TTK Leak Detection Solutions for Efficiently Detecting Leaks in Data Center Cooling Systems


The Critical Role of Leak Detection in Data Center Cooling Systems

Data centers, pivotal in digital infrastructure, rely on precise cooling systems to prevent equipment overheating and ensure optimal performance. These intricate networks of pipes, often running beneath raised floors or above raised ceilings, pose significant risks if leaks remain undetected. Any leakage can result in severe consequences as damaging servers and disrupting operations. Moreover, water intrusion in technical areas poses a risk of short circuits, potentially sparking destructive fires. 

Detecting leaks beneath the raised floor, especially within cooling systems, is pivotal. These areas house vital cooling infrastructure crucial for temperature regulation and preventing hardware failures. Prompt identification of leaks under the raised floor ensures early intervention, mitigating potential damage to crucial systems, and averting disruptions that could impede data center functionality. Early detection not only protects hardware but also upholds the data center's reliability, averting costly downtime and ensuring uninterrupted service provision.

Selecting the Right System

Choosing an appropriate system is paramount. A leak detection system is often based on sensing cables and leak monitoring panels.

Sensing Cables:

Systems employing dust-resistant advanced sensing cables offer optimal protection. The space under raised floors can accumulate dust, posing challenges for sensing cables to detect solely water and not conductive dust or condensation, leading to "nuisance alarms". To mitigate such alarms and ensure reliable detection, it's advisable to select cables integrating independent microcontrollers on individual cable lengths. TTK's addressable sensing cable stands out thanks to two features:

  • Its patented design detects water ingress while remaining undisturbed by dust or conductive residues.
  • The embedded microcontroller enhances protection by tolerating surface pollution.

Leak Monitoring Panels:

TTK offers a range of detection control units, including the versatile FG-NET digital monitoring panel, providing an all-in-one leak detection solution. The FG-NET offers fully mapped, multiple simultaneous leak locations accurate to 1m across up to 500 lengths of sensing cables, coupled with advanced alarm systems and TTK's management software, TTKweb™.
