Achieving an optimum degree of airflow containment cannot be reached through a one-size-fits-all solution. The true measurement of any containment solution is dependent upon using a Hot Aisle, Cold Aisle or Cabinet Containment strategy that has been optimized for airflow, static pressure, leakage, bypass air and temperature variance.
Detailed in a new whitepaper from Chatsworth Products (CPI), “How Much Containment is Enough?” explains the following concepts and solutions for airflow containment:
• How minimal leakage and inlet temperature variations will maximize access to free cooling hours, efficiency of the chiller system and return air temperatures
• Comparison strategies for fire suppression, work environment temperatures, retrofits, raised floors, thermal ride-through and more
• Quick ROI on containment through high cooling unit efficiencies and increased partial economization hours
• Containment solutions for equipment with sub-optimized airflow paths, such as side-to-side, front-to-side, side-to-rear, side-to-front and rear-to-front
