Ensure Optimum Humidity Levels Throughout Your Facility
The control of humidity in data centers and other IT environments is essential to achieving high availability. Too much or too little humidity directly contributes to reduced productivity and equipment downtime.
Importance of Maintaining Humidity Levels
Too much humidity in the data center — If a data center becomes too humid, data centers run the risk of having condensation form. Moisture on motherboards, in hard drives, and in connecting sockets will quickly lead to damage, corrosion, and eventual equipment failure.
Too little humidity in the data center — When data center air becomes too dry, the risk of electrostatic discharge (ESD) quickly becomes elevated. The cool, low humidity air moving throughout the data center can potentially be a source of static electricity.
Adiabatic/evaporative humidification systems use mechanical energy to generate finely atomized water particles that are released into the air. This process doesn’t require thermal energy from an external source and no heat is added.
Perhaps the most notable benefit of adiabatic humidification is air cooling, making it an ideal part of a precision cooling solution for data centers or in spaces with an additional heat load. CEG offers a variety of adiabatic humidification systems from industry-leading manufacturers.

Pressurized water humidifiers
Isothermal/steam humidification systems use electricity or gas as an external heat source to boil water creating steam as water vapor is dispersed in the air. CEG offers a variety of Isothermal humidification systems as part of a comprehensive HVAC solution for facilities such as labs, IT rooms, and other sensitive environments.
