The customised HVAC system now has two parts- one is the humidifier which helps in introducing humidity when the RH inside the storage room is below 45% and second is the Centrifugal fan which helps in lowering the RH when it goes above 55%. The system automatically cuts off when the RH reaches the appropriate level. Additionally, the size of the compactors and flat files were customised and manufactured according to the size of the archival boxes consisting of photographs and the large size Mewar paintings, and the available area of the storage rooms, was kept in consideration.
