There are a couple of different ways of implementing containment systems. The most frequently utilized are Hot Aisle Containment and Cold Aisle Containment. Each has its advantages and the optimum solution depends on the physical characteristics of your current facility and the nature of the equipment you are protecting.
CAC (Cold Aisle Containment) enhancement system, show a 60% gain in cabinet cooling and energy efficiency. This dramatic improvement is achieved by the simple and highly cost-effective containment of cold aisles, with attendant improvement in cold airflow management.
The CAC system is an easy-fit, modular addition to any existing mix of data center cabinet runs. Our research engineers have determined that the simple expedient of containing and therefore better managing and maximizing existing CRAC system and cold aisle air throughput, gives dramatic gains from the existing cooling and energy systems. The level of improvement depending on the data centers existing operation.
By simply preventing the common and increasingly critical problem of short-circuited hot airflow returning directly back into the cold aisle, significant cooling and energy efficiencies are achieved. Our CAC program, offers a universal mix of fittings to readily provide a fully contained, attractive cold aisle solution, which includes; cold-aisle transparent top covers; double-door end of aisle, hinged/sliding options; a range of compensation panels to accommodate a varied mix of cabinet heights and Air Blocking Curtains.
