SMD ENGINEERING Activated carbon is an inert solid adsorbent material commonly used to remove Paint smell, VOC , TOXIC SMELL, diverse, dissolved contaminants from gas and water process gas-phase streams. It is made from almost any feedstock that contains carbon, including coconut shells,coal wood and charcoal …
SMD ENGINEERING Activated carbon works by adsorbing contaminants onto the surface of its internal pores. This process continues until it is saturated. When this occurs, the spent activated carbon should be removed and replaced. The SMD only requires piping connection for complete installation.
Granular activated carbon is made from raw organic materials (such as coconut shells or coal) that are high in carbon. Heat, in the absence of oxygen, is used to increase (activate) the surface area of the carbon; this is why these filters are sometimes referred to as “charcoal” filters.
Activated carbon (activated charcoal) can made from many substances containing a high carbon content such as coal, coconut shells and wood. The raw material has a very large influence on the characteristics and performance of the activated carbon (activated charcoal).
Typically, a good activated carbon air filter lasts for about six months and would need to be replaced once every year.
Carbon filters trap odors through a process called adsorption, which occurs when molecules attach to the outside of a surface, rather than being soaked into it.
Some of the gases in cigarette smoke or those given off by drying paint or cleaning products can be removed from the air by a carbon filter. Benzene, toluene, xylene, and some chlorinated compounds are among those that may be removed by carbon filters.
