KOOLTRONIC, INC., of Pennington, NJ, the leading manufacturer of
air conditioners, heat exchangers, fans and blowers for electronic enclosures,
is making its New Jersey operation an example of environmentally-friendly industrial
practices. These efforts include converting our Corporate Headquarters and manufacturing
plant to solar power, using ozone-friendly refrigerants
and recycling to help protect the environment.
Kooltronic has always enjoyed a proud tradition of engineering
and producing the highest quality products available while maintaining environmentally-friendly
industrial practices. As an example of this commitment, Kooltronic is currently
powered by over 2,600 solar energy panels installed on the roof of their facility
during the summer of 2006. At the time of construction this solar power system was
among the largest commercial installations in New Jersey. Solar power needs no fuel
and produces no waste or pollution. This independence from non-renewable energy
sources is an example of Kooltronic's dedication to the environment, and evidence
that they are looking with an eye to the future.
Prudent foresight on the part of government and industry
has led to laws and refrigerants that will help reverse the damage to the ozone
layer; and by international treaty, as of 2015, the manufacturing of air
conditioning equipment with R-22 refrigerant has become outlawed. Kooltronic was
among the first manufacturers in the industryt use ozone-friendly R-134A
refrigerant in its air conditioners. Since 1992, Kooltronic has used R-134A in
all of its air conditioners for which R-134A compatible compressors are
commercially available. Kooltronic also uses R-410A refrigerant for compatible
Recycling Across the Spectrum
Kooltronic recycles office paper, soda bottles and cans, as well
as scrap metal left over from the manufacturing process. Reducing waste through
these efforts helps the environment by conserving resources and energy. Kooltronic
has made recycling a routine activity in both manufacturing and administrative activities.
As a "green" step, Kooltronic utilizes a closed, recycling powder-painting
system that captures and reuses particulates from the powder-painting process, preventing
their release into the environment. Powder coating processes are universally accepted
and specified as the Best Available Control Technology (BACT) to reduce air pollution
primarily because no VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) emissions are released into
the atmosphere. Since no solvents are used as any part of the powder paint process,
concerns about ground water, air quality or hazardous waste are eliminated.
In the 60th year of service to its customers, Kooltronic is the leading manufacturer
of air conditioners, heat exchangers, fans and blowers designed specifically to
cool the interior of enclosures containing heat sensitive electrical/electronic
components. The company has a complete manufacturing facility and sales office at
its headquarters in Pennington, NJ.
Except where noted,
Kooltronic products are in compliance with European Economic Union (EEU) Reduction
of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive 2002/95/EC, except for the exemptions listed
under the RoHS Directive.
