Just imagine today´s business world or the world in general without data. Life as we know it would simply not be possible. In this context, the importance of smoothly running data centers becomes obvious. Fast and secure data availability might be taken for granted by many of us – but it sure is not.

Air and Molecular Filtration Solutions for Data Centers

To keep data centers working reliably and preventing unexpected shutdowns, a full range of professional filtration solutions is needed. These filters are used for

  • proper cooling
  • ventilation
  • gas adsorption
  • keeping humidity levels stable and adequate and
  • preventing corrosion, which is the most probable cause for system failure

Simply because of the equipment becoming increasingly smaller, it is almost impossible to hermetically seal the tiny parts, prevent ion migration between them or control heat loads.

Depending on where your data center is located, it is in addition to that, exposed to different kinds of other external threats, such as for example elevated heat or humidity, extremely high pollution levels in densely polluted cities or agricultural by-products in rural areas, such as sulfur or ammonia.

MANN+HUMMEL offers a large portfolio of

  • HVAC filters
  • HEPA filters
  • Molecular filters
  • ATEX filters (air filter approved for the use in explosive atmospheres)
  • Air filter housings

Water & Fluid Filtration Solutions

Data centers also use huge amounts of water - directly and indirectly.
The direct use of water is subject to cooling the data farms which are heating up during operation. The indirect use is attributed to the tremendous amounts of energy these data centers are consuming. The power plants who produce this energy do consume extensive amounts of water for their cooling needs as well.

Researchers found that most water use at data centers is indirect since it takes an average 2 gallons of water to generate 1 kWh of energy in the United States, while an average data center uses 0.48 gallons of water for cooling for every kWh it consumes.

Even though it is not the first obvious fact that comes to peoples´ minds, huge quantities of clean water are essential to a smoothly functioning data center. As global fresh water resources are limited,  efficient water treatment technologies for water reuse as well as further purification technologies, such as reverse osmosis do play a game-changing role in this application.
MANN+HUMMEL Water & Fluid Technologies does provide a full portfolio from microfiltration, ultrafiltration, nanofiltration and reverse osmosis to provide the needed qualities of water and enable is efficient re-use and recycling.
