In our industrial society, manufacturing and commercial facilities are required to filter air and gases of chemicals, odors, and compounds that can cause health and environmental damage. Oxbow Activated Carbon products are typically used to scrub gas and vapor streams of harmful emissions and foul odors, in addition to recovering reusable solvents. Oxbow Activated Carbon products help protect and purify the world we live in so we breathe cleaner air.
Coal Fired Utilities
Oxbow Activated Carbon special ultra-fine grade PACs as well as halogen impregnated PAC can be injected into the flue gas of coal fired utility plants to reduce mercury emissions and comply with the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS).
Activated carbon is a commonly used filter media ingredient for cigarette filters that reduce harmful components in smoke. Oxbow Activated Carbon’s cigarette filter products include low dust and special fine mesh coconut shell GAC.
Flue gas is a by-product of burning fuel or waste products for energy. Oxbow Activated Carbon products are effective at high temperatures and their large surface area captures a range of compounds from flue gas to reduce mercury, dioxin, furans, and other emissions.
Whether purifying specialty gases to ultra-pure levels, treating hydrogen purification using pressure swing adsorption (PSA) or simply removing siloxane from methane, Oxbow Activated Carbon offers the right products for industrial gas manufacturers.
Oxbow Activated Carbon products are very effective in removing organic and inorganic impurities in air streams. In some large air treatment applications, spent activated carbon can be reactivated and returned for service or reused in other applications.
Odor control technology is critical to industrial and municipal operations where foul odors can be harmful to human health. Examples include industrial facilities that emit odors caused by sulfur compounds, ammonia, and amines.
Respirator applications rely on Oxbow Activated Carbon products to protect people from a wide variety of harmful contaminants in gases, vapors, dusts, mists, fumes, smoke, sprays, and fog. Respirators are critical in many manufacturing industries.
Solvent recovery systems enable solvents to be recovered and reused. Oxbow Activated Carbon products are excellent at adsorbing many solvents and is competitive with alternative technologies like oxidation. It also readily desorbs the solvents for recovery.
