Filtration

AirClean® Systems manufactures bonded carbon, hybrid, and multi-layered filters that are available with standard carbon or chemically impregnated carbon for increased load capacity. AirClean® Systems 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. AirClean® Systems recognized this "flaw" in granular carbon filter design and eliminated it by holding the carbon in a predictable matrix with our proprietary bonding process.

Bonded Carbon Filter

Activated Bonded Carbon Filters

AirClean® Systems gas phased filters use activated coconut shell carbon. Coconut shell carbon has a very high internal surface area matrix when compared with the same volume of other carbons. The large surface area and highly developed internal structure of this carbon type allows it to adsorb up to 50% of its own weight compared to the weight of the toxic vapor being contained.

Activated Bonded Carbon 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.

HEPA Filter

HEPA Filters

HEPA filters are designed to trap particulate and can be used in ductless fume hoods or laminar flow products. Ideal for use as a clean room HEPA filter. Required for laminar flow products.

Filter Type Application
ACFHEPA Containment of particulate only. Filter efficiency 99.997% efficient for removal of particulate at 0.3 microns in size.

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.
