Airflow Management Solutions

ProSource offers a comprehensive list of airflow management products to improve and protect your data center. Our solutions maximize cooling capacity and provide an optimal environment for servers.

Data center airflow

Manage & improve your airflow

Servers require a sufficient amount of cooling to function correctly. Although most data centers provide more than enough cooling, it often bypasses servers. Managing data center airflow will maximize existing cooling capacity and avoid heat-related issues.

Key Benefits

  • Reduces wasted cooling and heat-related problems
  • Improves efficiency of the existing cooling system
  • Avoids the cost of adding new cooling capacity

FAQs about airflow management

Why should I manage airflow in my data center?

Managing airflow in your data center improves equipment reliability, increases cooling efficiency, and protects against downtime. Plus, airflow management products are cost-effective and reduce operating costs.

What is bypass airflow, and why it should be eliminated?

Bypass airflow is any conditioned air that does not pass through servers before returning to a cooling unit. So, it’s essential to reduce wasted airflow to make your cooling system more efficient.

What steps should I take to begin improving airflow?

Start by sealing all floor and rack openings, and direct airflow at server cabinets with directional airflow panels. Next, use dampers and sensors to control cooling. Finally, contain airflow with either aisle or cabinet containment.

Key Benefits

  • Improves capture rates
  • Improves energy efficiency
  • Reduces bypass airflow

Dampers & Controls

Adjust airflow to match server loads with dampers and controls to optimize energy efficiency. Delivering the right amount of airflow to the right place is a key component of an energy-efficient data center. Automatic and manual dampers adjust cooling to match variable heat loads. Dampers significantly reduce bypass air and improve PUE.

Key Benefits

  • Adjusts airflow to match demand
  • Improves cooling efficiency
  • Reduces operating costs

Aisle & Cabinet Containment

Eliminate bypass airflow by physically separating supply and exhaust airflow in server aisles. We offer cold aisle and hot aisle containment, as well as fully-contained cabinets. Aisle containment designs can be easily installed and modified on site. Plus, we provide consulting, design, and installation to meet your cooling needs.
