Nanotechnology improves cabinet cooler
Rittal's Toptherm Plus enclosure cooling units now benefit from an innovative Rinano treatment on the condenser coil. Rinano is a thin coating that repels oil and dust particles and therefore helps to keep the coils clean.
The performance of a cooling system is liable to deteriorate by between 30-50 per cent as the cooling fins become dirty over extended periods.
However, Rinano, which comprises ceramic nanoparticles, adheres firmly to the surface of the condenser, with the nanoparticles aligning themselves during application.
Connecting particles migrate to the substrate, and anti-adhesion components align themselves with the air, resulting in an ultra-thin glass-like coating that seals the pores. This permanent seal acts as a barrier against foreign bodies, which are then unable to adhere to the coating, reducing the levels of dirt accumulated significantly.
