Water treatment for Facebook datacenter

EUROWATER has supplied and installed a water treatment plant for Facebook's server farm in the northern part of Sweden. To make the server farm as efficient as possible, cooling with water atomization was chosen instead of more traditional cooling methods. One of the benefits of water atomization is to achieve a high humidity, thus reducing static electricity in the server room.

The water treatment plant can supply a water quality with conductivities down to 5 μS/cm and consists of 3 parallel lines with filtration through activated carbon, softening and demineralization.

In order to reduce the microbiological growth in the water, two UV disinfection units have been installed.
