This machine can remove dust from over 5,000 books per day (video)

How often do you remove dust from books at home? Once a year, during spring cleaning, more or less often?

It’s not an easy task, everyone will admit it. Now, imagine cleaning the books not from one small bookshelf but the entire library.

Boston Public Library has recently shared on Twitter a short behind-the-scene video showing a machine that’s used to clean the books.

This waterless book cleaning system is produced by an Italian company called Oracle Srl and is called Depulvera. The company claims the machine is a complete automatic book cleaning system which is “simple to use and can be operated by conservators and library technicians.”

Every minute, Depulvera can remove dust from up to 12 books. That makes 5,760 books cleaned during a working day.

Depulvera is not the only solution offered by Oracle Srl. There are three more systems designed to remove dust and dirt from books. One of them is called Pulvisina, shown in a video below. It’s a smaller (and rather strange) machine which cleans books in three steps.
