Iconic exhibit Dippy the dinosaur has been replaced during the re-vamp

London’s Natural History Museum (NHM) maintenance workshops have undergone a full upgrade thanks to Fercell Engineering.

As part of its 10-year modernisation programme, NHM called on Fercell to install a new dust extraction and centralised ducting system.

Two newly supplied dust extractors were installed, with the right-hand side unit equipped with a diverter valve so that either the down-draft suction table or the other machine tools are serviced at any one time.

Fercell decided that the best fit for the NHM’s ventilation system would be a ‘Kwik-fix’ ducting system, which is specifically designed and suited for industries that require the use of a ductwork system for the transportation and/or collection of particles.

Mark Fletcher, Fercell managing director, said: “We are honoured to have been involved with the 10-year modernisation programme at the Natural History Museum. The main aim and goal behind this new system we have refurbished and reinstalled, is that it should last another lifetime and be upgraded as and when needed.”
