Subject: Storage cases with environmental control

Storage cases with environmental control

From: Tom Chase <chaset>
Date: Monday, August 22, 1994
Some people have built individual storage cases with environmental
controls in them.  Stefan Michalski of CCI is one that comes to mind. At
the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, Arthur Beale has engineered the
environmental conditioning separately of the new Chinese Galleries.
Another useful contact would also be Steve Weintraub in New York.
Kennedy-Trimnell make a small environmental HVAC Unit which can be
attached to a sealed case or cabinet to make a self-contained system.  I
don't have any personal experience with the Kennedy-Trimnell Units, but
Arthur B. does!

I think that this sort of approach is more widely needed, especially
with utility prices going up all the time!
