THE BENEFITS OF

AIRFLOW CONTROL &

COLD AISLE CONTAINMENT

Maintaining separation between the hot and cold aisles is a crucial aspect of best practice airflow design. The Mighty Mo

®

Air Control containment solution enhances the separation of the hot and cold aisles by containing and directing cold air where it is needed. This passive system improves airflow and optimizes thermal management without adding active cooling equipment, avoiding additional energy costs for cooling.

The Air Control system provides additional protection and performance benefits for your network. Containment extends the life of active equipment like switches and servers by reducing the heat load, boosting performance and preventing premature equipment burn-out. This separation of cold supply air and hot exhaust also increases the tonnage output and efficiency of

CRAC units.

Very simply, Mighty Mo Air

Control solutions provide more cooling with less energy by containing and directing the cold air to where it is needed.

MEASURED SUCCESS

CFD ANALYSIS

6

Flood Cooling is the most common approach today to data center cooling. This process fills the entire data center with air that meets the intake needs of all active equipment.

The problems associated with cooling the whole room to the same general temperature are that it creates: n

Lower than necessary set points n

Higher than necessary humidity set points n

Partial use of rack space, since the higher rack units are above recommended equipment temperatures n

Excessive fan use to create air movement throughout the room

These things all result in higher than necessary costs.

To demonstrate the benefits of concentrated cooling, Legrand |

Ortronics conducted a Computational

Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis on a typical data center to determine the energy savings impact of Mighty Mo

®

Air Control products, starting with the raised floor and ending with full containment.

BASELINE

DATA CENTER

The baseline data center is 9,000 square feet, with typical kW or heat load ranging from .5kW network racks to 6kW server racks. The baseline model features cabinets that are both parallel and perpendicular to the five operating CRAC units, with hot and cold aisles, as well as isolated equipment. There are some rows set up for cold aisle containment and some ancillary areas where flood cooling will be adequate.

Other common situations include an area without a raised floor, cabinets up against a wall or column and CRAC units that are not symmetrical.

The AC load was selected to represent what is typically found in legacy data centers. In this

image, the blue circles illustrate cold air flooding into the hot aisle, showing an oversupply of cold air.

However, the red circle points out where the cold aisle is receiving hot air, demonstrating that there is no clear separation between the hot and the cold.

Five of the cabinets are still showing intake temperatures in excess of 80 degrees; potentially damaging the equipment.

CONTAINED

DATA CENTER

Looking at the contained data center you can see that all of the supply air areas are well under 78 degrees and fall within the ASHRAE intake specifications. While the exhaust side still shows extreme temperatures, this is a desired result and will increase the CRAC units’ efficiency.

All active equipment has been entirely cold air contained, including isolated cabinets far from a CRAC unit. The Mighty Mo

®

Air Control cold aisle containment made it possible to shut off two CRAC units while still maintaining appropriate intake temperatures and increasing the efficiency and tonnage output of the remaining 3 CRAC units.

A combination of Mighty Mo aisle containment products was used:

n

Air Disrupters slowed the subfloor air to allow proper permeation through perforated tiles n

Air Plugs and Air Blanking Panels blocked holes between the hot and cold aisles, as well as between the subfloor and main room to prevent cold air leakage n

Air Curtains and Air Cap solidified the separation of the hot and cold aisle n

The Air Booth spot cooled isolated cabinets and racks

All active equipment intakes have been entirely cold air contained, making it possible to shut off two

CRAC units.

AIR CONTROL

SOLUTIONS

To improve data center cooling efficiency it is crucial to separate and contain cold air and provide hot air back to the cooling units.

CRAC unit efficiency is achieved when hot air is returned to the unit. Mighty Mo Air Control products significantly reduce cooling requirements by creating a physical separation between the cold and hot air. They provide a contained supply of cold air to equipment, dramatically reducing active equipment energy consumption. Mighty Mo Air

Control products can be used to reduce the amount of cold air lost through unoccupied areas of equipment in hot and cold aisle environments, as well as balance the underfloor pressure and reduce air leakage.

AIR PLUG & AIR DISRUPTER

Mighty Mo

Air Plug

Air Plugs are used to fill in cable openings in the raised floor or any gaps where airflow needs to be blocked. Air Plugs are soft, compressible and safe to use around all types of cable, including fiber optic cable.

They are made from Sandel ™ , a fireproof material. Sandel originates from sand, contains no asbestos and is non-combustible at any temperature. The Air Plugs are available in several sizes to cover most any opening and are easily installed by simply squeezing the plug and placing it in the opening to be filled. All plugs have a height of 5”.

Mighty Mo Air Disrupter

The Air Disrupter is a curtain designed to modify the air velocity under a raised floor. Low pressure areas above perforated tiles are often a result of air rushing past the tile opening at too great a speed.

By strategically placing the Mighty

Mo Air Disrupters under the raised floor, air velocity is greatly reduced and more air is allowed to permeate through the tiles, ensuring a consistent supply of cool air to each rack or cabinet.

The Mighty Mo Air Disrupters are made from the fireproof material Sandel.

AIR CURTAIN SYSTEM

12

The Air Curtain containment system includes hanging panels, sliding doors and swinging doors – all designed to eliminate the mixing of hot and cold airflow.

Hanging Vinyl Panels

Fire resistant vinyl panels hang from aluminum tracks mounted to the drop ceiling grid above the racks and cabinets. This curtain forms a barrier between the hot aisle and cold aisle. The aluminum tracks are connected to the ceiling grid by fusible links that release and drop to the floor when temperatures go above 135°F, ensuring that the fire sprinkler pattern is not interrupted. Normal fire suppression systems engage at 158°F.

The Hanging Vinyl Panel System is sold in kits that include all the necessary hangers, track and panels to cover your specific area.

The vinyl panels are the length of the aluminum track and overlap at the track seams. Each panel has two inches of additional width on each end to overlap and create one continuous partition.

The tracks are available in clear anodized aluminum.

To determine the size of the

Hanging Vinyl Panel System required you will need the following measurements: n

Linear feet – this is the length of aluminum track needed to create a rectangle around the aisle to be contained. Kits are available from 1’ to 6’ long and can be connected to one another for larger installations.

n

Drop down length (in inches) – this is the length of the vinyl panels from the aluminum track to the top of the racks and cabinets or floor. Available lengths are from 29” to 182” high.

Mighty Mo CRAC Unit Air Extension

The CRAC Unit Air Extension mounts to the top of the CRAC unit and extends to the drop ceiling. The Air Extension then draws higher temperature return air from the ceiling, back to the CRAC unit, increasing cooling capacity and resulting in increased CRAC unit efficiency. The Air Extension can also be used in rooms without drop ceilings as well, acting as a snorkel to pull warmer air from above the CRAC unit to increase efficiency.

Mighty Mo Air Extensions are made of high grade aluminum and are manufactured to meet the individual requirements of your data center.
