Preserving history: Dehumidification for household cultural institutions

The British Museum, one of the largest and most comprehensive museums in the world, houses over eight million works illustrating human culture and history. This vast collection requires carefully controlled environmental conditions to prevent damage, so when their permanent dehumidification system unexpectedly broke down, raising relative humidity levels to a harmful 80%, they urgently contacted our company to help.

Within 24 hours, we delivered a fleet of our compact yet powerful FD40 Series 2 dehumidifiers on a three-week hire. Despite the enormous volume of the museum’s galleries and storage facilities, the FD40s units quickly brought the relative humidity down to the target level of 50%. The customer was “overly happy” with the fast delivery and performance of the units, which protected fragile artefacts while blending into the background with their modern, low-profile design.

Andrews provides tailored solution for underground tank drying application

Andrews Sykes has been a trusted heating and dehumidification specialist for decades – and with good reason. Recently, a Scottish water company faced a challenge with a tank that needed quick drying, and they turned to our knowledgeable sales engineers for a solution.

With the client opting for a free site survey, our engineer promptly visited the location in West Kilbride.

Upon arrival, it was discovered that the tank itself was below ground, making accessibility slightly more limited than anticipated. Challenging, perhaps, but certainly nothing we couldn’t contend with!

Filtration Sensation: Kent hospital benefits from AC/HEPA combo solution

Maidstone Hospital faced a critical need for infection control measures and temporary cooling, with the requirement surfacing long before temperatures rose. To address this challenge, they reached out to Andrews Sykes months in advance. Initially, we supplied 38 modified PAC 22 air conditioning units fitted with High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filtrations. This case study examines how we accommodate the needs of an NHS Trust, tailoring our solution to ensure government standards were met.

In early March, Maidstone Hospital contacted us regarding the procurement of air conditioning units that could function alongside their existing cooling systems while adhering to infection control regulation. Our popular split-type units were fitted with HEPA filtration to create a safer and healthier environment for patients and healthcare workers. By efficiently filtering and removing harmful airborne particles while delivering the temperature relief that has become so essential during the hotter months of the year, our equipment offered a double-edged solution to a problem that healthcare facilities face every year.
