International museum association recognizes Camfil

Camfil was recently presented with the Diplomat Award by the International Association of Museum Facility Administrators (IAMFA) for "significantly advancing IAMFA's mission to make exceptional contributions to the state of design, construction, operation and maintenance of cultural facilities around the globe".

The award was given at the Annual IAMFA Conference, held this year in Scotland. It was presented to Dr. Chris Ecob, Camfil's Global Business Manager for Molecular Filtration, and signed by IAMFA board members from institutions in Washington D.C., Los Angeles, Melbourne, Edinburgh, London and Chicago. The conference is IAMFA's platform for exchanging ideas about the latest technologies for cultural facilities.

Camfil has supported the IAMFA as long-term sponsors since 2008 and a number of IAMFA members have referenced Camfil for providing meaningful savings and quality products that contribute to their energy reduction targets and sustainability agenda. Through close collaboration with IAMFA members, Camfil supplies high-performance carbon filters and delivers expert advice on applications.

"Camfil manufactures and supplies low-energy, clean air solutions to museums and cultural establishments across the world and this accolade is a true testament to our sustainable products and services ethos. We are extremely proud to have been presented with the Diplomat Award and hold this recognition in high regard," commented Chris Ecob.

From the British Library to the Uffizi

Over the years, Camfil has designed and supplied activated carbon filtration systems to preserve the art treasures and artefacts of many prestigious museums and galleries, including the Uffizi in Florence, the British Library in London, the State Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg and the Getty Villa in Los Angeles, California.

Ventilation systems can introduce external particulate or molecular pollutants in museums, especially in city centre locations. Sulphur dioxide blackens old paintings, oxides of nitrogen corrode bronzes and stone sculptures, and ozone accelerates the ageing and deterioration of paper, textile and other organic materials.

Camfil's molecular filters provide a very cost-effective method of controlling these harmful gases. Various grades of material can be used in filters to meet specific preventative conservation requirements. For further information, click here:

Energy-saving solutions

Camfil also helps cultural facility administrators reduce their energy costs and carbon footprint by recommending a selection of the right filters with the least flow resistance, or pressure drop, to reduce power consumption of the ventilation system and improve operating economy. Camfil also educates museum personnel and other building owners about the substantial benefits of replacing existing filtration assets with low-energy air filters.
