containmentMore and more of CTS projects do not end after the IST / hand-over of an ‘empty’ Data Hall to its Client.

Whether it be Hot Aisle or Cold Aisle; CONTAINMENT is a part of the services now being offered by CTS.

CTS is pleased to have teamed up with MODULAN, having used this German Designed and Engineered product and being able to compare with others, we have no doubt that this is currently the best product on the market.

The system is extremely FLEXIBLE and very well-Engineered it can be totally adapted to suit any Rack and Server configurations whilst also allowing the possibility of multi-layered cable routes incorporated into the structure, rather than an unsightly ‘add-on’.

We have already seen the results in terms of energy savings in other Data Centres. Whether your Data Hall is old, or new, we will carry our 3D modelling, using the latest Laser Technology. CTS will determine the best bespoke Containment Solution to suit your individual Data Hall requirements.

Raise your data centre to a higher efficiency level and reduce your air conditioning costs by up to 40% with the following four factors!
1. Higher flow temperature
As it is no longer possible for the warm exhaust air to warm the cold fresh air by mixing with it, the supply air temperature can be increased for the cooling units. The optimum temperature is still present in the cold aisle.

2. Better utilisation of the cooling units
Thanks to the clean separation of warm and cold air, air-conditioning bypasses in the topmost rack units in the cabinets can be excluded, even under top loads. Without containment, this was one of the main reasons why additional cooling units had to be activated, although the nominal capacity of the running devices was only exploited up to 70%.
3. Reduced air volume
The warm air extracted from the cooling units is now no longer mixed with fresh air and is thus warmer than before. Less air must therefore be drawn through the air conditioning unit to extract the same energy from the room. Less air volume means reduced fan speeds in the cooling units.

4. Lower fan speeds
Due to the partitioning of the cold aisles from the rest of the room, all servers - even those in the uppermost rack units - can be provided with cold air at the optimum temperature. Thanks to the now increased cooling performance of the air, the fans inside the computers need lower revolution speeds to extract the heat.
