Carbon Adsorption Towers

Oxair’s carbon adsorption towers have a single pressure vessel fitted with a special Activated Carbon adsorbent for pollution control – by removing impurities, such as oil and oil vapour, from a compressed air stream in a variety of industries.

The carbon adsorption towers are primarily used to reduce oil vapour in compressed air to very low concentrations. However, other hydrocarbon vapours usually absorbable by activated carbon are also removable.

How carbon adsorption towers work
Compressed air enters the bottom of the carbon/coal tower and flows up through the bed and exits out of the

Easy maintenance
Separate fill and drain points are incorporated in Oxair’s carbon absorption towers making it easy to replace the carbon (with no piping to disconnect). The life of the carbon is usually a minimum of three years under constant operation.

Key features
Carbon adsorption towers:

• Single tower (pressure vessel) filled with a special activated carbon adsorbent
• Large beds ensure sufficient contact time to produce the outlet concentrations as desired
• Separate fill and drain ports for ease of carbon replacement
• No piping to disconnect
• Stainless steel screens and screen diffusers (top and bottom)
• Carbon life of 3 years (min) under constant operation
