Air-cooled server boards and other electronics in data centers are often the first “filter” air reaches from the subfloor and interior air. Cement dust, human hair and skin flakes, acoustical ceiling powder, drywall particulate, air handler belt debris, tracked in dust from shoes and clothes, and other contributing factors will lead to insulating blankets and bridges of dust and contamination on your sensitive equipment over time.
Air cooled computer, network, storage and server equipment must stay clean of microscopic static charged dust, particles, gasses, residue and ferrous metals to reduce risk of downtime. SET3 can assist in removal of these contaminates from servers, tape readers and other sensitive electronics inside your cabinets.
Your servers and other power and electronic gear should be cleaned on the interior to avoid contamination issues such as:
- Corrosion from Ionic Contaminates
- Number one cause of electronics failure
- Dirt & Dust are the most common contaminants
- Contamination Causes Heat Stress
- Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) Reduced by 50% with each 10°C Rise
- Shorts & Intermittent Failures
- Semi-Conductive Bridging
- Hard Failures
- Soft Failures & Data Corruption
- Fire suppression system failures
Contact SET3 today for more information on receiving a quote to clean the interior of your equipment and servers.
Building out? Be Proactive, Not Reactive
If your data center environment is going to have construction or major activity in the room – a preventative cross-contamination plan should be put in place and managed before the activity takes place. Proactive preventative planning is essential to quality uptime operations.
Protect Your Equipment From Downtime
There are hundreds of documented studies detailing problems with dust, dirt and debris derailing sensitive equipment in data centers. Particles can cause a bridge between two ports causing a short circuit, misread or power down.
Additionally, although circuit boards do not easily rust – ferrous metal dust does. This debris can go airborne and settle easily onto sensitive services.
Protect your data center equipment, have SET3 remove microscopic particles from your data center environment and equipment. Contact us today to learn more on cleaning dust in data centers and how SET3 can help you control contamination in your data center environment.
