AIR PHASE CARBON FILTER SPECIFICATIONS
The AIR PHASE CARBON FILTER is designed as mobile carbon filter using 4000 to 10000 pounds of carbon. The recommended CFM is 2000 to 5000 using carbon with a mesh size of 4 to 10.
The tank is constructed of mild steel with outside dimensions of 90 inches wide, 180 inches long and 100 inches high. The inside dimensions are 60 inches wide, 168 inches loin and 84 inches high. The bottom has a plenum 12” above the bottom to support the carbon and act as a filter screen for the air. The screen is 304 stainless steel perforated with .0625” holes on 1/8” centers for an open area of 22%. The screen is supported by a grid with 4 chambers using perforated 3/8” steel plate for air flow disruption with no pressure drop.
The back of the filter has a flanged door to dump spent carbon. The door dimensions are 5' wide and 2' high. The carbon can be dumped in Yakima with no one touching the carbon. Refill of new carbon is from the two 20” manways.
The outside is painted with industrial grade enamel and the inside primed, and epoxy painted for corrosion resistance.
The design and weight distribution is made for loading and unloading onto a drop box truck using the superior hook system. The box may also be breded with hooks for crane loading onto a flatbed.
Empty weight – 4800 pounds.
Weight with dry carbon – 14,800 pounds.
Weight saturated as high as 24,800 pounds depending on water loading. The support surface should be at least 8' x 15' with 45' in front for hook ruck loading.
Inlet and outlet are 11 inch sheet metal flanges. The filter comes with an 11' x 12' flange expansion piece to use 12” ducting and supplied with 2 five foot sections of 12” flexible neoprene ducting. The pressure should not exceed 10 psi and 150F.
On top are two manways 20” in diameter. The manways are sealed by a flange with 1/8” neoprene gasket.
On the side of the filter there is a ladder for easy access to the top. The filter is tested for leaks to 10 psi before being loading with carbon.
● A variety of carbon is available. The attached curves give pressure drops for different sizes. The price is higher for the larger mesh.
● Recirculation fans are available for low flows. If the flow falls below 2,000 cfm, we suggest a recirculation fan to prevent channeling.
● Duct heaters may be ordered to prevent condensation in the carbon.
The WATERCARB liquid adsorption system
The WATERCARB liquid adsorption system is a prefabricated unit that makes use of the adsorptive properties of activated carbon to eliminate liquid pollution problems cased by chemical contaminants.
The WATERCARB unit is designed to provide an efficient, economical way to control contaminant level in process streams, waste water systems and other liquid pollution situations.
WATERCARB will effectively remove polluting contaminants from liquid streams. A few of the uses for this system are listed below:
Waste water streams, solvent recirculation, laboratory wastes, process streams, wet scrubber liquids, toxic spills, separator liquids.
The system is supplied ready for immediate use. It is easily connected to an existing system using the ¾ inch N.P.T fittings that supplied on the inlet and outlet.
The WATERCARB systems may be used in series or parallel depending on liquid flow volume and type and concentration of contaminant.
Recharging with new activated carbon by the user is possible, however it is recommended that spent units be returned to Cameron – Yakima, Inc. for regeneration.
The outer shell of the unit is made from a 55 gallon poly drum. The shipping weight of the unit is approximately 225 lbs. The carbon weighs 175 to 200# of 8 x 30 mesh.

400 Lb. to 2000 Lb. Air Phase
Activated Carbon System
The 400 lb. To 2000 lb. Air carbon units consist of a 48” x 77” tank with a steel fork lift skid. The inlet is a 4” PVC bulk head fitting designed for 4” female NPT fittings. The manway outlet can be used for discharge or an optional 4” bulkhead fitting can be installed in the top of the tank for discharging into an exhaust stack. A 4” slotted pipe on the inside bottom provides excellent distribution of the contaminated gas into the carbon. The minimum recommended flow rate is 205 cfm. The maximum flow is dependent on pressure drop and allowable contact time. A pressure drop curve is attached. Contact our engineering staff for carbon consumption and contact time.
