a cooler ambient environment could be used to help cool your warmer electrical enclosure. This new air to air technology takes advantage of a cooler ambient environment especially in harsh (dusty, oily, dirty) conditions when closed-loop cooling is required. This new technology offers considerable saving compared to a traditional AC unit. “The PKS Series Air to Air Heat Exchanger consumes approximately 1/3 of the power compared to a traditional Industrial AC unit. It is also compact in size offering best in class Cooling Capacity Per Density (CCPD).” says James Wong, Product Manager for Pfannenberg USA.

This is a perfect solution for those looking to reduce the energy, maintenance and footprint associated with traditional enclosure cooling units. Designed for indoor, outdoor, remote and washdown applications that require a closed loop system to protect electronics. The PKS Series Air to Air Heat Exchangers are available immediately in 5 configurations; 22, 45, 64, 100, 150 and 180 Watts per degrees °C.
