Vapor Adsorber And Fan – A Simple Air Pollution Solution

General Carbon Corporation has added a fan to their user friendly Air Pollution Control Barrels to provide a quick and easy solution for simple VOC and odor control applications. The high volume aluminum fan mounted on the top of the General provides efficient control of minor point source pollution problems.

The F-Series units are available in three sizes that cover a wide range of airflow requirements. The F-55 is our basic unit and will move 125 CFM of air at 4″ WC static pressure. The motor is 115/230 VAC, 1 pH, 60 Hz, TEFC and is weatherproof. Wiring of the motor is not included to provide adaptability to site requirements. Loading the unit with impregnated carbon can improve the removal efficiency for Hydrogen Sulfide, Mercaptans, ammonia, formaldehyde, or other problem contaminants.

Wet activated carbon removes oxygen from air causing a severe hazard to workers inside carbon vessels. Confined space/low oxygen procedures should be put in place before any entry is made. Such procedures should comply with all applicable Local, State and Federal guidelines.

FIRE!  When vapor phase activated carbon adsorbs chemicals, a heat of adsorption is given off.  The treated air flow is the only way this heat is removed from the bed.  If the chemical concentration is high and the gas flow is small, the heat created in the carbon bed can accumulate to the point where a bed fire is started.  In addition, if you are dealing with flammable chemicals, understand the correct operation of your system.  If you have any questions about the fire potential of your system, please call General Carbon Corporation at 973-523-2223.
