PKS heat exchangers use kinetic cooling to consume less energy
The devices reportedly use one-third as much power as traditional industrial AC units.

Pfannenberg’s new PKS-series air-to-air heat exchangers use kinetic cooling technology to reduce energy consumption and maintenance compared to conventional enclosure cooling units.
While industrial air-conditioner (AC) units are the typical choice for cooling sealed electrical enclosures, PKS heat exchangers take advantage of a cooler ambient environment for indoor, outdoor, remote and washdown applications where closed-loop cooling is required, protecting sensitive electronic components against humidity, gas and dust. Five configurations are available, ranging from 22 to 180 W per C.
“The PKS series consumes approximately one-third of the power compared to a traditional industrial AC unit,” says James Wong, product manager. “It is also compact in size, offering greater cooling capacity per density (CCPD).”
