Data Centers and server rooms are continuously improving their efficiencies to store and process more data. Improvements in computing hardware have led to an increase in Hard Disk Drive (HDD) sensitivity to sound. Gaseous fire suppression systems, normally used to protect this type of equipment, can produce sound levels that may have adverse effects on noise sensitive equipment.
The ANSUL® Acoustic Nozzle, in combination with an INERGEN® or SAPPHIRE® Fire Suppression System, is particularly useful for suppressing fires in hazards where sound levels may affect sensitive electronic equipment as found in server rooms and data centers. The nozzle reduces the sound power level compared with standard nozzles and offers exceptional area coverage. It is suitable for use with existing hydraulic flow calculation software and available with both NPT and BSP connection threads.
