Water Test Kits - These test kits are used on a daily basis to check the water purity in the ship reconstruction tank, where the Belle is being reconstructed and will be later conserved.  The tests include pH, total alkalinity, chlorine levels, hardness, and iron and copper levels.  This enables the lab to keep the water at an optimum pH and to keep the tank free of algae and bacteria that would be detrimental to the conservation efforts.

Steel Tanks - These large-capacity tanks will be used to store the polyethylene glycol (PEG) before, during, and after the conservation process of the reconstructed hull of the Belle. It is necessary to use PEG of different molecular weights to effectively penetrate the waterlogged timbers, and the PEG must be pumped into and out of the large vat in which the hull will be conserved. Once this project is completed, the PEG will be stored in the tanks until it is needed for the next project.
