When stored in these smaller spaces, what happens is that the heat gets trapped and the air that is circulating will get warmer and warmer which, if not properly ventilated and cooled, can cause systems to overheat and fail. In order to keep up a temperate environment that keeps these vital machines functioning at optimal performance, it often requires the use of electronic cooling systems that keep air flowing directly on the servers to cool and circulate the air.
Cooling systems are set up using four main parts. First, is the fan itself which blows and circulates the air. These are then paired with a filter that prevents dust and debris from getting into the server and interfering with performance. Then, there is the 80mm guard. This piece separates the fan from the server itself. The last piece is called a server rack which holds the entire assembly together and keeps these parts directly aligned with the server for optimal air flow.
The 80mm guard is a particularly vital part when putting the entire configuration together. This piece separates the cooling device from the server and protects both the fan and the cooling assembly. They are offered in both plastic and aluminum options depending on the need. They both are enough to give protection. The plastic option tends to be more economical, but the aluminum one will have a longer lifespan. They are both easily removed for cleaning.
80 mm guards keep costs minimal while providing optimal protection to electronics. Black is the standard color that the guards come in and they’re offered in different sizes both US and European. The company also offers that any sizes that they don’t come standard in can be custom made for customers with a particular need so that the configuration of their cooling system is precise and strategically aligned for largest air flow with the least amount of noise.
The website offers all different sizes and quantities of guards that can be purchased as low as $1.10 per unit. One of the most common guard sizes, the 80mm fans can be purchased for $1.30 per unit. All of the products offered by the company can be purchased in units or bought in bulk. Discounted prices are offered when items are purchased in larger quantities.
The company also offers kits that include the entire assembly of all four parts that have been strategically compiled for maximum air flow while outputting the minimum amount of noise, thus offering the best configuration. The kits require assembly and are also offered in a variety of sizes including the 80mm. Any sizes that aren’t included in the product listing online for the kits can also be custom ordered and built to fit the needs of the client.
