Exceptional Smoke Odor Control
The LA2-RC2-EOC offers a lot of smoke and superior odor control for and smoky environment. The washable electrostatic filter removes 97% of all air borne smoke. The electrostatic cell is made of high quality aluminum and will provide you 15+ years of filter service. We have this very same filter in service for over 35 years. The filter has no moving parts so there is very little to wear out. Occasionally n ion wire will break during cleaning but that is easily replaced.
The 5 chamber carbon filter contains 2750 grams of virgin activated carbon. The air stream is directed through the carbon bed instead of over the carbon. This results in more odor being removed in each pass. If your goal is to clean the air fast, the LA2-RC2-EOC is a great choice.
Electrostatic is a Favorite Technology
Electrostatic is a favorite of many cigar lovers. This technology adds a negative charge to smoke particles which are then trapped on collecting plates. The filtration is up to 97% efficient. This efficiency drops off if the electrostatic filter is not cleaned regularly. Electrostatic filters are washable and last decades. By washing the filter as opposed to replacing it the cigar smoker can save hundreds of dollars each year.
Electrostatic filter can be just the answer to your cigar smoke filtration question. Lets take a look at a few more of the aspects of this type of filtration: The filter uses high voltage to charge and capture cigar smoke particles. That same high voltage will make your filter sound like a bug zapper when large particles enter it or if it is in bad need of washing. Washing of the filters is easily done in a standard home dishwasher. The image to the right shows a MAX Guard filter sitting in a portable dishwasher. We had to remove the sliver ware try but it fits well and cleaned up nicely. When washing an electrostatic filter by soaking, rinsing and allowing to dry, we figure it takes a little over an hour of your time, and the dry time is 2-3 hours
Getting Rid of Odor
It seems that the main complaint about cigars is the odor. Removing the cigar odor from the air is so important that we have designed some units to have a smaller smoke filter capacity to allow for more odor absorption. Removing cigar smoke from the air is a pretty straight forward process. If you use the right filters the smoke is gone in just a cleaning cycle or two. Cigar smoke odor however is a bit trickier. Cigar odor is removed from the air using an odor absorbing media. The best media around for stogie odor is activated carbon.
The primary filter removes the smoke from the air. The odor in gaseous form remains and travels through the carbon filter. In the carbon filter the odor molecules come into direct contact with the carbon crystal and are absorbed. This absorption isn’t automatic. It takes a certain amount of time for carbon to soak up the odor. This amount of time is known as residence time. The longer odors are in direct contact with the activated carbon the more of the odor that is removed.
For this reason its a good idea to leave your smoke eater on for a few hours after the smoking has stopped. The unit uses very little power so you needn’t worry about excessive electrical bills. Keeping the odor removal process going helps prevent odors from entering the soft good in the room. Many establishment spend thousands of dollars on furniture, so take extra care to completely remove the odor
