Data centers operating in areas with elevated levels of ambient pollution, specially when outside is used for “free cooling”, can experience hardware failures due to changes in electronic equipment mandated by a number of “lead-free” regulations, the reduction of circuit board feature sizes, the decreasing of the size of transistors and the miniaturization of components.
Air quality measurement data centers
A simple quantitative method to determine the airborne corrosivity is by “reactive monitoring”, using our air monitoring line, as described in ANSI/ISA-71.04-2013, “Environmental Conditions for Process Measurement and Control Systems: Airborne Contaminants”.
Heartfil offers a complete data center assessment program identifying the airborne corrosivity.
Based on the outcome we can provide low energy, air cleaning systems meeting the standards decribed in ANSI/ISA,
ASHRAE Technical Committee 9.9 and iNemi 2012.
