Odor Control

Activated carbon removes unwanted odors by acting as an adsorbent which will trap the odor inside the activated carbon and retain it. Activated coconut and coal carbon are a great adsorbent because of its huge surface area. Virgin activated carbon is excellent at removing unwanted and harmful odors, pollutants and VOCs by both absorbing and adsorbing. Activated carbon is very proficient in odor removal because it has micro and macro pores to pull molecules into itself there by absorbing them, as well as attracting them and holding molecules on its surface there by absorbing them. The process of 'activating' carbon is designed to maximize the surface area to mass ratio.

The activation process generates a network of minute openings (pore or cavities) of different diameters on the carbon surface which become the path for water or air to access the extended internal surface created by the activation.

At RECO, we specialize in Air Treatment With Activated Carbon for various applications. With over 30 years of experience, we understand the standards and quality that are required to work within the industry. Removing hazardous odors from your environment can not only remove unpleasant odors, but also the VOCs can improve your health and mood. This is because the carbon removes unwanted gas contaminants that can seriously affect our health.
