Turn-key cooling solutions from design to installation.

Data Center Cooling and DataSpan

To properly operate today’s information technology equipment, it’s important to understand the environmental challenges that affect it in order to choose the right cooling system for your facility. The three biggest threats to servers and related equipment are heat, humidity levels and contaminants, such as dust. Now, let’s take a brief look at how these factors can adversely impact sensitive electronic equipment.

In general terms, data center equipment generates heat. If that heat is allowed to build up, servers will either shut down or, if they operate at higher-than-recommended temperatures for extended periods of time, their lifespan will be shortened. Along with heat, if the humidity levels inside a data center aren’t kept under control, high humidity can result in condensation buildup and corrosion of equipment, while low humidity levels can result in electrostatic discharge or ESD.

In addition, contaminants such as dust are more likely to settle on equipment in high humidity, which can cause reduced heat transfer by leaving components coated in debris. In the specific case of zinc whiskers, which are often found collecting around raised flooring tiles, the whiskers can become airborne. Their conductive nature leads to shorts inside equipment, resulting in costly unplanned shutdowns.

Of course, the way to create a healthy environment for both your data center equipment and personnel is to work with a data center cooling expert like DataSpan. We understand the challenges modern data centers face because we’ve been helping optimize data centers’ operations for more than four decades. Thanks to our extensive experience, we have the expertise to design, install and maintain a cooling system that’s the best match for your needs today — while at the same time being scalable for your future needs as your company grows.
