Enclosure specialist Rittal is offering a free on-site inspection survey to users of its cooling technology to ensure that their production and process critical equipment is being adequately protected.
Rittal says that the offer, which is only available for a limited period, extends to any business with climate control installations, ranging from top therm, roof mounted fans, to Blue e or Blue e+ cooling units, all of which manage the temperature inside their enclosures. And users do not have to have previously registered with the company for their cooling units to qualify.
Excessive temperature or overheating in an electrical enclosure means that enclosure cooling is very important. Unplanned interruptions to production due to tripping or failing control components are costly and excessive temperature affects the correct operation and service life of electrical equipment.
High temperatures that lead to tripping or failing control components are avoidable and Rittal believes that 80% of control component failures may be addressed with a suitable cooling solution. Marketing director Simon Kelemen explained: “The costs of downtime, loss of production and system shut-down due to equipment running over temperature can easily exceed £10,000 per hour. I don’t know any businesses that would be happy to right that off, particularly as it’s entirely avoidable.”
For businesses with Rittal enclosure cooling equipment installed the process will involve an engineer conducting a review which will provide confirmation as to the condition of the devices, an assessment of their cleanliness, function and serviceability and an asset list documenting status of each enclosure. A quotation based on the most appropriate solution can then be prepared if required. The review will also provide on-going service suggestions and offers, tailored to the site itself.
