Activated Charcoal is commonly used throughout the health physics industry as an air sampling trap. Contaminates adsorbed on the Activated Charcoal can be quantitatively determined and them compared to NIOSH Standards.
Activated Charcoal is used to adsorb trace quantities of contaminates, such as pesticide, from solvents. It is the ideal oil mist removal agent for compressed air. It is also the preferred adsorbent for the trapping of hydrocarbons in inert gas streams.
