The rack is a circular carousel of 100 cages that rotates on maintenance-free, low-friction bearings so that operators can access any cage in the unit from a single side. The rack does not have blowers, but instead relies on fresh or HEPA-filtered air from the HVAC system to deliver convection-assisted, low-velocity, one-pass air across its cages.
