Rittal, the leading global enclosure and climate controls specialists, recently launched its new generation of cooling units.
Key to the efficiency of the Blue e+ is Rittal’s patented hybrid system.
“The hybrid system increases energy efficiency significantly,” says Steffen Wagner, Rittal’s Head of Climate Control Product Management.
“It uses a clever combination of a compressor cooling device and a heat pipe to take maximum advantage of passive cooling. The compressor only kicks in when passive cooling becomes insufficient to meet demand,” he adds.
Blue e+ units are six times more efficient than conventional cooling units at a part-load of 15 per cent in heat-pipe mode. At a part-load of65 per cent, in hybrid mode, with both the compressor cooling device and heat pipe in operation, Blue e+ is four times more efficient than a conventional unit.
