Activated Carbon System
State-of-the-art carbon technology gives Dynamic Activated Carbon panels many advantages over pellet-based systems. Dynamic Activated Carbon systems remove target contaminants without the energy cost penalty, supplying purified air more efficiently.
Dynamic Activated Carbon systems can be used in:
- Specialty Applications: such as museums, archives, hospitals, labs, and clean manufacturing.
- Problem Applications: to address issues such as entrainment of kitchen fumes or engine exhaust fumes.
- General Applications: cleaning the air of gas phase contaminants in commercial buildings or for reduced outdoor air applications.
- Industrial Applications: including pulp and paper, petrochemical plants and refineries, as well as municipal and private waste water treatment plants.
Carbon effectiveness and longevity are functions of weight and contact time. More weight means more capacity for odor removal and a longer service life. One gram of activated carbon has 10,000 square feet of internal surface area. One pound of activated carbon has a surface area equal to about 125 acres.
The media life for a Dynamic Activated Carbon Matrix is predictable, based on the contaminants of concern and their concentration levels. In addition, the media can be engineered on a job-by-job basis to meet specific performance requirements such as static pressure drop, maximum face velocity, and residence time. Common target contaminants include hydrogen sulfide, sulfur dioxide, and other acid gases and odors.
Dynamic Activated Carbon delivers an 80–90% upstream/downstream removal.
