This absorbent media can prevent carbon-bed fires

By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey |

This company has launched Sulphasorb 2 (photo), a new activated alumina and carbon chemical-adsorbent media that reduces the risk of carbon-bed fires in paper mills and other critical locations. This upgraded chemisorbent media was designed in response to fire concerns at paper mills where corrosive gases are present. Serious explosions and fires have happened in paper mills over the years due to not properly maintaining air purification systems or following the right procedures to mitigate risk. Sulphasorb 2 dramatically reduces the risk of fire by using a proprietary caustic blend impregnated on a mixture of activated alumina and carbon, says the manufacturer. — PureAir Filtration, LLC, Atlanta, Ga.
