Sustainability that works

Minimizing CO₂ emissions – the Blue e+ way

We deliver the world's most efficient climate control solutions and smart service concepts to help reduce the carbon footprint of your machines and systems. On average, a Blue e+ cooling unit saves 1 ton of carbon per year, equivalent to the amount absorbed by a beech tree over 80 years. The Blue e+ series of products has a solution for every application and requirement.

Game-changing technology

Sustainability at every level

This unique hybrid technology boasts average energy savings of 75% over conventional systems. By significantly reducing your carbon footprint, you are one step closer to becoming climate-neutral. With a longer service life for installed components, global usability, and digital service offerings, it helps ensure sustainability at every level.

Blue e+ for maximum efficiency

How do we define efficiency? Less is more. Blue e+ cooling units are designed to minimize costs and protect the environment.

Revolutionary energy efficiency with innovative hybrid technology.

  • Two parallel cooling circuits operating independently or in tandem, depending on the temperature difference.
  • Passive climate control: Heat pipe cooling circuit (dissipates heat from the enclosure as soon as the ambient temperature drops below the setpoint).
  • Active climate control: Compressor cooling circuit with speed-controlled components for targeted cooling.

Inverter control provides a constant temperature inside the enclosure to help ensure the service life of the components.

This technology has been proven to achieve average energy savings of 75%.

One for all

  • Global usability with country-specific licences and data
  • Flexible use across a broad temperature range from -4° F to 140° F (-30° F to 140° F for outdoor cooling units)
  • Visualize operating states and system/alarm messages with the Smart Service Portal*

Reliability means sustainability

Reliability is key when it comes to plant operation. Blue e+ cooling units offer maximum reliability, reduced maintenance, and rapid usability.

  • The high protection category of IP 55 / IP 56 for outdoor cooling units provides added peace of mind
  • More reliable, with integral condensate evaporation as standard from 0.3 kW
  • Faster, thanks to short delivery times and dependable worldwide availability of products and spares. Projects are supported by a vast network of global distribution and modification centers that include five locations across the U.S.A for local support.
  • More efficient servicing at a reduced cost, due to predictive maintenance

Blue e+ is designed to make your work as easy as possible

Focus on what's truly important – with effortless planning, operation and assembly

  • Planning is a breeze, due to uniform square mounting cut-outs for all installation types (external mounting, partial internal mounting (from 1.6 kW) and full internal mounting)
  • Easy access for servicing, maintenance, and replacement of components helps to minimize maintenance work.
  • Smart Service concept for more targeted maintenance and easier troubleshooting*.
  • Smart interfaces for ease of operation: Near Field Communication (NFC) interface for the Scan & Service app, USB connection for software updates and services, display (up to 1 kW) or touch display (from 1.6 kW), IoT interface for remote monitoring
