Data Center Corrosion Testing

Data Center Corrosion Testing

Data centers are the crucial part of every organization anywhere in the world. Corrosion testing plays an important part as data centers are prone to indoor air pollution which leads to malfunction or failure of machines resulting in loss of valuable data. Regular testing will help avoid such situations and use machines more efficiently.

Sources of Pollutants in Data Centers

  • Dust / Exhaust carried by air
  • Pollution
  • Overheated servers
  • Diesel-burning emergency generators

Why Should Data Centers Be Tested?

  • Ventilation circulates air pollutants from outside into facilities
  • Contaminants damage circuit boards, servers and cooling systems
  • Reduces energy cost
  • Protect delicate electronic equipments

Frequently Asked Question

  • How long does a corrosion test last?
    If a product is tested in a natural exposure environment, it may take 1 year for its corrosion, while a test in salt spray test chamber may take as long as 24 hours to obtain similar results. Different products, different countries have different testing requirements.
  • How is building up corrosion at Data Centers dangerous?
    If the electronic components are affected, it can cause major damage to one’s entire data storage facility. Edge connectors are mostly at a higher risk in comparison to disk drives and film disks because they are made of copper and are situated on the circuit boards.
  • What are the consequences of the data center being contaminated?
    Data center contamination can be very harmful and can cause reduced energy efficiency to major equipment failure.
  • How do you maintain a data center?
    The maintenance of data centers plays a very important role in the profitability of the infrastructure. To maintain a data center one can do a regular visual inspection, cleaning, testing, reporting, monitoring, repairing, perform safety checks to increase the life of the data center.
