Remove unpleasant scents from the outside with the active carbon filter box

Posted on November 21 2017

A technique often used in the filter industry: a filter box that uses active carbon. We see it more often, both in the private and industrial markets. But what is it and when is what applied? 

What is active carbon?

Active carbon is specially treated carbon that absorbs all kinds of substances. These granules are processed in panel or bag filters.

When active carbon is still unprocessed, you better put on gloves to handle it. Fortunately, you no longer have to do with our filters. 

Private market

But when are these types of filter boxes used in the private market? On the one hand, this happens when the bag or panel filter at a filter box is connected to the supply of the ventilation system. On the other hand, this can be provided for ventilation systems that have a panel filter as standard. Although this must then be a custom-made active carbon filter box. 

Industrial market

But the application of an active filter box is also possible on the industrial market. Only then, a preliminary study happens first to know how much size and which substances need to be filtered.
