Hygienic climate control

12 September 2016

With its new, hygienic design, air/water heat exchangers, Rittal is offering a standardised solution for efficient enclosure climate control in applications where hygiene is critical. 

Thanks to itsIP69K protection category, the unit is suitable for use in the food sector where high-pressure cleaning systems are often used.

The latest addition to Rittal’s enclosure climate control range is an air/water heat exchanger specifically for use in this type of environment.

The wall-mounted heat exchanger has a number of critical features, including a roof pitch of 30 degreees, which makes it impossible for objects to be placed on top of it. The pitch means liquids quickly run off the top.  Furthermore, the external gasket is made of silicone and meets the FDA 21 CFR 177.2600 guideline, preventing contamination between the housing of the air/water heat exchanger and the enclosure itself. 

The heat exchanger features a housing made of stainless steel which is brushed on the outside and has a surface roughness under 0.8 µm, making it easy to clean. The housing is also rated as IP69K to withstand high-pressure cleaners and daily cleaning with a steam cleaner. 

They can be installed as wall-mounted units on the side, rear panel, or door of an enclosure. Two versions of the unit are available, offering the option of cooling outputs of either 700 watts or 1,300 watts.
