Rittal revises IT enclosure cooling system for industrial applications
09 January 2013
Rittal's new industrial Liquid Cooling Package (LCP) is essentially a large air/water heat exchanger that has a chassis formed from the TS 8 frame. The Industrial LCP may be bayed directly adjacent to enclosures that require significant cooling.
A technology that has its origins in high density server rack cooling in the IT sector, this product has been revised for industrial applications. The LCP offers a compact footprint, having a width of only 300mm, yet still packs quite a punch, providing an impressive cooling output of 10kW.
Utilising water as the cooling medium has the advantage that heat may be transported away from its source using a simple pipework system. This results in the removal of heat dissipated by equipment housed in an enclosure without raising the temperature of the surrounding air.
Rittal’s TopTherm chiller is the perfect partner for the new Industrial LCP, which may be used to supply chilled water to the LCP and also has a chassis manufactured from the TS 8 frame. Hence, both units may be bayed directly to the enclosures that require cooling, resulting in a fully integrated, package.
