Users Guide for Vapors,
Gases and Fumes Removed
by Austin HealthMate Air Filters

Many of the classifications are rather general, so it was necessary to pick a typical or average condition. The odor index for a specific situation could vary somewhat from that given in the table if special circumstances apply.

The capacity index has the following meaning:

1 Absorption capacity is low for these materials. Activated carbon cannot be satisfactorily used to remove them under ordinary circumstances.
2 Includes substances which are not highly absorbed but which might be taken up sufficiently to give good service under the particular conditions of operation. These require individual checking.
3 Satisfactory capacity for all items in this category. These constitute good applications but the capacity is not as high as for category 4. Absorbs about 10 to 25% of its weight -- average about 1/6 (16.7%).
4 High capacity for all materials in this category. One pound takes up about 20% to 50% of its own weight-- average about 1/3 (33-1/3%). This category includes most of the odor causing substances.
* Straight activated carbon does not have much capacity for some reactive gases, such as ammonia, formaldehyde, etc. In some cases where the gas is chemically reactive, appropriate impregnated activated carbon can be recommended. Those odorants marked with an asterisk fall into this category.
