Our chemical adsorbent media is used for gas filtration to target gases, vapors, and odors in industrial, municipal, and commercial industries. After determining which gas is causing the problem, we offer a variety of media to determine the best solution for each customer. The main gases our chemical adsorbent media target are:

  • Ammonia
  • Hydrogen Sulfide
  • Sulfur Dioxide
  • Nitric Oxide
  • Formaldehyde
  • Chlorine
Adsorbent Media

We manufacture all our media on site and it can be incorporated into various housings/filters to meet a customer’s specific need.

A museum in Washington, D.C. tested its environment for harmful gases to see what could be potentially harming its artifacts. The results showed nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and sulfur dioxide (SO2) to be the main culprits testing at levels as high as 22.21 ppb and 1.68 ppb respectively. These levels of gases could cause irreversible damage to valuables in the museum over time.

The client was familiar with gas phase filtration technology, so it chose three companies to participate in a study to see which products could best remove the gases with the winner of the study gaining the business of the museum.

All PureAir Adsorbent Media Types

 

Activated Alumina with Impregnated Potassium Permanganate Media

We offer multiple types of activated alumina that is impregnated with potassium permanganate. PureAir Filtration starts with the highest grade activated alumina to ensure that the greatest possible capacity is reached. This alumina is then impregnated with potassium permanganate while being formed into a pellet. Click HERE to request more information on our medias; PureAir 4, PureAir 8, PureAir 12, and Microbe-sorb.

PureAir 4

Pure Air Filtration’s PureAir 4 media targets a broad range of gases which cause corrosion, odor, as well as other undesirable gases.

PureAir 8

Pure Air Filtration’s PureAir 8 has been developed to have roughly twice the capacity of PureAir 4 media. This second generation adsorbent media was developed in order to provide customers with the maximum adsorption benefit at the minimum cost.

PureAir 12

Has been developed to have roughly fifty percent greater capacity than PureAir 8 media. PureAir 12 meets the requirements of UL Class 1 fire rating.

Microbe-sorb

Comprised with our highest concentration of permanganate, plus a propriety formula which activates and enhances its antimicrobial properties.

Activated Carbon Media

PureAir offers a variety of activated carbons. This type of media targets various gases and odors. PureAir starts with the highest grade activated carbon to ensure that the greatest possible adsorbtion capacity is reached. Click HERE to request more information on which media best fits your needs: AC-C, AC-X, Ammoniasorb®, Sulphasorb™, Sulphasorb XL™, Sulphasorb Fe™, Carbsorb, and NOXsorb.

AC-C

Produced from the shell of coconuts, this carbon is considered the finest in the world of air purification. The coconut shell forms pores which are just the right size to capture many gases and odors.

AC-X

Because of its shape, performance, and low cost, extruded carbon has become the standard over the past decade. PureAir carbon has a low dust, high activity level, economical choice.

Ammoniasorb®

Provides ideal adsorbtion of amines and other base compounds which as ammonia. It is developed from highly activated carbon manufactured by steam activation from selected grades of anthracite coal.

Sulphasorb™

Has been used in the pulp and & paper and refinery markets for over forty years. This product targets those gases which are predominant in this environment, especially Hydrogen Sulfide. This media is designed to perform exceptionally well in all scrubbers including Westvaco vapor adsorbers and Purafil tub scrubbers.

Sulphasorb XL™

Has the highest Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) removal capacity commercially available. H2S is the primary gas in sewage odors and industrial process gases. This high capacity (greater than 0.30 g/cc which is more than 50 percent by weight) gives Pure Air Filtration gas removal systems the capability to provide long lasting, highly efficient gas & odor removal systems. This provides our customers with the lowest cost of ownership along with the highest level of effectiveness.

Sulphasorb Fe™

Adsorbs 25% of its weight in Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S), far more than its activated carbon competitors. Made from high iron content compound, Sulphasorb™ Fe is an all-around better choice than activated carbon for use in odor control scrubbers where H2S levels exceed 50 ppm.

Sulphasorb FeXL™

This media is a 50/50 percent blend of Sulphasorb XL™ and Sulphasorb Fe™. The ability to remove 45% of its weight in H2S places it high above activated carbon. Made from a high iron content compound, Sulphasorb FeXL™ is an all-around better choice than activated carbon for use in odor control scrubbers where H2S levels exceed 50 ppm.

Sulphasorb-2 Media

Sulphasorb 2™

Targets acidic gases, specifically hydrogen sulfide. This product has the same capacity by volume (0.15 g/cc) as original SulphasorbTM, but it has the upgraded benefit of fire resistance.

Carbsorb

Target gases, especially Hydrogen Sulfide. The carbon and alumina are impregnated with proprietary caustic compound to neutralize acid gases.

Carbsorb (002)-min

NOXsorb

Was developed to serve the growing worldwide concern about the health risks associated with NOx. This family of gases includes Nitrogen Oxide (NO), Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2), and Nitrogen Trioxide (NO3).

Blended Media

PureAir offers unique blends of media to target a broad range of odors and gasses. Each blend has different capacity removals. Click HERE for more information on which media best fits your needs: PP Blend, CP Blend, CPS Blend, CPS 12 Blend, TriBlend, and Odasorb.

PP Blend

This adsorbent media is a 50 percent/ 50 percent blend of PureAir 8 potassium permanganate based media and Sulphasorb™ acid gas removal media designed for the removal of corrosive gases commonly found in the Pulp & Paper and Petrochemical/Refinery industries.
