Passive Microclimate Environmental Control
While simple in theory, in practice, passive microclimate installations are most successful when a number of factors are considered. Foremost amongst them are:
- the humidity level and range desired
- the ambient conditions outside the enclosure
- the size of the enclosure
- the materials used to construct the enclosure
- the leakage rate of the enclosure
- the duration of the exhibition
- the composition and size of the artefact
- the type and quantity of passive buffer (such as ProSorb)
ProSorb Humidity Buffer Cassette
We are proud to be the North American representative for PROsorb humidity stabilizers.
PROsorb is a state-of-the-art buffering compound for humidity control in museum showcases, and is especially effective at humidity levels commonly found in museum display environments.
