Extruded Coal

Camfil's extruded coal carbons are a very high-quality grade of pelletized activated carbon that has an adsorptive capacity towards a very wide range of volatile organic gases and odours. This material is extremely useful when the exact nature of the contaminants has not been determined. Extruded cola carbon is an extremely effective ”broad spectrum adsorbent” for industrial applications.

  • Broad spectrum affinity towards most organic emissions
  • Ideal for medium to high molecular weight and low volatility contaminants
  • Targets a wide range of heavy hydrocarbons and isocyanates
  • Able to be installed in any manufacturer's loose-fill filters
  • Range of pelletized sizes to optimize performance through industrial deep bed scrubbers
  • ISO 10121-1:2014 tested media
  • ICON6 Molecular
  • ICON37 ISO10121
