Chatsworth Products gets additional patents for airflow innovations

Expert in airflow management and creator of Passive Cooling® technology, Chatsworth Products (CPI), has announced the addition of several new patents to its long list of breakthrough, pioneering innovations for the data center, the company said.

For more than 26 years, CPI has provided industry-leading IT infrastructure products that support and protect critical ICT equipment. This includes innovations for data centers, such as ducted exhaust cabinets, aisle containment, as well as thermal products that enable companies to drastically reduce energy consumption.

US Patent No. 9,801,309 covers the ducted exhaust cabinet with a telescoping Vertical Exhaust Duct that maintains a complete seal but is collapsible, so it can be easily shipped with and quickly installed on cabinets.

US Patent No. 9,795,060 covers a modular thermal isolation barrier for use in sealing gaps between panels of CPI´s Build to Spec Kit (BTS) Hot Aisle Containment. The bulb seal fits the edge of panels and seals gaps without the need for adhesives or mechanical fastening. BTS Kit integrates with perimeter cooling, provides immediate improved cooling efficiency and is compatible with economization methods. It is ideal for retrofit applications over a mix of cabinets, including cabinets of varying heights, widths and depths.

US Patent No. 9,781,852 covers data center cabinets with panels that feature removable, rectangular knockouts with a split brush assembly to provide a sealed pass-through opening for cables.

US Patent No. 9,814,159 covers the rail seal that attaches to the vertical equipment mounting rails in CPI´s data center cabinets. The seal engages with side panels, blocking airflow around the sides of rack-mount equipment, while allowing cables to pass through.

CPI provides products and services that protect investments in information and communication technology. Its manufacturing facilities are located in the United States, Asia and Europe.
