Many organisations today run an on-site server room and even with the growth of Cloud-based services and hyperscale data centres will continue to do so. Somewhere within the building, businesses and organisations need an IT facility to process and store data locally as well as connect them to external IT services and SaaS platforms.
Your server room or data centre is one of the worst possible places for a fire to start. Business and organisation interruption are inevitable and whilst hardware can be replaced in time, very often up-to-date data cannot. Even if the fire is quickly contained, smoke from a fire can lead to extensive IT server and network peripheral damage due to the corrosive chemicals within the smoke (sulphur and chloride elements). Brief smoke exposure can damage sensitive electronics as can high temperatures and off course exposure to flames.
Datacentres and server rooms are in a constant state of evolution when it comes to the top three concerns of IT technology, critical power and critical cooling. As servers become more powerful, they need more power to support larger facilities and cloud based services. This in turn leads not only to the need for more power but a greater risk of fire and related damage.
The noble gases make up a class of chemical elements with similar properties; under standard conditions, they are all y.
Noble gases area class of chemical elements with similar properties and under standard conditions are odourless, colourless, monatomic gases with very low chemical reactivity. In order of their density the Noble gasses are Helium, Neon, Argon, Krypton, Xenon and Radon. Noble gasses are also known as Inert gasses and are used within inert gas fire protection solutions.
Pure Inert gases and the constituents of the blended versions (G-55-IG-541-IG-100) are found naturally in the atmosphere and are environmentally safe, having an ozone depletion potential (ODP) of zero and a global warming potential (GWP) of zero.
The costs to recharge a discharged or partially discharged fire suppression system depend upon its design. We provide a recharge service and would need to know the type of system installed, the number of cylinders, their location and of course the fire suppression agent require. We would normally carry out a site survey before quoting as part of our risk assessment and method statement.
