Engineered Media

SAAFCarb™ MA media is manufactured exclusively for corrosive environments. Targeted impurities include hydrogen sulphate, sulphur dioxide and volatile organic compounds (VOC). The media is composed of carbon, alumina and other binders uniformly impregnated for optimal removal of acid gases.

The SAAFCarb™ MA removes 99.5% of contaminant gases from carbon-based air filtration systems through adsorption, absorption and chemical reaction. The pellets trap and oxidise the gases, changing them into harmless solids while eliminating desorption. SAAFCarb™ MA media's engineering allows the process to be instantaneous, irreversible and chemically safe. 

SAAFCarb™  MA 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, with velocities from 1,080 to 9,000 m/hr.

Chemisorptive Process

The SAAFCarb™ MA media chemisorptive process removes the impure gases by adsorption, absorption and chemical reaction. The gas is trapped within the pellet, where a chemical reaction changes the gases into harmless solids, thereby mitigating the possibility of desorption.

Quality Control

SAAFCarb™ MA media undergoes the following quality control tests:

  • Apparent Density
  • Ball-pan Hardness
  • H2S Gas Capacity
  • Moisture Content

Packaging Options

SAAFCarb™ MA media is packaged in 25 kg bags or big bags of 500 kg. SAAFCarb™ MA media is also available packaged in SAAF cartridges, cassettes and trays.

Application Guidelines

SAAFCarb™ MA 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™ MA 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.
