X-Ray Storage Needs Andrews Dehumidification Hire

When handling X-ray films in areas of high humidity, it is crucial to provide dehumidification to prevent any excessive moisture causing irreversible damage. High humidity can promote mould growth and ferrotyping which will deteriorate and decolour the filmed sheets. A specialist document storage company was requested by one of its existing clients to control the humidity levels within set parameters whilst storing x-ray films. The requirement was to ensure long term protection for these radiographs. The storage area – located in Somerset – had a created a special area within their building, which was sectioned off to prevent unauthorised access and designed specifically for this type of storage. Andrews Dehumidification Hire was contacted to help provide the perfect solution. Once the call had been received a full site survey was conducted to advise the ideal solution.
