Activated carbon cylinder

Activated carbon cylinder are available in the form or elements, which can be filled with loose activated carbon pellets. These filters are usually refillable and are further characterised by their combination or high adsorption capacity and low flow rate. The flow rate of these filters is particularly high, while their adsorption capacity is low. In the case or extremely high concentrations or gases, it is also advisable to use stainless steel.

  • The filters can be installed in either standard AFPRO holding frames or frames specially designed for the activated carbon cylinders.
  • It is important that separate filters are fitted in front or and behind the carbon filters.
  • A pre-filter is required to prevent the activated carbon fi lter from becoming clogged with dust particles.
  • An after-filter is also required to avoid the possibility or activated carbon particles entering the airfl ow.
  • Ensure that no leakage can occur. (new gaskets can be supplied together with filters)
  • Make sure that the frame and the cabinet in which the new filter is to be fitted are cleaned first
  • Activated carbon pellets may be spilled either during installation or throughout the life span or the filter; ensure that these are removed before the system is turned on.
  • Maintain records or the filters installed; note the date, type and initial resistance.
