Economical and compact, the VENTSORB® series of drum activated carbon adsorbers is ideal for low-flow (less than 500 cfm) air purification applications at industrial, laboratory, and manufacturing facilities. Chemical, petrochemical, food, pulp and paper, and many other industrial plants are frequent users of the VENTSORB® for continuous treatment of vented emissions. Here are a few examples of user applications for control of small volume organic contaminant and/or odorous gas emissions:

  • Laboratory hood exhaust
  • Storage tank vent
  • Reactor vent
  • Paint booth
  • Solvent shed
  • Indoor assembly ooms
  • Landfill
  • Ai -stripper off-gases

VENTSORB® Drum Adsorbers

VENTSORB® canisters contain all the elements found in a full-scale adsorption system vessel: activated carbon, inlet connection and distributor, and an outlet connection for the purified air stream. Air is distributed across the carbon bed with a corrosion-resistant plastic septum. An active ventilation system with the canister mounted on a simple skid and an inlet fan provides the highest degree of user-friendly operation.

Making Air Safer and Cleaner


Wet activated carbon removes oxygen from air, causing a severe hazard to workers inside carbon vessels. Confined space/low

oxygen procedures should be put in place before any entry is made. Such procedures should comply with all applicable local,

state and federal guidelines.
