DriSteem to Host a Webinar on Protecting Artifacts and Patrons at Museums

Eden Prairie, MN – August 19, 2021 - DRI-STEEM Corporation (DriSteem), the leading manufacturer of humidification, evaporative cooling, and water treatment products, announced today that they will be hosting a free webinar, which will focus on humidification systems for museums. The webinar is scheduled for August 31, 2021 at 10:30 AM CST and will be presented by Randall Potter, DriSteem Business Development Manager. 

Museums around the globe house a broad range of objects from fossilized remains and prehistoric artifacts to modern art, film materials and textiles. Regardless of the specific artifact, the ultimate mission of a museum is preservation, which is why one of the first things to consider in preserving artifacts is the stability and consistency of the museum’s indoor climate. It is more evident than ever, especially since the COVID epidemic, that indoor climate and quality of air has reinforced and brought to light the importance of the occupants' health and safety.

“This year more than ever we have learned how important air quality is. Humidification levels are critical to help stop the spread of virus bacteria, etc.  What people do not realize is that proper humidification levels are critical to preserving paintings, sculptures, wood, etc.  Too much fluctuation of temperature or humidification in either direction can destroy these artifacts. This webinar is to help museum curators be proactive and educate them in their options for controlling humidity,” said Valerie Bradt, Communications Manager at DriSteem. 

This free webinar will thoroughly address topics including:

  • Preserving artifact material stability
  • Indoor climate stability
  • Materials affected most
