Rittal TopTherm Wall Mounted NEMA 4X Air Conditioner with Basic Controller - 1708 BTU, 115 V, 50/60 Hz; Dimensions: 24.41H x 11.22W x 11.73D.

Urbana, OH– Rittal Corp ., in response to the market demand for UL Type 4X Stainless Steel Air Conditioners, began producing 115V, 230V and 400/460 V 3-phase units at its Urbana, Ohio facility at the end of 2008. The decision to start production in the US has greatly improved availability and reduced costs for customers by 10%, company says.
These TopTherm PLUS air conditioners range in cooling capacity from 2,083 to 10,400 BTU’s and all of them employ Rittal’s RiNano coating on the condenser coils to repel dirt, oil and other contaminants for increased performance and longer maintenance intervals. Protecting the coils in this way also drastically improves efficiency and reduces carbon emissions by up to 2,000 lb per unit, per year. All but the smallest units have built-in condensate evaporators, which eliminate the need for collection bottles, and can be purchased with an optional comfort controller for enhanced security and monitoring capabilities, company says.
Rittal says its UL Type 4X Stainless Steel Air Conditioners are ideal for harsh environments and processing industries where hygiene, frequent washdowns and/or corrosion resistance are operational realities.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
