Gas Phase Bonded Carbon Filtration

Bonded Carbon Filtration

AirClean® Systems bonded carbon filters provide for a predictable and reliable gas phase filtration solution

AirClean® Systems manufactures bonded carbon, hybrid, and multi-layered filters that are available with standard carbon or chemically impregnated carbon for increased load capacity. Our bonded carbon filters minimize carbon dust found in traditional granular carbon filters. In some cases carbon dust, when chemically impregnated, may be more hazardous to the operator than the chemical being contained. We recognized this "flaw" in granular carbon filter design and eliminated it by holding the carbon in a predictable matrix with our proprietary bonding process.

Activated Bonded Carbon Filters

Gas phase coconut shell carbon filters utilize our unique bonded carbon filtration media. This minimizes potentially hazardous carbon dust found in traditional granular carbon filters. Our proprietary bonding process holds carbon in a predictable matrix, preventing carbon shift that can lead to "dead spots" common in traditional granular filters.

Filter Type Application
ACF100 General purpose filter for Hydrocarbons, Organic Vapors, Some Acids, Esters, Sulphur Compounds, Hydrogen Compounds, Solvents and Odor

Activated Bonded Carbon Chemisorptive Filters

These filters are impregnated with a chemical additive which helps the adsorption process by chemically or physically reacting with the toxic contaminant.

Filter Type Application
ACFGLT Glutaraldehyde and Formaldehyde
ACFFOR Formaldehyde
ACF300 Ammonia or Amines
ACF350 Alkaline Fumes
ACF400 Inorganic Acids
ACF410 Hydrogen Sulphide
ACF430 Mercury Vapors
ACFMULTI Multi-layered composite filter for Aldehydes, Acids, and General Organic Solvents

Filter Adsorption Index

The ACF100 is a general purpose bonded carbon filter that can be used for a range of chemicals. The index below is intended as a guide to approximate how much of the toxic contaminant the filter may adsorb. At a filter weight of 22 lbs. (10 kg), and the index of "1", up to 50% or 11 lbs. (5 kg) of the toxin may be adsorbed within the filter. The index does not indicate the filtration efficiency, but the approximate weight of the contaminant that may be adsorbed within the filter. In general an index of "1" or "2" is a good indication of the filter’s suitability for use with that specific chemical. If another type of filter would be more appropriate, it has been indicated in parentheses in the partial chemical listing that follows.
