TYPE OF EQUIPMENT:
Adsorbtion technology is based on the ability of activated carbon to retain most volatile organic compounds. Activated carbon is a chemically inert industrial material (or an activated material when saturated with NaOH for H2S removal) composed of a highly porous form of carbon. It is a material with an exceptionally high internal surface area which gives it extraordinary properties of adsorbtion.
The pores (whose size is variable) constitute the adsorbtive components of this material. Contaminated air passes downward through the bed of activated carbon, depositing the contaminants and saturating the pores in the carbon.
Air is pushed through the carbon filter by a standard fan. The treated air is released into the atmosphere.
The activated carbon filters produced by ecochimica®, because of their special structure, are highly efficient in treatment, allowing for conformance with the established emission standards and facilitating periodic maintenance operations.
