Large, multi-function willard suction table for sale. This is a rare
opportunity to acquire such a large and well maintained vacuum

The surface is 82 by 124 inches. The suction table is from 1990 but
it almost looks new and certainly functions as it did the very first
day. It comes with its original brochure and instructions. We are
selling it only because we are moving into smaller premises.


    The hand ground perforated work surface is mounted on a sturdy
    powder-coated box steel frame with lockable castors. An inclined
    instrument panel, housing the control components, is situated on
    one of the long sides

Standard Features:

    Suction is achieved with a high volume, direct drive dual
    impeller exhauster. Motor speed is variable and electronically
    controlled with a finger operated dial. The digital readout is
    in Millibar steps.

    Heated work surface is achieved with the proven Willard heating
    system, which provides a highly reliable, accurate and above all
    even temperature across the entire table work surface with a
    separate temperature setting dial and a temperature readout on
    the control panel.

    Edge heating: Perimeter mounted elements maintain an even
    temperature across the working area from the centre to the edges
    of an object to ensure even bonding and minimum distortion. A
    separate temperature setting dial is mounted on the control
    panel and all heating circuits are controlled by accurate, fast
    reacting electronic thermostats with sensors situated:
    immediately below the perforated work surface.

Additional Features:

    Duct Heating prevents condensation of water within the ductwork.
    Insulated heating circuits warm the flow of re-circulated,
    moisture laden air to ensure an evenly controlled supply. This
    feature also helps dry the table internally after use.

    Full air circulation: Multi-layered ducting system allows a
    consistent supply of re-circulated air to the object, whilst
    maintaining the main holding (suction) pressure. Rows of closely
    spaced ducting directly below the work surface have positive and
    negative pressures which conduct conditioned air through and
    along the object in contact with the surface. A dedicated high
    volume circulation blower feeds the system, reversing at
    intervals to ensure even distribution of conditioned air. The
    air circulation system can also be used to dry an object in
    place on the table using ambient air.

    Humidification:  High capacity evaporative humidifier supplies a
    stream of moistened air at a selected% RH for even, controlled
    relaxation of textiles or canvases. This facility utilises
    custom made sensors situated directly below the perforated work
    surface in the airflow around the object. A dial operated
    control and digital readout (%R.H.) are fitted to the control

    De-humidification: Circulated air is passed through a custom
    made de-humidification plant, removing excess moisture to
    achieve controlled drying of the object from below. Condensate
    collection and contained water drainage are incorporated into
    the system. Custom made, Formica-coated wooden table top and
    rubber cover are also included. Please check requirement for
    special electrical outlet. The table is in New York City. Some
    other conservation equipment will also be sold, please contact
    for details.
