For those whose budgets do not allow the purchase of a unit outright short-term hire of the Depulvera is now available.
This power-driven, automatic book cleaner has been designed to give consistent high quality cleaning with the last book of the day being cleaned as well as the first. The Depulvera is compact and simple to use and can be operated by conservators or library technicians in all but the narrowest book stack aisles. The purpose of this is to allow cleaning to be undertaken close to where the book is stored thus saving the need for additional moving of the collection.
The Depulvera is mobile, self-contained and features a separate HEPA vacuum unit to provide a safe environment for the operator protecting against dangerous mould spores and pathogens when cleaning ancient and fragile rare books and manuscripts.
