British Columbia, Canada (January 8, 2009)–Primacoustic has released its Machine Room, which is a compact enclosure designed to quiet down computers for recording studios.
It reportedly combines natural energy flow with forced air by providing the cool air intake at the bottom and allowing the hot air to rise and exit at the top. This is supplemented with a variable speed fan that “sucks” the warm air out from the top and forces it through a foam-lined manifold to ensure exit fan turbulence noise is subdued.
Both the filtered intake vent and outtake port are positioned at the rear of the enclosure to minimize noise in the front working zone. A full-view front window with an access door allows the user to access the computer quickly. A foam-rubber surround seal and positive latch ensures the door will close tight. To reduce inner reflections, the side walls of the Machine Room are treated with high-density, open-cell foam which is embedded with a fire retardant to meet the C-117 safety specification. The variable-speed fan and optional thermometer provide the user with control over airflow and desired cooling level.
