Datacom Contamination: Stopping it Before it Starts
July 14, 2009

While particle and gaseous contamination resulting from dust and dirt can lead to unexpected shutdowns of critical IT equipment, the connection between contamination and hardware failures is often overlooked. A new book from the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) provides basic information that is essential to the control and prevention of particulate and gaseous contamination in datacom facilities. Particulate and Gaseous Contamination in Datacom Environments identifies datacom equipment susceptibility and operational impact, strategies for prevention and control as well as contamination testing and analysis.

The book is part of the ASHRAE Datacom Series, developed to provide a more comprehensive treatment of datacom cooling and related subjects. Other books in the series are High Density Data Centers — Case Studies and Best Practices, Design Considerations for Datacom Equipment Centers, Best Practices for Datacom Facility Energy Efficiency, Thermal Guidelines for Data Processing Environments, Liquid Cooling Guidelines for Datacom Equipment Centers, Datacom Equipment Power Trends and Cooling Applications, and Structural and Vibration Guidelines for Datacom Equipment Centers.

The cost of Particulate and Gaseous Contamination in Datacom Environments is $54 (ASHRAE members, $46). To order, contact ASHRAE Customer Service at 1-800-527-4723 (United States and Canada) or 404-636-8400 (worldwide), fax 404-321-5478, or visit the ASHARE book store online.
