The BACB504 Box Type Activated Carbon Filters in HVAC airstreams can remove many gaseous contaminants thus mitigating the contaminants’ effects on people and processes. These filters are especially useful in controlling common contaminants that cause poor IAQ in commercial and industrial buildings, such as office buildings and hospitals. Typical applications and controlled contaminants are:
airports (SOx and NOx), blueprint facilities (ammonia), food processing (amines), loading docks (diesel fumes),
museums (aldehydes and acid gases), office buildings (VOCs and aldehydes), and research facilities (animal odors).
Light duty IAQ applications can usually be handled by BACB504 Box Type Activated Carbon Filters selected at 500 FPM (2.54 m/s) face velocity with a 0.030 second residence time. Medium and heavy duty applications include airports, engine exhaust,
some industrial processes, and situations requiring impregnated carbon. For these applications, adsorbers should
be selected at greatly reduced face velocities for a longer residence time.
