Asset Valuation and Removal
We provide accurate valuations for your data center assets and manage the removal of various equipment types, including:
Our team has experience handling a wide range of manufacturers and models such as CAT, Cummins, Generac, and Kohler. We electrically disconnect, drain the fuel, prep the unit for loading, and lift it via crane. We also provide credit for the generator’s sales value to offset project costs.
Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS)
We expertly handle UPSs from various manufacturers and models, ensuring proper electrical disconnection, removal and palletization of batteries, and removal of the unit from the data center. Credit for the UPS sales value is also provided.
Computer Room Air Conditioners (CRAC) Units and Condensers
Our team is experienced in working with several manufacturers and models of CRAC units and condensers. We work with Vertiv, Liebert, Stulz, Data Aire, Move-N-Cool, and others. We decommission and remove them from the building by disconnecting, removing refrigerant, and rigging them out of the building, offering credit for their sales value.
Power Distribution Units (PDUs), Server Racks, Raised Flooring, and Electrical Gear
We manage the removal of all these essential data center components, ensuring safe and efficient disassembly and removal, while providing credit for their sales value.
Fire Suppression Equipment
We handle various types of fire suppression gases, including FM200, Halon 1301, and 1211, and safely remove and transport them. We also manage the reintegration of wet or dry sprinkler systems back into the building after the data-specific fire suppression gas removal.
Electrical Switchgear and Transformers
At USA Decom, we specialize in the removal of electrical switchgear and transformers as part of our data center decommissioning services. Our experienced team handles the disconnection and removal of various components, including ATS (Automatic Transfer Switch), switchgear sections, panelboards, transformers, bus ducts, bus plugs, circuit breakers, disconnects, fuses, load banks, maintenance bypass, motor control centers, rectifiers, TVSS (Transient Voltage Surge Suppressor), and Variable Frequency Drives (VFD).
We ensure that all electrical equipment is safely disconnected, removed, and properly disposed of in compliance with industry regulations. Additionally, if any of the equipment holds sales value, we provide credit towards the project to help offset expenses.
Server racks play a crucial role in data center infrastructure, and USA Decom has extensive experience in their removal. We carefully disconnect all associated cables and equipment stored within the racks. Our team then proceeds to remove the racks from the data center facility, ensuring minimal disruption to the surrounding environment.
We prioritize the safe handling and transportation of the racks and make sure to properly dispose of any materials or components that cannot be repurposed or recycled. By entrusting USA Decom with the removal of server racks, you can have peace of mind knowing that the process will be handled efficiently and in compliance with industry standards.

Our skilled technicians disconnect the equipment, carefully dismantle it, and remove it from the premises. We ensure that all refrigerants, oils, and other substances are safely recovered and disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner, adhering to industry regulations.
Additionally, we take the necessary steps to restore the area after the equipment’s removal, which may involve repairing concrete pads, removing abandoned piping or equipment, and restoring landscaping. By entrusting the removal of cooling equipment to USA Decom, you can be confident that the process will be handled professionally and with a focus on minimizing any impact on the surrounding environment.
