Chimney Systems

A chimney system consists of a solid metal chimney that extends from the top rear of the IT racks. The hot air is pushed through the chimney up to the ceiling return air plenum. This type of system is highly compatible with most data centers due to the fact that it can be installed on an already existing enclosure. They can be installed not only on an individual cabinet but also on a system which can span several cabinets.

  • ✓ Hot air is completely eliminated from the space and the room remains cool, in turn lowering operational costs.
  • ✓ Increased flexibility with installation and configuration.




This type of chimney system has a fan installed at the base of the chimney which will assist airflow and can respond based on temperature or pressure.



This type of chimney system is used without a fan.
