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