MSC Moisture Domes
|270-004 Humidifcation Dome, closed, on suction platen|
Moisture treatments on fragile items like pastels, charcoals, and watercolors can be done with precision and ease with the MSC Moisture Dome. The MSC Moisture Dome retains moisture from an ultrasonic humidifier during treatments such as moisture relaxation, conditioning, wetting and relining. The clear acrylic curved dome attaches to the rear of any MSC Suction platen with quick-release stainless steel hinges. Each dome is approximately 43 cm (17 inches) in height. Four circular inspection ports 15.2 cm in diameter (6 inches) allow entry into the dome without releasing the entire moistened atmosphere. Additional inspection ports can be installed by special order. Removable air pistons support the dome when raised and keep it raised with no extra effort. Domes include an aluminum frame to protect the edges and prevent warping while raising and lowering.
• THE ACRYLIC DOME IS FOR MOISTURE APPLICATIONS ONLY. This dome is not suitable for fumigation applications or any other procedures involving the use of toxic chemicals.
• USE OF SUCTION WHILE THIS DOME IS DOWN WILL COLLAPSE THE DOME. Use of the dome in this manner is contrary to the operating instructions.

Mayline Electric Support Stand
|210-004 PCT-E Table, front view, Humidification Dome open|
This electric support stand allows full tilt or level use for any MSC Suction Platen. The height adjusts to the most comfortable working position with a switch that can be mounted to the underside of the suction platen. Locking caster wheels provide stability and mobility for the unit. A suction platen can be connected to the stand with four nuts and bolts. The 260-002 International model includes a step-down transformer for use with local power requirements.
• Domestic: 120 VAC, 1Ø 240 watts

MSC Control Console for Paper and Textile Conservation
|250-002 Dual Motor Console|
|250-002 Dual Motor Console, side view, open, with Charcoal Console Filter and Drip pan|
The MSC Control Console contains one or two motors, depending on the size and use of the suction platen to which it will be connected. The dual motor console produces an unconstrained airflow of approximately 339 meters cubed per hour - m3/h (200 cubic feet per minute - CFM). It can sustain vacuum levels up to 2500 mm H2O (100 inches H2O). Dual motor consoles are excellent for porous materials like textiles. Each console contains a variable speed controller, a vacuum gage, an airbrush and air compressor, a liquid catch basin, an activated charcoal filter for fume capture, a noise muffler, casters, and an exhaust hose that can connect to a fume hood or outside vent. The MSC Control Console is constructed of high-density polyethylene (HDPE), so it is easy to clean with soap and water. The suction motors in the MSC Control Console are durable, long lasting and maintenance free. The motors are rated at 700 hours of continuous use. Each unit has circuit breakers to protect the motors.
• Single Motor Console: 120 VAC, 50/60 Hz 1800 watts
• Dual Motor Console: 220-240 VAC, 50/60 Hz 2990 watts
Regular maintenance can extend the life of a suctions table for many years. MuseuM SERVICES CORPORATION offers replacements for parts that suffer wear and tear during regular use of the suction table. Activated Charcoal Filters and Dome Lift Pistons are east to replace; Compressors, Motor Controllers and Suction Motors may require the assistance of an electrician.

|255-001 Tiger-Vac Vacuum Cleaner|
|255-003 Micro Tool Kit|
The Tiger-Vac vacuum cleaner has a powerful bypass suction motor at almost the same performance level as the single motor MSC Control Console. Vacuum levels up to 2500 mm H2O (100 inches H2O or 25 kPa). The suction motor produces an unconstrained airflow of approximately 178 meters cubed per hour - m3/h (100 cubic feet per minute - CFM). The motor controller allows fine adjustment of the vacuum and airflow. The Tiger-Vac Vacuum comes equipped with a HEPA filter for mold removal. Each Tiger-Vac Vacuum cleaner comes with one #4 tool kit containing four attachments, a Micro Vacuum Tool Kit and an exhaust hose that can connect to a fume hood or outside vent.

|293-002 Suction Diaphragm Material|
Replacement supplies for suction table treatments.
Polyethylene Twill Screens provide a barrier between the aluminum suction platen and the object being treated. They also increase airflow underneath the object. When the twill is soiled, it should be disposed of and replaced with new screen.
Suction Diaphragm Material is a reusable membrane that is placed over the surface of the table to create a vacuum. It can be cut and manipulated as needed. When it is damaged or worn out, it should be replaced as well.
Teflon Tape is used to hold down the twill screening on a suction table. It has a teflon, no-stick surface to prevent artifacts from becoming caught on it as they are manipulated on the surface of the suction platen.
A Vacuum Gauge allows you to keep track of the vacuum level inside of the platen. If a Tiger-Vac is the vacuum source for a table, a Vacuum Gauge will allow accurate adjustment of the variable speed control to the desired vacuum level.
