Carbon Pleated Filters for Contaminants/Odor Removal
Air Filters Incorporated’s Astro-Sorb™ carbon pleated filters provide superior odor and particulate capture by using activated carbon, combined with a non-woven polyester media. Unlike the typical coal-based carbon, the activated carbon is made with a coconut shell-based material. The carbon opens up when heated, making it more porous and giving it a larger surface area. The synthetic media is then chemically enriched with 200 grams/sq. meter of coconut-based activated carbon.
The Astro-Sorb™ is highly efficient while effectively capturing and removing air pollutants and odors. The Astro-Sorb™ captures and traps VOCs, gases, and vapors through the process of chemical adsorption. Activated carbon pleated air filters act as a “sponge” to harmful gases and vapors, effectively stopping and trapping contaminants that can bypass the human body’s natural defenses and cause illnesses. The Astro-Sorb™ is designed with residential and commercial HVAC industries in mind, with features including low-pressure drop, high dust holding capacity, and odor adsorption.
