Activated Carbon Filters

Activated Carbon Filters

Activated carbon filters are normally used in conjunction with other types of filters. Charcoal filters or activated carbon air filters are the most effective filter for removing the smell from cigarette smoke, chemicals, gases and many other odors from household air.

Carbon filters must be returned to the manufacturer for cleaning or replacement.

Activated carbon is actually charcoal that has been put through a process that causes millions of pores to form. Surface area of the carbon is increased and creates a very large surface area where gases and particles are trapped. These pores form between the carbon atoms.
