These adsorber filters can help mitigate Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) problems in buildings where the air needs to be cleansed of gaseous contaminants.


SuperFlow VC adsorber filters consist of eight activated carbon-filled panels arranged in a V configuration and sealed with non-volatile adhesive into top and bottom injection molded ABS plastic end plates. The sealant completely eliminates bypass within the cell. The end plates incorporate a single header to position the cell in holding frames or side access housings.

Extruded aluminum vertical struts close off the panel edges in front and are aerodynamically designed to minimize airflow restriction and turbulence. Vertical steel rods on the downstream side provide rigidity and minimize twisting and racking. The activated carbon panels are constructed of one (25 mm) thick moisture-resistant corrugated kraft honeycomb grid. The honeycomb is filled with granular activated carbon held in place by fine mesh nylon screens glued to the grid. These screens act as a secondary prefilter, as well as an afterfilter.

The activated carbon media is premium HVAC grade virgin coconut shell granules with a minimum Carbon Tetrachloride (CTC) activity of 60% per ASTM D-3467. Granules are 4 x 8 U.S. mesh size with a minimum apparent density of 0.49 g/mL.  


SuperFlow VC adsorber filters in HVAC airstreams can remove many gaseous contaminants, thus mitigating the contaminants’ effects on people and processes. These filters are especially useful in controlling common contaminants that cause poor IAQ in commercial and industrial buildings, such as office buildings and hospitals. Typical applications and controlled contaminants are: airports (SOx and NOx), blueprint facilities (ammonia), food processing (amines), loading docks (diesel fumes), museums (aldehydes and acid gases), office buildings (VOCs and aldehydes), and research facilities (animal odors).

Light duty IAQ applications can usually be handled by SuperFlow VC filters selected at 500 FPM (2.54 m/s) face velocity with a 0.030 second residence time. Medium and heavy duty applications include airports, engine exhaust, some industrial processes, and situations requiring impregnated carbon. For these applications, adsorbers should be selected at greatly reduced face velocities for a longer residence time.
