HotSpotr HT-510 underfloor air mover - top; HotSpotr™ Airflow Management for Datacenters
Posted By: Phil Daniels

HotSpotr™ HT-510 underfloor air movers eliminate data center hot spots Data centers vary in size, location, and purpose, having diverse and continually evolving architectures. Enterprise, managed services, and colocation data centers are just a few of the types of data centers which store, process, and disseminate data. Despite the differences, managing airflow remains a common, […]

Computer room air conditioning (CRAC) is essential to protecting IT gear and optimizing data center performance. Containment strategies that restrict the mixing of hot and cold air within data centers can significantly increase cooling capacity and reduce energy costs. Cold aisle containment systems isolate server supply air using physical barriers, whereas hot aisle containment systems […]

Air pressure monitor for healthcare facilities to contain airborne contaminants.
Posted By: John Callanan

Properly pressurizing rooms (positive or negative) protects patients, visitors, and staff in hospitals and health care facilities. ASHE (American Society for Health Care Engineering) provides examples of positively pressurized rooms, designed to keep airborne contaminants out, and negatively pressurized rooms, designed to contain airborne contaminants.  Now, more than ever, hospitals and healthcare facilities are searching for […]

Chemical fume hood airflow measured with multipoint sensor.
Posted By: Jan Fischer

Regular testing and inspection assure fume hoods, or fume cupboards, perform as required to protect laboratory personnel. Performance testing of fume hoods should be done at least annually, and airflow testing and face velocity testing are pivotal in evaluating fume hood containment and operation. (From OSHA’s chemical fume hood fact sheet:  Laboratory standard 29 CFR 1910.1450 requires […]

Monitor for Local Exhaust Ventilation System
Posted By: John Callanan

Local exhaust ventilation (LEV) is an engineering control measure to reduce employee exposure to airborne contaminants in the workplace. LEV systems capture or contain process emissions and carry them away, minimizing the risk of workers breathing in contaminated air. Although LEV systems vary considerably, common elements include: A hood to capture contaminants (dust, fumes, gas, […]

3D printing gas flow analysis as part of printer calibration
Posted By: Jan Fischer

3D Printing Gas Flows Validation with Multipoint Air Velocity Measurement Laser beam is a type of powder bed fusion found in additive manufacturing (AM) processes that form parts through adding material, rather than subtracting it. Industrial metal 3D printers use laser-based powder bed fusion of metals (PBF-LB/M), where a laser is used to melt and […]

Grow room optimization with embedded airflow sensors.
Posted By: Alex Sargent

Plant growth chambers and rooms create environmental conditions for healthy growth and controlled environments for analyzing plants. Growth chambers vary in size, style, and features. They may include airflow or ventilation systems, as well as methods to control and monitor lighting, temperature, and humidity, in order to simulate different environmental conditions. Embedded airflow sensors and switches are key […]

Airflow sensor UAS1000 used for measuring temperature and air velocity on test fixtures in open compute project.
Posted By: Jan Fischer

The Open Compute Project NIC 3.0 standard simplifies the installation of network interface cards in servers such that any OCP NIC 3.0 card works in any OCP NIC 3.0 server. The standard includes details for the thermal test fixtures which test the cooling capability of OCP NIC 3.0 cards in measured airflow. Degree Controls has the purpose-built […]

Used for monitoring ICUs and cleanrooms for air velocity and pressure.
Posted By: John Callanan

Application solutions for airflow and pressure monitoring in cleanrooms, medical device manufacturing, pharmaceutical processing, hospital ICUs, and medical treatment facilities are built on the Rooster™ platform of monitors. With an intuitive, glove-friendly, color touchscreen interface, Rooster™ Monitors are designed for critical containment applications where cleanroom parameters need to be viewed, monitored, alarmed, and communicated to […]

OEM air cleaners and air purifiers benefit from integrated airflow sensing.
Posted By: Alex Sargent

Air purifiers or air cleaners remove contaminants from the air in a room or space to improve indoor air quality.  They work by pulling air in, moving air through a filtration system to capture, or neutralize, pollutants and/or particles, and then pushing cleaned air back out.  Many air purifiers include a fan. Whether the system consists of HEPA, […]
