Munters dehumidification provides efficient protection of items in archives without any costly heating and completely independent of outdoor weather conditions and fluctuations in relative humidity.
Items in archives are mostly insensitive to temperature levels whereas high and uncontrolled relative humidity is a parameter that causes damage to most materials. Private archives containing documents, artifacts and textiles through to military archives and magazines holding ammunition and weapons are affected by the consequences of high humidity.
Also temporary archive facilities like storage tents and shelters provide first class protection of stored electronics, documents, steel, vehicles, food or pharmaceutical products etc. when equipped with Munters dehumidifiers. Air-tight storage tents made from non-water permeable fabric need no insulation to form an ideal storage solution, and free from the need of heating a dehumidifier will secure a fully humidity-controlled environment – saving costly energy.
In a Munters dehumidified archive
- Products are stored at a constant and low relative humidity
- No corrosion, mold, mildew or fungus will occur or grow
- Packaging materials are protected against softening
- Meet PD5454:2012 standards (UK)
Heating can be replaced by dehumidification (if unmanned), saving up to 75% energy costs.
