Engineered Media

SAAFCarb™ enhanced capacity media efficiently removes 99.5% of targeted contaminants from SAAFCarb™ systems. Target impurities include diesel fumes (nitrogen dioxide), hydrocarbons, chlorine and volatile organic compounds (VOC). The pelletised activated carbon is composed of non-toxic, bituminous coal substrate. SAAFCarb™ media removes toxic and impure gases from the environment by adsorption. In this process, the gases accumulate on the surface of the pellet.

Quality Control

The 3 mm pellet media undergoes several quality control tests before being shipped, revealing low pressure drop and high adsorptive capacity. SAAFCarb™ media performs at a range of 20° to 55°C under 10–95% relative humidity (RH). Airflow is effective in commercial and industrial systems and ranges from less than 42.5 m3/hr to over 169,920 m3/hr and with velocities from 1,080 to 9,000 m/hr.

Packaging Options and Application Guidelines

SAAFCarb™ media is packaged in 25 kg bags and big bags of 500 kg. SAAFCarb™ media is also available packaged in SAAF cartridges, cassettes and trays. SAAFCarb™ media performs under the following application guidelines (actual capacities and efficiencies may vary):

  • Temperature: -20° to 55°C
  • Humidity: 10% – 95% RH
  • Suitable for use in commercial and industrial systems with equipment face velocities from 0.25 - 2.5 m/s

Installation and Disposal Requirements

The installers must use dust masks, safety goggles and rubber gloves. The spent SAAFCarb™ media must be disposed of according to local and national guidelines.


Wet activated carbon adsorbs atmospheric oxygen, causing low oxygen supply in enclosed areas or packed containers. This can be potentially hazardous for workers who enter these oxygen-depleted areas. Make sure that the workers adhere to the local and national safety guidelines.
