|Increase server performance by implementing cold aisle containment|
Instead of flooding the Data Centre with cold air, the cold aisle containment system from Rittal effectively traps the cool air exactly where it is needed directly in front of the air intake of the servers. Cold air is directed across the whole height of the enclosure ensuring that there are no hotspots and the hot air is exhausted out of the system. Due to the cold aisle being contained there is no chance of the hot exhaust air mixing with the cold inlet air, therefore there is an increase in system efficiency.
The special energy efficiency of the Rittal cold aisle concept has a simple and plausible explanation:
1. Cold and hot air cannot mix, warm air does not flow into the cold aisle.
2. The system can be operated with a much higher extracted air temperature.
3. Standard air circulation cooling units are operated at an optimum thermal efficiency level.
