Automotive solutions for cabin air filters sector - Automobile & Ground Transport
Puragen Activated Carbons products used for cabin air are high activity carbons that are excellent for adsorbing many odors and chemicals from the air one breathes while in the vehicle.
Puragen Activated Carbons offers products used in the automotive industry for evaporative emission control. Special, highly mesoporous activated carbon is used in canisters mounted within the vehicle to adsorb fuel emissions when the vehicle is turned off and to recover fuel when the vehicle is restarted. OxPure activated carbon with very high surface area is used for cabin air filters to adsorb many odors and chemicals in order to maintain a healthy atmosphere within the vehicle.
What is Activated Carbon?
First used as a purifier in approximately 1500 BC, activated carbon reached the modern world in the 19th century via the sugar refining industry in Europe. Today, it plays a vital role at the home, municipal, and industrial levels, including the automotive industry.
Activated carbon has a tremendous surface area and a vast network of microscopic pores. It attracts an incredible range of both organic and inorganic compounds. It can be used alone or impregnated with specific chemicals to enhance its effectiveness against specific compounds.
In the automotive industry, activated carbon is used to control emissions, remove VOCs (volatile organic compounds), and improve the quality of cabin air. It can also be used to create electrodes for supercapacitors.
