Activated Carbon, Charcoal Filter
Allerair air cleaners, air purifiers, and air scrubbers use the power of activated carbon.
- What it does and how it works.
Activated carbon is carbon that has been treated with oxygen to open up millions of tiny pores between the carbon atoms. There are so many of these that one pound of activated carbon has a surface area of 60 to 150 acres
- The technology used in military gas masks.
Activated carbon is the substance that keeps military personnel safe from poisonous gasses. It is also used for water filtration.
Adsorption is the process where certain chemicals are attracted to activated carbon and then bond to it. The millions of pores in the activated carbon provide enormous surface area to trap these chemicals.
- The bigger the filter, the more activated carbon, the more chemicals it adsorbs and the longer it keeps on working.
An activated carbon filter acts like a sponge. When it is full it can adsorb no more. The more carbon you have the more you can adsorb before changing the filter. Allerair MAC-B™ carbon filters have from 7 to 160 pounds and will last from 9 to 24 months. Most off the shelf air cleaners, air purifiers, have only a few token ounces of activated carbon sprayed on a mesh. It's not enough to have any useful long term effect.
- Impregnated activated carbon
Catalysts can be added to activated carbon to enable it to attract non-carbon based chemicals. These special blends of activated carbon are available for Allerair air cleaners, air purifiers, air filtration systems. Our air quality experts will recommend the right solution to any air contamination problem you encounter.
