A High Efficiency Gas Adsorber (HEGA) filters gaseous contaminants from an airstream by adsorbing the contaminants. With a properly designed system that includes proper adsorber selection, adsorbent, and residence time, any adsorbable contaminant can be filtered and contained.

To be called a HEGA, the adsorber must exhibit a minimum mechanical efficiency of 99.9% when tested in accordance with the Institute of Environmental Sciences designation, IES-RP-CC-008-84.

Type IV V-Bed Adsorbers

Carbon adsorbers use impregnated activated carbon as a filtering medium to remove gaseous emissions from nuclear, biological and/or chemical process exhaust air. Type IV V-Bed adsorbers are designed for use in AAF Flanders BF-Series and BG-Series bag-in/bag-out housings, and in KF-Series and KG-Series high efficiency side-service housings.

All units are made with beds of carbon mounted in a V-bank configuration at various depths and residence times at rated airflow, depending upon customer requirements. Various grades of carbon are available to meet specific removal requirements. The Type IV V-Bed adsorber is designed with either a 1-inch, 1 3/8-inch, or 2-inch thick bed. This design allows a high airflow at a relatively low pressure drop. Adsorber frames are constructed of T-304 stainless steel with T-304 stainless steel perforated screens.

AAF Flanders tests each adsorber to ensure a minimum mechanical efficiency of 99.9% per IES-RP-CC-008-84. This test of the adsorber’s efficiency on test agents is used to determine if the adsorber is properly manufactured and filled.
