Rittal GmbH & Co. KG from Herborn, Germany, is one of the world’s leading suppliers of enclosures, power distribution and climate control technology and IT infrastructures including software and service. The company's system solutions are used in all fields of industry, mechanical and plant engineering and the ICT sector. Rittal’s completely new Blue e+ generation of cooling units represents a quantum leap in cost-effectiveness. Besides their significantly superior energy efficiency compared to existing cooling solutions, the Blue e+ devices premiering at HANNOVER MESSE 2016 are impressively flexible, safe and easy to operate.
Estimates suggest that, in Europe alone, around two million cooling units for enclosures pump out approximately four millions metric tons of CO2 each year. "Rittal uses a brand-new, patented innovative hybrid process in its new Blue e+ generation of cooling units in order to significantly boost energy efficiency," says Steffen Wagner, Director Product Management Climate Control at Rittal. This process combines a heat pipe for passive cooling with a compressor that only kicks in when the extra boost is needed. A key factor in achieving this immensely superior efficiency is the way the hybrid operation has been optimized for energy efficiency in partial-load operation. Wagner says: "Initial tests show that the high efficiency of the new cooling units cuts energy consumption by up to 75 percent."
