OdorBan filters utilize two stage filtration technology to remove odors.
Odor Ban removes odors, irritant gases, particulates and dust in some of the most challenging environments. Odor Ban panel filters fit into existing filter housings so fume and odor control is available without costly retrofitting or expensive housings and fans. OdorBan filters are MERV 8 rated.
What makes Odor Ban superior to other carbon filters?
It’s all about Outer Surface Area. Typical indoor gaseous irritants adhere to the outer one millionth of a meter of carbon’s surface. Odor Ban pleated filters incorporate Gray Matter® intelligent carbon media. Gray Matter media maximizes Outer Surface Area by reducing the average carbon granule size. It’s like comparing the outer surface area of a basketball to that of thousands of BB’s of the same size and weight. A 1-millimeter granule of carbon becomes one trillion Gray Matter granules! This increases the outer surface area of that granule from 6 square millimeters to 60,000 square millimeters. These particles adhere to the media fibers through an ultra strong molecular bond and don’t require pore-clogging adhesives. The carbon granules or slurry in traditional carbon filters have most of their “surface area” deep within the pores of the carbon, or Inner Surface Area. In many cases, those pores are clogged by the glue that holds the carbon onto the filter media.
