Air Filtration Applications of Activated Carbon
Pollutants in the air can be outputs of industrial manufacturing processes or can form naturally. Contaminants released into the air and created as a result of industrial processes are regulated by the Clean Air Act. Companies are responsible for having the necessary filtration systems to control pollution emitted into the air.
When Activated Carbon is incorporated into filtration systems at the right levels, it is extremely efficient in purifying the air from industrial processes. Activated Carbon is very porous and the large surface area allows the contaminants to be adsorbed into the activated carbon. Activated Carbon is also effective in removing odors from air. There are a variety of applications for Activated Carbon to include:
Industrial plant emissions
Ventilation and exhaust systems
Purification of process gases
Food packaging and storage
