4 pack of LakeAir Carbon Filters 499005
Carbon air filters remove odors from the air. As air passes through a carbon filter the gasses and odors are absorbed by the carbon granules in the filter. The Maxum Standard Carbon filter is constructed from an aluminum frame, mesh and a carbon impregnated foam media. The media is filled with thousands of tiny carbon granules. These filters do not last as long as our Super Carbon filters.
Air moves through these carbon crystals. As gasses in the air come in contact with the carbon, it is drawn into the carbos porous structure. This process is known as absorption.
Carbon has a Limited Life Cycle
A granule of carbon can only hold so much matter. Like a sponge, carbon can only absorb odor. Unlike a sponge, you cannot wash the odor out of a carbon filter. It is necessary to throw your old carbon filter away and replace it with a fresh one. How do you when it’s time to replace your carbon filter? The only real way is the sniff test. Carbon filters remove the odors from the air best when they are new. The air in the room should be pleasant and odor free. When that pleasant sense of clean smelling room is gone, it is probably time to change the carbon filter.
