Inline Filter

We design, manufacture and supply high quality and durable activated carbon filters for effective odour control and VOC removal in a range of applications. Our filter are cylindrical-shaped and comes in many different sizes for ease of application. To ensure the quality of our carbons we only use activated carbon that we produce in our factory. We provide fully engineered solutions for your VOC abatement, odour control and other air pollution systems. We can manufacture carbon filter design systems according to your needs.

Depending on the application, the activated carbon filter cylinders are suitable for the adsorption of many pollutants. Pollutant emissions can contain toxic and potentially harmful substances such as mercury, tricresylphosphate, vinyl chloride or peticides, ammonia and hydrogen sulphides. The interfering substances that have to be eliminated in industrial processes includes sulphur dioxide, chlorine, hydrochloric aid, siloxanes, phosgenes and various volatile hydrocarbons (VOCs).

Our activated charcoal filters can be applied in many kind of application segments areas such as hotels/airports, catering, hospital and laboratories, museum & galleries, telecoms, petrochemicals, landfill/sewage, defense, nuclear power, power plants, and compressor/blowers.

 

In water treatment we use activated carbon water filters to remove chlorine, taste, odor and organic contaminants from water. In manufacturing of soft drinks, beer, bottled water our carbons are used to remove unwanted odor or color compounds from glycerin, remove unwanted color etc. Carbon filters can be used to filter organic impurities from vodka and whiskey. Since the activated carbon water filter does not bind well to alcohols, the percentage of ethanol is not significantly affected, but the carbon will bind to and remove many organic impurities which can affect color, taste, and odor.

Carbon filtering is a method of filtering that uses a bed of activated carbon to remove contaminants and impurities, using chemical absorption.

Each particle/granule of carbon provides a large surface area/pore structure, allowing contaminants the maximum possible exposure to the active sites within the filter media. One pound (450 g) of activated carbon contains a surface area of approximately 100 acres (40 Hectares).

Activated carbon works via a process called adsorption, whereby pollutant molecules in the fluid to be treated are trapped inside the pore structure of the carbon substrate. Carbon filtering is commonly used for water purification, in air purifiers and industrial gas processing, for example the removal of siloxanes and hydrogen sulfide from biogas. It is also used in a number of other applications, including respirator masks, the purification of sugarcane and in the recovery of precious metals, especially gold. It is also used in cigarette filters.

Active charcoal carbon filters are most effective at removing chlorine, sediment, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), taste and odor from water. They are not effective at removing minerals, salts, and dissolved inorganic compounds.

Typical particle sizes that can be removed by carbon filters range from 0.5 to 50 micrometres. The particle size will be used as part of the filter description. The efficacy of a carbon filter is also based upon the flow rate regulation. When the water is allowed to flow through the filter at a slower rate, the contaminants are exposed to the filter media for a longer amount of time.
