About Activated Carbon

Activated carbon is recognized as the safest and most efficient way to treat airborne chemicals, gaseous pollutants, fumes and odors. Carbon that is activated undergoes a process that opens millions of tiny pores and fissures to enhance the material's adsorbent properties. A single pound of activated carbon typically has a surface area of 125 acres. In fact, activated carbon is so effective that it is used by the military to combat the world’s most dangerous airborne pollutants.

Why Choose Activated Carbon Over Ozone?

Activated carbon the safe, effective and economical choice
  • Effective: Widely used by the military and heavy industry for chemical and odor control
  • Economical: Carbon canisters can be refilled, low electricity draw
  • Reliable: Simple, yet effective technology that is more reliable and easier to maintain
  • Safe: Does not create or aggravate respiratory problems, which makes it a safer technology for staff and clients during and after use
  • Versatile: Ideal for occupied buildings, can be used in any type of environment
  • Responsible: Does not create new pollutants
The drawbacks of ozone machines
  • Expensive to run, high electricity draw
  • Ozone must reach toxic levels to be effective against microorganisms, consequently ozone "blasts" are usually over Federal safety limits
  • Not suitable for occupied buildings
  • May cause serious respiratory problems for staff or clients
  • Not useful in high humidity environments
  • Oxidation can create other pollutants
  • Complicated maintenance, higher incidence of product or component failure

About HEPA

HEPA stands for high efficiency particulate air filter and describes a filter that can remove at least 99.97% of airborne particles 0.3 microns in diameter. Particles of this size are used to evaluate the performance of a HEPA filter, because they are among the most difficult to remove. HEPA filters are considered the safest and most efficient method to treat airborne particles.

About UV

Many of our units can be customized with a UV (ultra violet) germicidal lamp. This technology is favored by the healthcare industry, food storage warehouses, laboratories and other facilities where microorganisms, bacteria, viruses or mold are an issue. UV works by breaking down microorganisms and disrupting their DNA, hindering their ability to reproduce.
