The new Industrial Liquid Cooling Package (LCP) from Rittal is now available. 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 and used to cool installed equipment that dissipates a large amount of heat.
A technology that has its origins in high-density server rack cooling in the IT sector, this product has been revised so that it is suited to industrial applications. Rittal’s Industrial LCP has a compact footprint, having a width of only 300mm, yet still provides a 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 can partner the new Industrial LCP to supply it with chilled water, 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, packaged system.
For those applications that demand a level of cooling in excess of that provided by conventional cooling units or air/water heat exchangers, the Industrial LCP comes as a welcome addition to the range of Rittal climate control systems. To find out more, please visit www.rittal.co.uk/.
