Milwaukee Public Museum

Project Challenge:
When the conservators at the Milwaukee Public Museum were working on a project in the storage area of the basement that involved organic solvents, they were in need of a cost effective way to protect their health and facilitate the removal of the solvent from the area.

Project Solution:
The Extract-All™ 987 Series was selected to support the conservators as they cleaned the museum’s industrial machine collection. The mobility and size of the extraction arms, the flexibility and size of the machine, and the budget conscious cost were perfectly suited for the heavy and cumbersome typewriters and business machines being worked on during this project. The team also recognized the future benefits of the 987 Series for work on other three-dimensional and challenging projects.

“The Extract-All 987 received positive reviews from our Industrial Hygienist. The system helped us safely complete our project and will continue to support our work when we are cleaning mummies and other artifacts that can’t be positioned under our
laboratory hoods.”
