Pfannenberg, a leading global manufacturer of thermal management technologies, highlights Filterfans® filter mats, uniquely efficient filter media for electrical enclosure filter fans. These unique Pfannenberg fluted filter mats extend service life by 300% vs. traditional filter media.

With over 60 years of filter fan experience, Pfannenberg reengineered the filter mat for 4th generation Filterfans® to optimize airflow and reliability. Filterfans 4.0™ spin optimized fins and rotor blades to maximize airflow with minimal energy consumption. As a result, the system employs high-performance louvers that expand surface area on filter mats.

Featuring an innovative fluted design, these filter mats enable increased airflow efficiency without compromising durability. While easily installed in seconds with only a single hand, Filterfans® filter mats require less frequent replacement—extending service life by 300%. This efficient and capable design earns Filterfans® NEMA Type 12 certification.

In all, Filterfans 4.0™ combine 11 field-proven patented features for an industry-leading cooling solution. Options include NEMA Type 3R/4/4X / IPx6 Washdown Rainhoods, UV Protected Plastic for use in direct sunlight, EMC shielding to attenuate RF signals and exhausting fans for custom applications.

For dirty, dusty, gaseous, humid, or chemically-contaminated environments that require a closed loop system to protect electronics, Pfannenberg’s PKS Series Air to Air Heat Exchangers provide additional protection. These units are ideal for cooling industrial electrical and IT components, sensors and drives on outdoor systems, and food and beverage industry enclosures. Low maintenance and easy to install, PKS Series Air to Air Heat Exchangers feature new Pfannenberg Kinetic System™ air-to-air technology, taking advantage of a cooler ambient environment to operate with approximately 1/3 of the power required by a traditional industrial AC unit for greater energy efficiency and reduced operating expense.
