Pentair Technical Products introduced Hoffman brand Proline Flotek TD server cabinets, which feature a top duct chimney (TD) to direct hot exhaust air from the cabinet to the plenum or drop ceiling (where it is directed back to the cooling unit). The design prevents the hot air from mixing with cool intake air, says Pentair, increasing cooling efficiency. Flotek TD cabinets can be used on raised floor or grade (concrete floor) applications. The cabinet is available in several standard size options, and the top duct is adjustable to various ceiling heights (up to 114 in.). The solid, fully gasketed rear door ensures all hot exhaust is directed straight to the top duct chimney, while front sealed 19-in. mounting rails, and top and bottom air-blocking plates, prevent cold air bypass.
