Carbon cell filter systems

Eliminate cooking odours with a carbon cell filter system

Used in conjunction with the ACK odour control systems like the Electrostatic Precipitator or Ultra-violet (UV-C) Systems, carbon cell filters offer an effective and practical odour or air pollution reduction in commercial kitchens.

Carbon cell filters for effective odour reduction

Eliminating all cooking odours, grease, air pollution and smoke requires multiple systems working in conjunction withy each other.

On its own carbon cell filter systems are not very practical for use with grease and smoke as their relatively large particles plug the micro porous structure making them ineffective. But they are highly effective at eliminating cooking odours, general odour, air pollutants and contaminants.

The units are constructed by mounting a series of carbon panel filters within a sealed case with the filtering surfaces arranged in a “V” formation. Each carbon panel is sealed into the filter case to ensure no air can bypass the carbon granules. The panels are manufactured using bonding techniques which hold the activated carbon granules together and covered in a carbon impregnated cloth to prevent the leakage of granules or powder, remaining intact and rigid even if wet.

Combining the effectiveness of the carbon cell filter system with other ACK odour control systems like Electrostatic Precipitators, will create a clean and safe kitchen environment.
