Electronics thermal management firm SprayCool acquired by Parker Hannifin to boost spray cooling expertise

LIBERTY LAKE, Wash.-Aerospace and defense motion and control technologies specialist Parker Hannifin Corp. in Cleveland has acquired SprayCool Inc. in Liberty Lake, Wash., a pioneer of spray liquid cooling for thermal management in military and commercial aviation electronics systems.

Terms of the purchase have not been disclosed. Parker and SprayCool are longtime competitors in the computer cooling business involving spray liquid cooled systems. Electronics cooling is a crucial issue in modern embedded computing to control operating temperatures of high-performance embedded processors. SprayCool operations will become part of the Parker Hannifin Aerospace segment in Irvine, Calif.

The acquisition of SprayCool by Parker Aerospace will not affect SprayCool's approximately 40 employees at the former SprayCool Liberty Lake facility near Spokane, Wash.

SprayCool began operations in the late 1980s as Isothermal Systems Research (ISR), which changed its name to SprayCool in 2006 to better represent the company's technological expertise. SprayCool has developed enclosed cooling and thermal-management systems for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and for the U.S. military U-2 high-altitude reconnaissance aircraft.

SprayCool is joining the Parker Aerospace gas turbine fuel systems segment with locations in Mentor, Ohio; Clyde, N.Y.; Glendale, Ariz.; Moncks Corner, S.C.; and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
