Data Center Applications

Customizable Airflow Solutions

Data centers of today consume high levels of power to maintain an optimal level of performance. Many factors contribute to the overall usage of this power. One of the most significant components is conditioning the equipment space. As the data center industry continues to grow, the following critical airflow challenges need to be addressed:

  • Targeted Air Dispersion
  • Temperature Consistency
  • Air Containment 

With these challenges in mind, DuctSox has developed the first directionally adjustable air displacement system for the data center industry. The air displacement portion of the DuctSox System places large volumes of air within the cold aisle with low velocity, and the adjustability allows for higher-wattage server targeting. Minimal hot air entrainment is achieved, reducing or eliminating the need for physical containment structures, while lowering construction costs and getting better PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) ratings.

Why Fabric?

For decades, traditional metal units that moved air throughout a facility were commonly referred to as “ductwork.” Each system requiring a variety of components to achieve proper airflow. When fabric was introduced a few decades ago, it was referred to as “fabric ductwork” or “fabric ducting.” The reality is fabric provides a complete air dispersion system that performs in ways that metal cannot.

Next Steps

When designing a fabric system, DuctSox engineers will detail performance and design requirements while creating a custom solution for your application.

In addition to design assistance, DuctSox provides an extensive Engineering and Design Manual that will guide you through the key elements of a DuctSox system.

Whether for a new building or retrofitting an existing space, DuctSox Airflow Solutions just make more sense than metal ductwork.
