Iodine Trap

Nuclear activated charcoal filter

AAF’s Iodine Trap is a high quality activated carbon filter designed for AAF’s CSE Filter Housing or equivalent Bag In/Bag Out (BIBO) filter systems. These filters use activated carbon with high porosity to meet adsorption needs and prevent iodine dispersion during normal operation or in the event of an incident. Iodine is created by fission inside the fuel rods and can be present in the form of a gas or aerosol in the atmosphere of contaminable areas of the plant.

Activated charcoal is tested by a French Nuclear Laboratory and meets the highest nuclear standards for nuclear iodine air filtration.
