Vapamon - Activated carbon for ammonia and amines

Activated carbon chemically treated to chemisorb ammonia and low molecular weight amines.

Product images are illustrative and may vary from the physical product.

Granular activated carbon to adsorb ammonia and low molecular weight amines.

Raw material: Coconut shell
Particle size range (mesh): 4 × 10, 6 × 12, 8 × 14, 14 × 30, or 4mm Pellet.
Presentation: 10kg bucket, 25 kg sacks, 100 kg containers

Applications:
Cartridge respirators (masks)
Control of polluting emissions in various chemical processes.
Odor control in photocopied rooms.
Fish processing.

After activation, the carbon is impregnated with acidic surface groups, which are very stable and are strongly bound to the surface of the carbon. These groups provide carbon with a great capacity to retain alkaline molecules, such as ammonia and low molecular weight amines.

Vapamón must be handled with the care corresponding to an acidic material and must be kept in an environment as dry as possible, as it is hygroscopic (absorbs moisture). However, this care is offset by the capacity of this carbon, which is approximately twice that of other impregnated carbons that are manufactured to retain alkaline gases and vapors.

Retains:

  • Ammonia (NH3) and amines.
  • All types of organic vapors (although with less capacity than a non-impregnated carbon)

Compound with which it is suggested to test:
Ammonia (NOTE: organoleptic tests should not be done, as ammonia can cause respiratory arrest)

Among the compounds it retains are:
Ammonia
Benzylamine
n-Butylamine
Cyclohexylamine
Diethylamine
Dimethylamine
Gave-n-propylamine
Ethylamine
Ethylenediamine
α Phenylethylamine
ß Phenylethylamine
