The Side Access Carbon filter housing is part of a total system approach to improved indoor air quality (IAQ) that is designed for use with air handling units or other side access equipment. It offers the convenience of servicing the filter from outside the air duct and is especially suited for installations involving limited headroom.
The Side Access Carbon housing is a gas-phase filtration system. It removes gaseous contaminants (note: gaseous contaminants are not captured by particulate filters) from the airstream through adsorption, and in some cases, chemical neutralization. During the adsorption process, gaseous molecules are physically attracted to the surface of the adsorbent medium where they are captured and retained.
The Side Access Carbon housing is available with high-quality activated charcoal (coconut shell-based carbon), which is effective on a large range of common gaseous contaminants. The carbon conforms to a 4 x 8 mesh and has a minimum activity of 60% on carbon tetrachloride.
