Museums - Airfree
The effect of Time over Works of Art.
Museums contribute to the conservation of works of art , protecting a priceless historical and cultural heritage. Therefore, it is essential that museums have the best conditions to preserve the artistic creation, immortalizing the works of art as well as their authors, who contributed so much to the history of cities and countries.
But in Nature everything has its life cycle. And works of art also suffer from weather conditions, which affect their original look and beauty.
Works of art can be affected over the years by the following factors:
Presented in the form of stains with different colorations, which usually develop and multiply in the form of circles, damaging the image and changing the pH.
By direct action or by damp weather that absorbs dust, penetrating in the paper.
Tears and Holes
Caused by termites and moths, sometimes opening "tracks" on the paper.
Fungus spores are always present in the air and on objects. When the room temperature and humidity are suitable for germination, the fungus spores germinate and start to grow, contaminating books, clothes, documents and works of art. Mold or mildew can also have an adverse effect on people. Many fungi can severely irritate and inflame the lungs, causing irritation to the skin and eyes, as well as infections. Prolonged exposure to active mold in a closed area can damage the lungs, mucous membranes, cornea, respiratory tract, stomach, intestines and skin.
AIRFREE® AIR PURUFIERS;are up to 99% efficient in destroying airborne mold spores, bacteria, viruses, ozone, mite and dust allergens, and other airborne allergens derived from animals and pollen, and they are major allies in increasing quality of life through the air we breathe.
Specific benefits in Museums:
- Conservation of art collections;
- Health and comfort of visitors and employees;
- Aumento da produtividade dos funcionários e diminuição do absentismo;
- Prevention of lawsuits resulting from poor air quality.
Increased employee productivity and reduced absenteeism How do they work?
They dramatically reduce air pollution by burning the microorganisms. As a result, the contaminated air is drawn into the Airfree® ceramic core and destroyed at high temperatures. This air purification cycle is silent, requires no maintenance and is guaranteed by numerous tests
Efficient - Tested and approved in real environments (no simulations) at the best institutes around the world. Airfree® destroys any microorganism passing through the ceramic sterilizer, regardless of its size or hazard level.
Silent - Completely noiseless.
Exclusive - Internationally patented technology that is exclusive to Airfree® products, the only one that also reduces ozone concentrations.
Economic - No part replacement expenses or significant energy costs, since Airfree® consumes only 48w per hour.
Practical - Turn it on and forget about it, since the devices require no maintenance or cleaning.
No contraindications – Completely natural process which uses no radiation, chemical or toxic products, and do not interfere with the temperature or humidity of the environment.
Note! It does not emit ozone gas, considered a major cause of respiratory crises such as asthma, and which may also destroy lung tissue.
1. Are there any side effects?
No. Airfree’s new technology uses heat to purify the air. No side effects, no emissions, NO IONS, nor new particles are generated. Airfree® should be used in all homes and offices, quietly, constantly, and efficiently purifying the air.
2. Does Airfree eliminate bacteria and viruses?
Yes. Unlike the air filters in the market Airfree® is more efficient with the smallest microorganisms as they are easily carried by Airfree’s airflow into its heated ceramic core.
3. How does Airfree destroy dust mites?
Mould reduction in the environment causes reduction in the mould dependant dust mite population. Airfree also destroys the harmful toxins and fungus freed by dust mite feces that trigger respiratory allergies.
4. How does Airfree eliminate fungi?
As mentioned before, Airfree eliminates airborne microorganisms included fungi and spores. By eliminating spores new colonies are unlikely to develop, representing less future airborne spores.
5. How does Airfree® destroy viruses?
Those microscopic microorganisms are easily eliminated inside Airfree’s ceramic core capillaries. The temperature inside of Aifree’s capillaries is much higher than required to incinerate them. Airfree® is your greatest ally in respiratory disease prevention.
6. Does Airfree reduce tobacco smell?
Yes, Airfree reduces any kind of organic smell in the ambience including tobacco.
7. Does Airfree release any gas or chemical product?
No. Airfree’s sterilisation process is natural. Please check our website for conclusive tests regarding particles and ozone.
8. Does Airfree heat up a room?
No. Airfree does not noticeable increase room temperature. To have an idea 2 Airfrees plugged in the same room will contribute as much heat as the presence of one adult in that same room.
9. Does Airfree provoke any change in room’s the relative humidity?
10. Does Airfree need filter replacement?
11. Does Airfree consume a lot of energy?
No. Airfree’s consumption is just 52 Watts for P150, 50 Watts for P125, 48 Watts for P80, 45 Watts for P60, 50 Watts for E125, 48 Watts for E80 , 45 Watts for E60 and 40 Watts for E40.
12. Where do the microorganisms go after they are destroyed?
As all living organisms, microorganisms and their products are basically composed of carbon, oxygen and nitrogen. Since Airfree® reaches approx. 200º C, all the components are supposed to suffer a combustion process, which liberates carbon dioxide (the same product released by our respiration) and water. Some carbon (or ashes) may remain in the process. If there is some residual allergen left, we might consider that they suffer denaturation, a process resulting in loss of conformation and function. It should be noted that we are talking about reactions that occur in a microscopic level, so all these processes or by-products won’t be perceived. In this case, there is no need to worry about maintenance.
