Air purification refers to vapor phase treatments including cleaning, purifying, neutralizing, and extraction/recovery processes. Strictly speaking, gas purification experts are responsible for designing, installing, and maintaining systems that purify and process gases. They work with a variety of gases, including natural gas, propane, and hydrogen, and use a variety of techniques to purify them. This includes removing impurities, such as water, sulfur, and carbon dioxide, as well as adjusting the pressure and temperature of the gas, and they monitor the systems to ensure they are operating safely and efficiently. Air purification experts are those that specialize in the installation, maintenance, and repair of air purification systems. They are responsible for ensuring that the systems are working properly and efficiently and that they are providing the best possible air quality for the environment. They may also provide advice on how to improve air quality in a home or business.
Activated carbon is one of the most effective treatment processes for these applications and is applied in numerous ways from standalone units to impregnated materials (paper, cloth, etc.) used in filter elements to acid/base treated products for neutralization of corrosive vapors. In residential and commercial HVAC systems, filter media (cloth and paper) incorporate activated carbon for air recirculation systems. In industrial settings, impregnated activated carbons are used to neutralize corrosive gases to protect electronic components and instrumentation. Activated carbon is also utilized for the capture of nuisance odors such as hydrogen sulfide and related reduced sulfur compounds for natural gas purification, wastewater treatment facilities, and various industrial setting such as asphalt plants. Activated carbon is widely used to capture mercury from the flue gas emitted from coal-fired power plants.
Choosing the most effective activated carbon product for a given gas stream requires knowledge of the application and familiarity with systems used in these scenarios. Also, knowledge of activated carbon properties and post-production treatment processes will ensure that the proper product is chosen for a given application. When incorporating products into various support media and OEM products, an understanding of manufacturing processes and materials handling is necessary to streamline production and maximize finished product performance.
