During 2019, the UK Government set out its plans for reducing the levels of specific air pollutants, in a document called the Clean Air Strategy. Of the five main types of pollution identified by DEFRA, three of them can be treated effectively using activated carbon filtration – volatile organic compounds (VOCs), ammonia (NH3) and sulfur dioxide (SO2).
CPL Activated Carbons offers a wide range of specialised Filtracarb® activated carbons for the abatement of various gas phase contaminants, including VOCs, NH3 and SOX. In addition to the carbon media, CPL can also provide mobile carbon filter units of various sizes and flow rates. This range of VOCSorber® gas phase vessels includes a number of high flow units, specifically designed for situations where traditional ‘deep bed’ filters would cause too high a pressure drop.
The latest addition to CPL’s range is the flagship unit called the HF24 VOCSorber®. Based on a 30’ container, it can easily cope with flow rates in excess of 40,000 m3 per hour, and is ideal for general air treatment in waste transfer stations or large-scale chemical/ pharmaceutical production facilities, where VOC emissions may be an issue. A vertical version of this High Flow unit is also under development, offering a far lower physical footprint than this horizontal design.
In common with all of CPL Activated Carbons’ gas phase products, when the carbon is spent it can be recycled via the company’s UK-based thermal reactivation facility.
