Data Processing Apparatus With Air Cooling Module Having Blowers in Tandem Located On Or Under Raised Floor

A blower module for an air cooled data processing apparatus has two blowers arranged in tandem in separate compartments. The module is about 18 inches high and can be located either on the raised floor and alongside the computer frame or under the raised floor. Modules can be arranged in parallel for additional volume of cooling air or in series for higher pressure.

Fig. 1 is a perspective showing a raised floor 2, a computer frame 3, and a blower module 4 located alongside the computer frame on the raised floor. Fig. 2 is a section view showing raised floor 2, a duct 5 formed below the raised floor, the computer frame 3, a vertical duct 6 in the computer frame, and two blowers 7 and 8 and their compartments 9 and 10. Arrows show the path of cooling air.
