Museums, art galleries, archives and archival exhibits play a vital role in cultures around the world, exhibiting and protecting priceless artifacts. The preservation industry has distinct indoor air quality requirements to prevent deterioration in the life of these treasures.
Acute attention to the preservation of art and valuable collections includes managing light, temperature, and humidity levels. Just as critical is the control of gaseous contaminants found in the air. Even small amounts of pollutants have a devastating cumulative effect over time.
The Purafilter® is a combination chemical and particulate filter that integrates Purafil® patented dry-scrubbing media into a non-woven fiber matrix. Partnered with an HVAC system, Purafilters help meet building codes and regulations requiring outdoor air cleaning for PM-10, PM-2.5, and ozone. They replace existing particulate filters in retrofit or rework applications as well as being used in new construction. Also available in a high efficiency option.
Made for environments with high concentrations of gaseous contaminants, canisters provide effective gas removal for cleaner air. Available in galvanized steel, stainless steel or high-impact plastic housing with the ability to fit existing holding frames or Purafil’s custom equipment.
