DataSox – Customised Air Dispersion for Data Centers

ductsox logoData 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, but one of the most significant components is conditioning the equipment space.

As technological advancements increase, hardware manufacturers can continually improve their equipment offerings to the data center industry. These new hardware opportunities lead to increased power density within the conditioned space; this creates the need for additional cooling to meet the acceptable temperature requirements that hardware manufacturers and ASHRAE have established.

Fabric Ducting chosen for Brooke Street Pier Project

DuctSox Fabric Ducting was chosen to be installed at the new Brooke Street Pier, Hobart, Tasmania.

The new Brooke Street Pier project, located on Hobart’s waterfront, was recently completed. The 4,000-tonne floating structure was towed eight km’s down the River Derwent to Waterman’s Dock, where it has been connected to undersea anchors. The 3-storey floating pier houses three restaurants and tourist shops and is being used as a ferry terminal by the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA).

Circa Morris Nunn Architects selected DuctSox fabric to be used in a unique vertical installation delivering displacement ventilation through engineered L-Vents.

DuctSox Fabric Ducting installed at Wrigleys Facility

DuctSox Fabric Ducting at WrigleysDuctSox Fabric Ducting installed at Wrigleys Manufacturing & Distribution Facility – Asquith, NSW.

Wrigley is a recognised leader in confections with a wide range of product offerings including gum, mints, hard and chewy candies, and lollipops. Wrigley’s world-famous brands – including Extra®, Orbit®, Doublemint®, and 5™ chewing gums, as well as confectionery brands Skittles®, Starburst®, Altoids® and Life Savers®.

Recently completed using DuctSox Verona Fabric with 1-Row Aluminium U-Track Suspension System.

Critical selection criteria included comfort levels; zero risk of condensation; dust settling and hygiene.
• DuctSox Comfort-Flow linear L-Vent air distribution orifices were used to achieve high comfort levels.
• Verona fabric is a porous fabric (breathable) and will not condensate because of the airflow pattern around the fabric keeps the warm moist air off the fabric walls. This airflow will also avoid any dust settling on the fabric.
Wrigley's Asquith NSWDuctSox woven fabrics do not absorb moisture which can be a source for development of bacteria and mould. The hygienic nature of DuctSox provides resistance to fabric deterioration and breakdown extending life and minimising maintenance.
• All DuctSox systems are designed to be easily removed and laundered.

The installation needed to be aesthetically attractive as Wrigley receive visitors through the manufacturing plant. Using the DuctSox Alu U-Track system allowed the install to look more attractive without having tensioned cable extending past the fabric duct.
