Silica Gel Reconditioning
We offer two systems for rapid reconditioning of gel. The small unit will handle up to 3kg of bulk gel per batch. The large unit is designed for reconditioning up to about 50kg of tubes, pouches, or cartridges and comes with a small convection oven, scales, and Extech RHT20 Datalogger. This is very convenient for traveling exhibitions where gel may need to be reconditioned on the road. These units are designed to work with our online reconditioning calculator.
SmallCorp also reconditions silica gel for our customers. Please call for details.
SmallCorp is pleased to be a distributor of Preservatech’s Active Microclimate Generators. The PMCG Microclimate Generator regulates the humidity in your case without the need for water and the associated filling and emptying of reservoirs. Once the machine is set up, humidity within the display case will be maintained for years. PMCG devices are able to maintain a relative humidity from below 17% up to 70% at ambient temperatures of 32°F to 70°F.
One unit is required per case. Supplementary units may be added to increase capacity. PMCG units are very quiet, use very little power source and do not require special ventilation.
Three models are available:
· DD - Dehumidifying only
· HH - Humidifying only
· DH - Humidifying and Dehumidifying
Different power levels are available to account for varying case sizes.
