November 2012 - CPI’s Aisle Containment Solutions Introduce New Levels of Flexibility and Efficiency

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., November, 2012—Known globally for solving complex IT infrastructure problems with customized solutions, Chatsworth Products, Inc. (CPI) introduces its new Frame Supported Hot Aisle Containment (HAC) Solution and Aisle Containment Services as the latest step toward personalizing virtually any airflow containment strategy.

AISLE CONTAINMENTThe new Frame Supported HAC Solution by CPI features an exhaust duct that is used over a contained hot aisle as part of a closed hot air return. By supporting the duct with an independent frame that allows a mix of different cabinets to be installed within the row, this system is ideal for colocation facilities and large scale data centers that support cabinet-level equipment installation and changes. This aisle containment solution also integrates with perimeter cooling, provides immediate improved cooling efficiency and is compatible with economization methods.

"The Frame Supported HAC will expand our capabilities to assist more data centers in implementing airflow isolation measures that increase operating efficiencies, increase equipment densities and open up opportunities for economization," said Sam Rodriguez, CPI Product Manager of Cabinet and Thermal Management Systems.

Developed for large scale cabinet deployments that require flexibility and performance, Frame Supported HAC was specifically designed to deploy airflow isolation to a broad range of cabinet sizes and manufacturers.

"The unique design is compatible with cabinets from most manufacturers and will support cabinet heights from 42 to 52 rack mount units," said Rodriguez. "CPI focused on sealing performance and ease of use. CPI's Frame Supported HAC also offers a longer row length up to 20 feet (6 meters) between posts, has built-in leveling adjustments in the frame, and multiple gaskets to minimize leakage."

This expansion of CPI's broad Aisle Containment offering, which also includes Cabinet Supported Solutions for Hot and Cold Aisle Containment, is a continuation of the employee-owned company's mission to help data centers reduce operating costs through quality engineering, flexibility and holistic thermal solutions. While each approach is unique and easily adaptable to varying facility needs, all three of CPI's aisle containment solutions have been engineered to:

  • Eliminate hot spots
  • Support 4x higher heat and power densities
  • Effectively utilize 100% of supplied air
  • Improve CRAC unit efficiency
  • Allow increased room temperature and higher set-points on cooling equipment for more "free cooling" hours

To ensure that each Aisle Containment Solution is optimized to its fullest potential, CPI recently added Aisle Containment Services in the form of a Pre-Installation Site Survey and On-Site Installation Supervision Support. Designed to help customers choose the ideal containment solution for their site and ensure that the initial installation has been assembled for optimal performance, these services are an invaluable partner for any aisle containment solution.
