Cooling comprises 60 to 70 percent of a data center’s total power consumption, with the remainder devoted to equipment operations. With energy costs skyrocketing, the data center industry faces more pressure than ever before to conserve power.

Premier Solutions Co. provides innovative and standard cooling solutions to enterprise centers, with pre- and post-readings to determine the project’s success.

Airflow Management (AFM) Solutions:

Proven Steps to an effective AFM redirecting airflow to the server inlet

  • Protect and maintain cooling efficiencies thru the separation of cooling supply and return air increases  cooling capacity,
  • Reduces cooling maintenance costs
  • Eliminate “Over provisioning of cooling

Implementation of an AFM solution is key to moving forward with precision cooling, DCIM solutions and expansion of power load.

  • Adjust air flow Rate (AFR)coolingimage2
  • adjust SAT (supply air temp)
  • Adjust server inlet temp ( SIT)
  • “real time sensoring”(RTS) to confirm predictions
  • set inlet temp threshold. less work for server fans
  • Heat removal rate ( in KW) HRR
  • delta T ( inlet/return)

Solutions within AFM program



  • Hotlok blanking panels: directs cool air to the server inlet
  • aisle lok panel: seals under cabinet gaps
  • koldlok: sealing of raised floor openings increases static pressure
  • High air flow panels in cool aisle with CFM output matching Power usage for effective cooling.
  • Proper hear rejection /recirculation in hot aisle


56% open area Triad™ Chamfer Airflow panel features patented airflow enhancement technology.

  • Steel design offers heavy-duty load capacity.
  • Multi-directional fins under panel increases airflow over flat-bottom grates
  • Higher cooling plume allows cold air to reach entire height of rack.
  • Upper server temperatures can be reduced 10 – 20 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Overall cooling requirements may be reduced by as much as 40%.

Row- based Cooling Solutions

With most centers delivering less than 50% of cool air from CRAC to intake, Inrow cooling increases efficiency for high density systems.

Thermal containment products maximize the effectiveness of inrow cooling solutions for low- to high-density racked IT loads. Available in rack or aisle level configurations, these products are designed to completely separate the supply and return air paths of the IT equipment.

Inrow vs. room-based cooling: Optimize your cooling by delivering cool air direct to the rows of servers and eliminate hot and cold air mix. For 20KW per rack capacity needed, rack cooling solutions are available

Liebert CRV™ Self-Contained Row-Based Data Center Cooling

 Thermal Aisle  Containment

California’s energy efficiency standards went into effect.

Title 24 will require, among other things:

  • Prohibiting reheat in computer rooms
  • Containment in large, high-density data centers with air-cooled computers

In order to prevent hot air from mixing with air that’s been mechanically chilled, data centers will need to modify their existing facilities to provide hot and cold aisle containment

This solution can retrofit into your existing rows of cabinets and turn the center into a contained data center and increase efficiency 40-50% resulting in increased set points.

  • Retrofit to almost any installation
  • Translucent panels allow light to pass for improved visibility
  • Sliding doors minimize the space required versus swinging door solutions
  • Levelers accommodate uneven flooring to align doors
  • Brush seals help prevent leakage
  • Modular design speeds installation
  • Translucent Material has an ASTM E84 Class I fire-rating
  • Built to order for your space


Hot Aisle containment (HACS)

A typical data center, 50% loaded, the IT energy is the largest portion of the energy cost, followed by the cooling system energy cost.

HACS for new installations utilizing inrow cooling can save 45% in annual cooling costs, with a realized ROI in 12-18 months




Cold Aisle Containment (CAC)

Designed for existing raised floor data centers, with perimeter cooling as the primary source, a consideration, is to utilize inrow cooling as a supplemental cooling  strategy

We team with the best of breed , Polargy and Sub-zero to bring you containment designed to your existing layout.

Rack-Level Cooling:

APC Inrow Server heat densities are increasing in High Performance centers (HPC).

The Motivair Chilled Door® Rack Cooling System manages the critical cooling requirements of higher density server racks whichcannot be effectively cooled with traditional air conditioning, in-row coolers or passive rear door coolers – and at the lowest possible energy cost.

The latest Motivair Chilled Door® is an “active” hinged door that replaces the rear door of any standard or OEM server rack via an interface frame. The Chilled Door® is capable of removing up to 45 kW per rack with 65F supply water, using less than 500 watts of fan power.
