Kimberly-Clark: Gas Phase Filter Media
June 2, 2008
The odor control filtration media for commercial and institutional applications removes odors and other irritant gaseous contaminants from HVAC system airstreams. The media is made of thermally bonded, 100 percent synthetic fibers that resist shedding. The activated carbon components are securely bonded as well to prevent carbon shedding. The media can be made into 1-, 2-, and 4-inch pleated air filters and has excellent pleatability for sharp, crisp pleats, says the company. It has a two-layer construction. The upstream layer provides excellent particulate filtration and protects the downstream carbon layer from particulate loading, to ensure maximum odor removal capability. The downstream layer is made of activated carbon, which adsorbs and retains gaseous contaminants. It is effective with odors caused by items including paint, remodeling, finishing, antiseptics, soaps, volatile organic compounds, alcohols, cooking, liquid fuels, and musty and stuffiness.
