Abstract

With the recent increase of the rotational speed of hard disk drives, nanoparticle contamination can cause serious problems including thermal asperity. We designed a comb-shaped clamp and spacer to improve the efficacy of the recirculation filter in the operation of the hard disk drive (HDD). We calculated flow characteristics by a commercial computational fluid dynamics (CFD) code for six cases of the comb-shaped clamp and spacer. The calculation results showed that the outward velocity was the highest when the comb-shape angle was 45°. We measured temporal variations of particle concentration during the operation of the HDD by experiments. Considering the decay rate and the percent clean-up of particle concentration, we found the case of 45° to be the best design.
