This year’s Data Centre World has a unique twist. For the first time ever it will have its very own data centre. The full-scale exhibit will showcase products and solutions in a real world scenario to allow you to get hands-on with the latest data centre equipment. IPU will be on the stand to explain how a Diesel Defence Fuel Polishing unit can help your data centre stay online.
CloserStill the organisers behind Data Centre World have put together the ultimate data centre. Its purpose is to give visitors the opportunity to walk through what makes a successful data centre. From flooring to generators, racks to fuel polishing, you will unlock the puzzle of products which completes the data centre jigsaw.
Clean fuel is critical to the reliability of backup generators, but not many organisations realise that diesel actually has a shelf life. If the condition of fuel is ignored it could put critical systems at risk in the event of a blackout. What would be the cost to your data centre if the generators don’t kick in? Loss of revenue? Or worse, damage to your reputation?
Fuel companies (such as BP and ExxonMobil) advise that under normal storage conditions diesel can remain reliable for just 6-12 months. After this it begins to suffer from 3 main types of contamination including water, microbial growth (a.k.a. diesel bug) and solid particulates. Depending on the type and severity of the contamination this can clog filters, cause damage to fuel injectors or worse result in total engine failure.
Do you know how long you’ve had your diesel for? A year? 5 years? 10 years? Are you willing to gamble with your companies 99.999% uptime rating?
Thankfully with a little help from IPU’s Fuel Conditioning Programme, diesel degradation is entirely preventable. Please use this link to find out how it could safeguard your business.
