Case Study: Historic College Park Aviation Museum

This historic aviation museum chose Daikin Trailblazer® air-cooled chillers and Vision® indoor air handlers for their prized treasures.

An affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, the College Park Aviation Museum is located on the grounds of College Park Airport. It is the world’s oldest continually operated airport and is a destination for history buffs and aviation enthusiasts. In 1977, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places.

Maintaining humidity in museums is often critical because it has a direct effect on artifact preservation. The aviation museum’s existing direct expansion (DX) system was increasingly unreliable and approaching the end of its service life. It was putting the museum’s ability to curate the valuable displays at risk and by extension, the museum’s affiliation with the Smithsonian.

Museum personnel decided that a solution was needed quickly and only the best equipment and system would serve its needs. They chose the Daikin Trailblazer® air-cooled chillers and Vision® indoor air handlers to enable a best-in-class system that provides precision humidity and temperature control for their prized treasures.
