1 DATA CENTERS Protect Your Best in Class Technology With Ours CLEAN AIR SOLUTIONS

2 COSTLY FAN ENERGY REDUCED BY CAMFIL PREMIUM PRODUCTS = COST SAVINGS Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) is an important metric tool that measures and tracks where and how improvements can be made in efficiency performance of the electrical and mechanical infrastructure the lower the ratio, the better the efficiency. A PUE ratio can be dramatically lowered by the reduction of electrical energy draw, or fan energy in the data center s cooling system. The efficiency and energy curves of fans used in the cooling systems is far from constant. There can be a difference of 30% or more between peak and low efficiency in fan working range. Filter pressure drop is the driving force behind fan energy expenditures. If low cost filters are installed, pressure drop will cause the system to lose efficiency, sending fan energy costs soaring, which in turn will show a rise in the PUE ratio. Regardless of the type of cooling or AHU system installed in a facility, to manage pressure drop and maintain as close to peak fan efficiency as possible, it s imperative to evaluate the choice of filters used. When you consider the number of filters needed annually in a system, the guaranteed efficiency and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) should be the key drivers for determining which filter selection is the best solution. The majority of the energy consuption in your facility is the data center. This chart represents the energy survey of a 21-story office building. It s a fact Data Centers consume an exorbitant amount of energy. With Camfil, data centers have documented six figure savings in total cost of ownership. Camfil s Farr 30/30, Durafil ES 2 and Hi-Flo ES filters have Energy Cost Index (ECI) ratings of five stars the highest performance rating available. Camfil uses a proprietary blend of fine fibers that uses a mechanical particle capture principle which does not require an electret charge. This offers the longest life and lowest average pressure drop while in service over the life of the filter...guaranteed! Low cost, coarse fiber filters, which incorporate an electret charge to operate, can drop in efficiency and increase in pressure drop in a short period of time resulting in increased fan energy consumption and shorter filter life. Although the upfront cost for these filters may be lower, the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is higher because they are on the negative side of Life Cycle Cost (LCC) values when compared to the fine fiber media used in Camfil products. Camfil s low average pressure drop filters allow AHUs and fans to be downsized, saving operating costs and capital costs on initial installation. Conversely, if a system isn t optimized at design, Camfil filters can replace substandard filters, or can be retrofitted with FastFrames or Multi-Track hardware for short term payback. These are just some of the factors that are considered in Camfil s LCC Software (see page 3). Camfil offers a free LCC analysis which is performed by our exclusive distributor in your area. Camfil s longer lasting, fine fiber filters extend equipment life and reduce maintenance. Data firms consume energy Camfil has documented significant energy savings for our data center customers, in some cases, by as much as six figures annually. According to DOE statistics, the data center electricity usage of 30 billion kilowatt hours, in 2001, soared to 100 billion kilowatt hours by Analysts project this figure will quadruple over the next three years. Business enablement platforms bear increasing demands for cloud access this drive will push mega data center production to jump eight times from the standards of today by the year FARR 30/30 With its industry leading 5-Star ECI Rating, the Camfil Farr 30/30 sets the standard for medium efficiency air filtration. When used as a prefilter, a stand-alone HVAC filter, or as the main filter in custom data room air conditioning units, the Farr 30/30 will remove nuisance dusts and staining particles, and increase the life of downstream final filters by removing contaminants that shorten the life of final filters. Using a mechanical efficiency to provide MERV 8 and MERV 8-A performance levels, the Farr 30/30 will maintain its efficiency throughout the life of the filter. LCC SOFTWARE The selection of air filters for data processing facilities is a critical decision when considering filter effectiveness in providing a clean environment. An almost equally critical factor is what a filter will cost over its lifetime in the system, or its Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). There are hidden costs to air filters, with energy usage at the top of the scale. This is followed by associated labor to service the filters, disposal costs and carbon footprint. Camfil can predict your TCO using our proprietary Life Cycle Costing (LCC) software. It can also predict the optimum filter change-out point to optimize energy usage and filter life based upon the actual operating parameters of your facility. DURAFIL ES 2 The Durafil ES 2 offers high efficiency particle removal down into the sub-micron particle range to protect the most sensitive semiconductor and electromechanical equipment from contamination. Its glass mat media maintains efficiency throughout the life of the filter and its increased media area ensures maintained low pressure drop and longer filter life. The Durafil ES 2 can save 40% or more in energy expenditures when compared to competitive products. Inputs include operating velocities, filter performance data pulled from a comprehensive information database of competitive filters, energy cost per kwh, number of hours of operation, labor cost projections, disposal costs and information related to total carbon footprint. Your local Camfil representative can run a data center specific LCC analysis at your convenience to see how you can save thousands, even tens of thousands of dollars a year. HI-FLO ES Life Cycle Costing software is a proprietary modeling tool developed by Camfil that allows users to evaluate and optimize air filter selection and change out points to reduce total cost of ownership. The Hi-Flo ES uses a Camfil-exclusive high loft micro fine glass media to capture particles down into the sub-micron particle range to protect data center equipment from contamination. The Hi-Flo ES may be used as the only filter in a single-stage system eliminating pressure drop and service requirements associated with two-stage filtration systems that require a prefilter. Available in MERV 11, MERV 13, MERV 14 and MERV 15, its MERV and relative MERV-A testing values are equivalent ensuring that performance is maintained throughout filter life. 2 Camfil Clean Air Solutions Camfil Clean Air Solutions 3

3 OPTIMIZATION ENERGY SAVINGS Outside Air Intake Plenum Mixing Area Farr 30/30 Fine Fiber And Durafil ES2 Filters Cooling Coils Condensing Coils Fan Arrays Exhaust Air Plenum Supply Air Plenum Misting Coils Supply Air Shaft Misting Eliminator Exhaust Fans & Louvers In most data center applications, Camfil recommends MERV 13 filters for the best balance of particle removal efficiency, low energy expenditures and a long filter life. Depending upon individual facility considerations, common configurations may include the Hi-Flo ES as the only filter stage or a Camfil Farr 30/30 with a Durafil ES 2 for two-stage designs. Data centers have critical cleanliness requirements, which is why Camfil recommended filters also have a MERV-A equivalent to their published MERV this ensures sustained filter performance over the entire life of the filters. Coarse fiber, or synthetic media products, lose efficiency over time often sacrificing filter efficiency resulting in a dirtier environment. Outside Air Louvers & Dampers Return Air Dampers Exhaust Air Ceiling Plenum Server Racks Hot Aisle Containment Panels 5-Star ECI Rating Camfil s filters are rated as 5-Star filters through the Energy Cost Index (ECI) program. Based upon a five-star scale, the Energy Cost Index is an indicator of what a filter will cost over its lifetime. The best rating five stars indicates that the filter is the most energy-efficient, longest lasting filter available. Farr 30/30 Durafil ES 2 Hi-Flo ES No PreFilter Necessary FASTFRAME The Camfil FastFrame for built-up air filter banks does not require cumbersome fasteners or clips to install filters into the frame. It accepts any headered air filter, including pads, pleats, bags, boxes and v-bank filters. It can also be used for two-stage filtration applications. Air bypass is eliminated as the air filters snap into place against a replaceable frame-to-filter seal ensuring less than ½ of 1% leakage across the filter and frame combination all of the air seen by the system will be treated by the system. The FastFrame is available in 24-inch by 24-inch, 12-inch by 24-inch, 20-inch by 24-inch and 20-inch by 20-inch sizes to accommodate a variety of airflow requirements. Existing systems can be retrofitted with Fast Frame or Multi-Track hardware. 4 Camfil Clean Air Solutions Camfil Clean Air Solutions 5

4 ON-SITE TESTING CAMFIL CAMCLEANER The Camfil CamCleaner provides clean air to data center areas that may require a higher level of cleanliness than the rest of the facility.
