When choosing an extinguishing system, consideration also needs to be given to whether the system itself can cause any further damage to electrical or electronic devices. For data centers and server rooms, automated gas extinguishing systems are highly recommended as the gases they use do not harm sensitive technology. However, in 2009 an unusual amount of hard disk drive (HDD) disruptions was reported after discharges of these systems, so we began an investigation into why this was occurring. The findings concluded that magnetic hard disk drives are noise-sensitive. In response, we developed our Sinorix Silent Extinguishing Technology which significantly lowers the noise level during gas discharges. The experience we offer gives you the peace of mind of knowing that all aspects of data centers’ and server rooms’ needs are covered.
Different factors can help reduce the noise level during a discharge, such as improving the room acoustics or extending the discharge time. Our research identified nozzle design as one of the main contributors to reducing noise. That is why the Sinorix Silent Nozzle is the heart of our Sinorix Silent Extinguishing Technology. Its unique, linear design ensures that the noise level during discharges remains below the level that poses a risk to HDDs. In addition, by controlling the direction of the gas discharge and hence the sound waves, the Sinorix Silent Nozzle prevents sound-generated HDD malfunctions during extinguishing. Of course, the nozzle also ensures the smooth and efficient distribution of the extinguishing agent.
