Data Center Corrosion

Gaseous contaminants, which are too small for even the HEPA systems in the server rooms, are omnipresent in the environment. These can be dangerous for the electronic equipment by way of data center corrosion, causing a loss of data and cost of maintenance.

Electrical equipment like PCBs and servers are susceptible to corrosion by sulphurs and oxides, eroding the machine and thereby resulting in the loss of valuable data loss.

Even the increased humidity can add to the problem, causing corrosion across conductive pathways and whiskering, shortening the very life of the machine.

ANSI has established 4 levels of specifications for Indoor Air Quality for maintaining the life of the equipment. They are:
