Method to measure the concentration of volatile organic compounds inside the organ windchest

A unique method to map the environment inside the organ has been developed within the project. The method provides information on the presence of potentially corrosive gases in the wind system. The concentration of organic acids, aldehydes and volatile organic compounds is measured using both active and passive sampling. Before each measurement the organ was not played for five days. This was done in order to simulate the situation where the concentrations of organic acids build up inside the organ pallet box when the organ is not played. This method may be used to analyse the environment inside an organ, in order to predict if a certain organ is at risk for heavy corrosion. This new technique will be disseminated by publishing a detailed description of it in scientific journals.
