Chemically Impregnated Media
Exploring The Basics Of Dry Scrubbing Air Purification
Impregnated media is manufactured from a foundation material such as carbon or aluminum.
The founation material is coated with a reactive chemical in the impregnation process.
When polluted air is forced through a bed of impregnates, reactions within the media will irreversibly change the contaminants into harmless solids.
Different chemicals produce different air pollution control qualities.
Basic chemistry will react with acidic contaminants.
Acidic chemistry will react with basic contaminants.
Oxidizing chemistry will oxidize a broad spectrum of contaminants.
