Preserve the fine art of clean air in museums and other cultural institutions. Our high-efficiency particle filters can help you conserve sensitive objects – and preserve the health of staff and visitors – for generations to come.
The very existence of museums, libraries, archives and other cultural institutions depends on their ability to preserve and protect historical items. These items would otherwise be lost or destroyed in a natural environment.
But many objects face the risk of deterioration – and irreversible damage – from internal and external sources of contaminants like dust, gas, chemicals, light and humidity.
Good indoor air quality also benefits staff and visitors, who might be affected by breathing difficulties or eye irritation.
High-quality HVAC systems with an air filtration system that can eliminate tiny particulates are therefore vital to preserving the health of museum workers and visitors, as well as your priceless collections.
Internal and external sources of contaminants include:
With the combined knowledge of conservationists and ventilation system experts, you can select the best combination of filters to achieve a controlled environment, even with limited resources.
As a leading expert in molecular filtration, Camfil can help with your air filtration strategy. We have designed and supplied activated carbon filtration systems to preserve treasures found in prestigious museums and galleries around the world, including the Uffizi in Florence, the British Library in London and Moderna Museet in Stockholm.
Our air monitoring services can determine the exact nature of your building’s pollutants. We consider the types of artifacts and collections stored in your facility and help you to implement the right solutions.
Vitrines or glass cabinets are used to display and protect artifacts in a museum. Over time, contamination from material outgassing may damage the surfaces of the priceless items. Air cleaners and molecular filters integrated into the cabinets ensure total protection from VOC, and corrosive gases, and hinder possible surface degradation.
Archives are meant for the long term preservation of books, paper or films/pellicles. While damaging particles are often removed in AHU supplying air to archives, bookshelves made of wood as well as stored items may release acidic compounds resulting in serious local degradation. Clean air solutions are necessary to avoid the accumulation of damaging contaminants in archives.
Customers view dusty goods as damaged goods. Cleaner air in storage locations is a competitive advantage. Reducing dust will bring many benefits in cleaning costs, energy savings and healthier employees.
Museums, galleries and archives bring historical objects and the public together, and preserve objects for future generations. Make the removal of airborne contamination an important part of the preservation strategy.
Customers want to eat at restaurants that control food safety and dining area cleanliness. Eliminate food preparation odours and particulates, and decrease the possibility of airborne food contamination and fire hazards from airborne oil vapors.
Protect people, processes, products and equipment while keeping maintenance and energy costs low by keeping air handling units unclogged.
The air you breathe as an influential factor shaping your creative thoughts. A study suggests that the quality of the air in our environment might play a crucial role in our ability to think creatively. In essence, the very air around us could be a silent catalyst for innovative thinking.Take a breath Innovation Technology and Research Commercial and Public buildings Air quality
Rigorous testing of a product during its development phase is ultimately about being able to guarantee a certain level of performance. This is, of course, also true for high quality air filters like Camfil’s. And the way these products are tested has always been changing and evolving.
What are some of the challenges moving forward to achieve healthy and energy-efficient indoor air environments? And what are some of the new air filtration solutions that could potentially become a reality in the years to come?
Why is ventilation so important, how does it work and what factors ensure a healthy and productive indoor air environment in our buildings?
The air in our buildings is often 2-5 times more polluted, and in some cases, even a hundred times more polluted than the air outside. So, where do the pollutants in the indoor air come from and how do we mitigate their impact?
The City family of air purifiers is an excellent choice when you are looking for a solution that will deliver consistent performance and a high level of efficiency throughout its lifetime. A premium way of supplementing the air filters in your ventilation system to achieve clean and healthy indoor air.
Not all people who purchase our products are experts in air filtration and they shouldn’t have to be either. The purpose of Camfil City is to give everyone a chance to learn the basics of what our clean air solutions can do for them.
CamCarb VG modules with loose-fill media are robust solutions suited for make-up air (outdoor air) and recirculation air systems. The primary use is the control of acidic gases that are responsible for the corrosion of electronics and electrical equipment in heavy process industries such as pulp and paper mills, petrochemical refineries, mining and metal refining operations, and wastewater treatment plants.
Some of the effects of corrosion include a significant deterioration of natural and historic monuments. Air pollution causes corrosion, and it’s becoming worse worldwide. Learn how to protect your equipment.
Cold weather and winter holidays make the warm, entertaining confines of a museum an attractive prospect. To keep the contents of these artefact filled buildings in good condition, preserving often decades of history.
