ACT Acquires Parker Hannifin’s Precision Cooling Business

Lancaster, PA January 14, 2019 – Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (“ACT”), a premier thermal management solutions company, announced today that it has completed the acquisition of Parker Hannifin Corporation’s Precision Cooling Business (“PCB”), a leading supplier of Pumped Two Phase Cooling products for power electronics applications.

“Pumped Two Phase Cooling is a growing technology area for ACT,” said Dr. Jon Zuo, President and Chief Technical Officer of ACT. “Combining PCB’s position in the power electronics industry and ACT’s strength in the defense and aerospace markets will offer our customers more design options and enhanced product reliability.”

Following the completion of the acquisition, all the PCB assets were transferred to ACT’s Lancaster, Pennsylvania facility and integrated into its Industrial Products Group.

“ACT and Parker are working closely to ensure a smooth transition for our customers and suppliers,” said John Hartenstine, Vice President of Operations and Quality Assurance at ACT. “We are excited to start shipping products in the coming weeks.”

About Pumped Two Phase Cooling Technology

Pumped Two Phase Cooling, also known as Pumped Evaporative Cooling, is an active cooling technology that utilizes the latent energy associated with the boiling of a working fluid to efficiently remove large amounts of waste heat. Compared with single-phase cooling, Pumped Two Phase Cooling enables lower flow rate, reduction in system size, reduction in pumping power, higher heat flux (a measure of heat density) removal capability, more uniform temperature across the heat source surface, and practical use of dielectric working fluids such as refrigerants.
