Charcoal Air Purifier Information
In the following sections, I will go over how charcoal can get rid of odors and smells within your home and business effectively. I will also show you some pictures of charcoal filters and what they are composed of.
How does Charcoal Purify the Air?
Charcoal is probably not the first you think of when you think of absorbing odors. You probably think of firing up the grill and making hamburgers. The trick to the technology is the use of Activated Charcoal or Carbon. It is infused with oxygen, which opens up the millions of pores between the carbon atoms in the charcoal. Now odors can be bonded within the pores of the carbon.
What Can Activated Charcoal Absorb
You will be surprised what charcoal air purifiers can absorb and protect you from breathing. All the smells from your trash can, feces, smoke, and even hazardous chemicals can be absorbed. That’s right I said dangerous chemicals can be absorbed. You might be thinking bleach or house cleaning fluids, but it can even stop things like mustard and nerve gas. If you have seen a gas mask guess what’s in it.
What do Charcoal Air Purifiers Look Like?
You will find that charcoal air purifiers look just like any other air purifier. Mostly because a lot of air purifiers have coal put in them as a pre-filter before it gets to the HEPA filter or ionizing wires. It is one of the first steps of filtration in most cases. Everybody loves fresh smelling air. It is not like ozone but does the job if you can circulate the air through it.
These filters are not much different from the ones you have in your central air system. The only difference is what is inside of them to trap particles.
