Carbon filters are used in areas where gaseous contaminants can impact the air we breathe. Sensitive electronics in areas such as airports, hospitals and factories are also typical applications for carbon filtration. Your carbon filter choice will depend on the type and strength of the odor that is causing the issue. Carbon filters are also used in waste water treatment, fish farming, and industrial processes that create or use corrosive elements.
Filters classified as carbon filters may actually use different types of media, including carbon, alumina and potassium permanganate to absorb chemical contaminants. Five Star Filter offers these mediums in granules, pellets, infused into fabric (carbon impregnated media rolls), and tank breathers.
We also have pleated air filters, deep pleated rigid cells, and industrial grade carbon panels for air conditioning, heating and ventilation systems (HVAC).
