Cooling in the field

Hybricool IP65 rated water coolersHybricool IP65-rated water coolers combine active and passive cooling technologies to let users configure field protection cabinets and shelters with reliable cooling to protecting remote and mission-critical control and instrumentation equipment. The two cooling technologies cooperate to handle extreme climatic conditions or maintain continued operation in the event of one system failing. If electrical power fails completely, the passive cooling system continues to operate indefinitely, maintaining low shelter temperatures until maintenance work can be performed. Hybricool water coolers are housed in tough, glass-reinforced polyvester (GRP) enclosures, which are suitable for harsh environmental conditions.
