Calorex humidifiers help to protect valuable art
Six portable humidifiers supplied by Calorex Heat Pumps are playing a vital role in protecting valuable exhibits on display at the Turner Contemporary Gallery in Margate. The Century 4 humidifiers can be quickly brought into use to humidify the internal environment that is often dried out by heating systems during the winter months. They are used as a back-up to the in-house system.
Recent headline displays have included selected works of J. M. W. Turner, Rodin’s ‘The kiss’ and the works of contemporary artists such as Tracey Emin. There is also a heavy emphasis on community arts.
Century 4 units can humidify spaces of up to 400 m3 and have a high-output wick that uses capillary action to evaporate moisture, so the water is not heated. They have a 3-speed fan with high-speed boost and virtually silent night-time modes.
