Server Room Cooling
Computers are intricate machines that must operate at cool temperatures in order to work without running into operating complications. Unfortunately, computers produce a large amount of heat and server rooms compound that heat with the large volumes of CPUs placed in one central location. A server room that overheats can cripple IT activity and result in a significant amount of data loss, which is why it is essential to have a proper server room cooling system installed. At Ducting.com we offer the right tools to install an efficient cooling and ventilation system.
A server room HVAC system is a great solution to keeping your server CPUs working cool and efficiently. The CPU ducting system will work to bring in cool air and transfer out the hot air produced by the computers. The server room HVAC system will allow you to maintain a steady temperature at all times and we offer the perfect CPU ducting products perfect for computer cooling applications. Furthermore, by having a separate system of HVAC flexible ducting for your server room, you will be able to solely regulate the temperature dependent on the needs of the server’s themselves, without needing to worry about outside factors that could affect building wide cooling systems.
If installing an entire server room HVAC system is not practical for your situation, another popular server room cooling solution is to install a portable air conditioning unit near your servers, as well as increase the ventilation present in your room. Though they (perhaps obviously) require much less in general, portable air conditioning units require specific types of flexible ducting just like full HVAC systems, however. For this reason, even if you decide to utilize a portable air conditioning unit for your server room cooling needs, it is still a good idea to be aware of the types of duct material out there for your use.
Our CPU ducting products are our most cost effective hosing products made of polyester and coated in PVC. These server room HVAC hoses are extremely light-weight and compressible, allowing you to easily maneuver and place them in an optimum position without getting tangled into your CPU and network cables. These ducts also feature an external wear strip that protects the hose from being damaged when you move the hose along the server room. Keeping you server room chilled is vital, and needs to be maintained at all time; unintended rips and drops in cable duct cooling performance can cause serious problems for your IT systems. Always make sure the exteriors of your server room cooling ducts are protected to facilitate maximum cooling quality. These polyester hoses also feature the temperature capabilities necessary for server room cooling.
PVC vinyl is one increasingly popular material from which server room cooling ducts have been made of. Dispossessed with high degrees of chill and heat resistance, as well as their capability to resist abrasion damage, PVC is utilized in server room cooling applications throughout the world. It also functions remarkably well as flexible ductwork, as it is extremely easy to bend and manipulate into position, in addition to being highly compressible (a feature that allows flex ducts made from PVC/vinyl to be transported and stowed with ease).
Along with their excellent durability, these ducting products are excellent in filtering both the cool and hot air necessary to keep the CPU temperatures at a minimum. These products offer a temperature range as low as -65 degrees Fahrenheit to cool down large server rooms while more cost effective options have a low of -20 degrees Fahrenheit. Not only do you need to bring in cool air to maintain a low server room temperature, but you must also ventilate the hot air created by the CPUs. Our CPU ducting products handle a high temperature range of 180 to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. We offer many products to accommodate the specific needs of the size of your server room. Different types of server room cooling ducts have different levels of temperature resistance, however, so be sure to check the compatibility of different materials’ resistances with the needs of your sever room or IT facility before you buy.
Take a look at our detailed catalog of server room cooling ducts to find the product that meets the demands of the size of your server room and the number of CPUs it contains. Buying the right types of server room cooling system can be at times confusing, so if you have any questions call one of our ducting specialists for assistance today!
