Remove your gaseous enemy and be electronic corrosion-free with Bry-Air

Bry-Air EcoScrub Gas Phase Filtration System is ideal for human and hardware health. It removes contaminants and eliminates downtime by removing corrosive gases through the process of adsorption and chemisorption. Contaminated air passes through pre-filters which retain dust and particles. Thereafter, the chemical media stages (combination of activated carbon and activated alumina impregnated with proprietary chemicals) , chemically destroy remaining gaseous contaminants. Bry-Air EcoScrub is designed to maintain the ISA standard 71.04, IEC standard and environmental standards followed by electronics manufacturers.

Bry-Air: A step ahead, always

Bry-Air’s Gas Phase Filtration laboratory in Gurgaon is one-of-its-kind, fully-furnished with state-of-the-art technology and systems. The laboratory is well-equipped to test the performance of impregnated/non-impregnated loose granular media and air-cleaning devices, which can help engineers in the selection of chemical filters with right media.

Is Your Data Center Lacking a Critical Protective Element?

According to an ASHRAE white paper on Data Center Airborne Contamination presented by members of TC 9.9 committee, the gaseous contamination is one of the major causes for the high rate of hardware failures in data centers. The study was supported by all major computing equipment manufacturers like IBM, Intel, HP, CISCO, Dell, etc. The report suggested that gaseous contamination should be modified within ANSI / ISA – 71.04 – 1985 severity level G1.

Many data centers may have harmful environment arising from infiltration of outdoor particulate or gaseous contaminants: Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S), Sulphur Dioxide (SO2), Bromine and Oxides of Nitrogen, Chlorine etc. Specially, data centers located in the industrial townships like Noida (Delhi NCR), Okhla industrial area (Delhi), Malad (Mumbai), etc. are more prone to gaseous contaminants. The ASHRAE white paper also highlighted that in addition to temperature and humidity control, dust and gaseous contamination should also be monitored and controlled. These additional environmental measures are especially important for data centers located near industrial and other sources which pollute the environment.

Data Centers are more prone to airborne contamination if they are situated nearby:

  • Sewers / drains
  • Landfill sites
  • High density traffic
  • Process Industry (discharging industrial effluents)

How corrosion affects electronic equipment and components?

Electronic components are a complex assembly of metallic and non-metallic materials which are highly susceptible to corrosion. Electronic corrosion, if left untreated, can affect electronic components as follows:

  • Film Disk – Stored information could get lost at the reaction site. Additionally, as reaction products accumulate, mechanical failure can occur on data tracks, previously not corroded.
  • Edge Connectors – These connectors are situated on the circuit boards, made solely of copper, or are gold-plated over a nickel-plated copper substrate. Corrosion can easily lead to disruption in the connector points and affect data transfer.
  • Disk Drives – The formation of disk drives are such that, it makes them highly susceptible to electronic corrosion even in indoor environment.

Electronic corrosion can result in:

  • Electronic malfunction or failure
  • Increase in downtime and maintenance cost
  • Reduced productivity

If corrosive gases and contaminants are overlooked, it creates an unhealthy environment for employees too.
