Protection for critical infrastructure

Perfect protection for critical infrastructures

Outdoor enclosure solutions for the water industry

Water catchment and treatment, waste disposal and the circular economy are topics of global relevance. If downtimes are to be avoided, the electrical equipment must be afforded first-class protection – especially in outdoor environments.

Digitalisation has established the prerequisites for intelligent water management, and that in turn calls for numerous outdoor measuring and control systems, for example:

  • for flow rate measurements
  • for analysis of the water quality
  • for the treatment of waste water with ozone

At Rittal, you will quickly identify a suitable combination of enclosure and climate control system for your specific needs – all based on standard products.

As operational readiness is a matter of system-relevant importance, Rittal places a particular focus on the high durability of all components. Selection of the most suitable material, top quality and flawless manufacturing ensure that your equipment is protected reliably and permanently against all external influences.

For all Rittal solutions, special importance is attached to the resistance to aggressive chemicals such as chlorine, because appropriate corrosion protection is the only way to guarantee a long service life.

Outdoor Advanced

Many outdoor applications in water management, waste disposal and the circular economy can be assigned to installation environment 3. A foundation acts as a barrier to dampness from below and lends the necessary stability to withstand high winds. An inclined roof, for example, protects enclosures against rain, standing water and other contamination from above.
