ContraFlo Cabinet: Reverse flow cabinet for efficient, low cost design

The ContraFlo cabinet turns airflow upside down to offer an alternative to hot aisle containment or chimney designs. Using a raised floor plenum as the return plenum, ContraFlo can simplify the requirements needed to successfully isolate hot exhaust air. 

Using any flooded room approach the cool air is supplied to the IT equipment through a typical perforated front cabinet door. ContraFlo then uses a solid roof and rear doors to channel the exhaust air down through a high volume airflow panel into the raised floor plenum, isolating it from the cool air in the room. Pressure differential monitoring is used at the rack level to maintain accurate airflow delivery at all times, ensuring no more energy than required is used for cooling the space.

Key Performance Characteristics

  • Independent supply and return airflow paths fully contained within rack for expanded available economization temperature range
  • Isolated airflow maintains comfortable working conditions regardless of supply air temperature
  • Design for use with DirectAire Al and various control options
  • Rooftop cable cutouts and optional grommets to minimize air leakage
  • Rooftop chimney design to minimize hot air recirculation

IsoFlo Cabinets: Reverse Completely isolated airflow for easy deployment

Tate’s IsoFlo cabinet completely isolates the IT cooling from the rest of the facility. Automated airflow controls reduce energy costs and provide the most efficient use of the data centres IT cooling capacity. The dedicated airflow path for equipment cooling aids in the implementation of fully economized or passive airflow cooling designs.

Total cabinet level containment offers additional value over aisle level containment, lower first costs and the ability to continually reduce cooling operating costs throughout the life of the data centre as hardware requirements change.
