Our ductless fume cabinets incorporate our exclusive Multiplex™ high performance activated carbon filters, which is the primary filtration component in removing all chemical fumes from within our products before air is recirculated back to the laboratory.
Activated carbon exhibits excellent adsorbent characteristics that make carbon very useful for a wide variety of processes including filtration, purification, deodorization, decolorization, purification and separation.
The effectiveness of activated carbon as an adsorbent is attributed to its unique properties, including “large surface area, a high degree of surface reactivity, universal adsorption effect, and pore size".
Activated carbon is produced from a wide variety of carbon-rich raw materials, including wood, coal, peat, coconut shells, nut shells, bones and fruit stones.
New materials are currently under investigation as sources for activated carbon.
