Pentair Technical Products McLean brand SPECTRACOOL Indoor and Outdoor Air Conditioners deliver vital cooling to sensitive electronics within enclosures. Designed to meet a broad range of application requirements, the air conditioners now feature a dust-resistant treated coil, supporting filter-less operation in most environments. SPECTRACOOL Air Conditioners provide a broad range of cooling capacities, power input and mounting options.
The filter-less option reduces clogging—which can lead to extremely costly and time-consuming system failures. This design additionally saves labor and money typically required for filter replacements. SPECTRACOOL Air Conditioners also feature rotary compressors, which are more energy efficient than reciprocating compressors and allow quick re-start under pressure without causing damage. Plus, the air conditioners use R134A earth-friendly refrigerant to lower their environmental impact.
Dual impellers—which pull air into the front of the unit and direct the air upwards in a 90-degree angle for the most direct air path—provide redundancy on the condenser side. An integrated active condensate evaporator provides a method of removing condensation without the need for a drain tube, and a thermal expansion valve can increase or decrease the refrigerant flow according to load changes on the evaporator.
SPECTRACOOL Indoor and Outdoor Air Conditioners feature a modern, attractive all-metal exterior cover with minimal use of visible fasteners. The cover is easily removable in one piece for repainting at the customer’s location. An outdoor package enclosure heater option provides the ability to operate in temperatures as low as -40 degrees Celsius, and a reliable mechanical thermostat on the enclosure side features a digital display for visual performance monitoring. Integrated EZ mount tabs facilitate easy installation, allowing units to be rested on the enclosure cutout during installation. Units offer surface mounting and can be specially ordered for recessed mount.
Features that make SPECTRACOOL Indoor and Outdoor Air Conditioners particularly effective and easy-to-use include:
- Provide 4,000, 6,000, 8,000, 12,000 and 20,000 BTUs/Hr. (1,172, 1,758, 2,300, 3,500 and 5,900 W) of cooling
- Include models for 115, 230 and 400/460 3-phase AC volt power input

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
