Abstract

A liquid to air heat exchanger, fans, and air ducts are arranged to fit into the space otherwise covered by a few raised floor tiles in a computer room. For example, in a unit of five tiles in a + shape, the heat exchanger and fans are located in the four outer tile positions. The upper surface of the apparatus is the same as conventional raised floor tiles except that the surfaces over the air ducts have holes for air to flow upwardly into the room. A refrigeration system supplies chilled air to the space under the floor tiles, as is conventional.
