You may wish to consider using a Micro Climate Generator to feed a
constant flow of tempered air to your exhibit cases. The Constant
Volume Generator supplies tempered air through a small hose to up to
6000 cubic feet of display or storage cabinets. As there is constant
positive pressure, the cases can be "leaky" and still maintain the
correct humidity. The MCT system will ensure constant humidity
levels in the cases regardless of temperature and moisture
variations in the museum space, and will also "flush" off-gassing
from the case and enclosed objects. More information and links may
