Porous carbons containing several types of inorganic impregnate such as iodine, silver, cations such as Al, Mn, Zn, Fe, Li, Ca have also been prepared for specific application in air pollution control especially in museums and galleries. Due to its antimicrobial and antiseptic properties, silver loaded activated carbon is used as an adsorbent for purification of domestic water. Drinking water can be obtained from natural water by treating the natural water with a mixture of activated carbon and Al(OH), a flocculating agent. Impregnated carbons are also used for the adsorption of Hydrogen Sulfide(H2S) and thiols. Absorption rates for H2S as high as 50% by weight have been reported.
KOH, or NaOH impregnated activated carbon, FCK series are kinds of pelletized activated carbon for Respirators and Human protection. In the simplest terms, KOH, or NaOH impregnated activated carbon does double duty: First it grabs the contaminants and then it turns them into something harmless. Accordingly it is ideal for respirator applications. Because impregnated carbon attracts and holds contaminants both physically and chemically.
Non-military applications for impregnated carbon include:
A. Manufacturing of personal protection and first responder masks.
B. Individual gas mask filters.
C. Collective protection filters.
D. Sulfur compounds removal
E. Automotive cabin air purification systems.
F. Mercury abatement
G. Odor control
