Conservation of Value through Constant Humidity Levels
Humidity Levels in Museums, Archives and Exhibitions
Conservational demands on indoor air conditions require that the room temperature and humidity in museums and other areas are kept at a highly constant level. From an indoor climate point of view, the most important aspect of all is to ensure that moist air is prevented from condensing on the exhibits. But in many cases, rooms are not properly conditioned because they are not provided with the necessary supply of conditioned air by a central air conditioning and ventilation system – while some rooms are not conditioned at all. Dehumidifiers from AERIAL are ideally suited to cater for such demands.
AERIAL dehumidifiers do valuable (conservation of value) work in many well-known and also many less obvious places. In Cairo, for example, our units provide ideal humidity conditions in the pyramids and in various burial chambers.
Conserving the value of vintage cars and other vehicles
How can you create Californian conditions?
Cars and vehicles from California are known by experts to be relatively rust-free. They are normally in very good condition even after as long as 20 years. This has to do with the low levels of humidity there. Such low humidity prevents moisture from collecting in the vehicle’s cavities, corrosion from forming on metal parts, and wood, leather and other materials from rotting. Damage to vehicles due to moisture is caused by changes in the temperature and the humidity of the surrounding air, as well as by lack of air circulation.
Another cause of such damage is when the car is driven in damp weather or the rain. In such cases, the water or moisture film clinging to the vehicle and the whirled-up dust and dirt, which lodges itself in the car’s recesses and cavities, can quickly lead to corrosion. The same goes for the electrics, which can also start to corrode, especially the plugs and the contacts. What can then happen is the car won’t start. This in turn can lead to costly repairs and to parts having to be replaced because they have been damaged beyond repair.
A garage does not protect your vehicle against damage caused by moisture
It goes without saying that your car is well-protected against all sorts of weather when it is parked safely inside your garage. However, the moisture you have brought inside the garage when you parked your car is now locked away inside the garage too. In addition, more moisture caused by changes in the weather can also enter into the inside via the openings which normal garages have. A garage alone will not be enough to protect your car or other vehicle against corrosion. By setting up or installing an AERIAL dehumidifier, you can ensure that the air climate in your garage remains pleasantly dry. The air is dried and moisture is removed from the cavities, cracks and other concealed and hard-to-reach places of your vehicle. And at the same time the building itself, your tools, and any bikes or motorbikes which are parked in the garage are kept dry and protected against damage caused by moisture!
Let us advise you, as we have done countless classic car enthusiasts all over the world who are now among our happy customers. We provide bespoke solutions for larger collections, underground car parks and conservation businesses.
But conservation of value goes a lot further. AERIAL units carry out valuable dehumidification work in the following areas of application:
- Protecting organs and altars in churches
- In libraries
- In municipal and state archives
- For conserving items of value, documents and films
