209C KINA™ is a specialty impregnated activated carbon specifically developed as a broad-based sorbent to handle a wide variety of air contaminants. It provides very high capacity for compounds that are not strongly adsorbed by other carbons (such as hydrogen sulfide, mercaptans, sulfur dioxide, chlorine, hydrogen chloride, nitrogen oxides, etc.). 209C KINA™ is a proven product for indoor air quality and industrial processes. The standard mesh size is 6x12, but custom mesh sizes are available upon request.
The impregnates on this carbon have been shown to decrease the ignition temperature of the carbon. This product passes the United Nations Self-heating Test (United Nations Transportation of Dangerous Goods, Manual of Tests and Criteria, Part III, Section 18.104.22.168 - Test N.4 - Test Method for Self Heating Substances) and is therefore deemed suitable for shipment without concern over it self-heating. However, in some applications when the carbon is left open to air and low convective flow of air passes through it, the carbon can self-heat and ignite. Therefore, when an adsorption vessel containing carbon is out of service or in storage, care should be taken to prevent convective airflow which can be prevented with the installation of blind flanges on inlet and outlet connections.
Activated carbon preferentially removes oxygen from air. In closed or partially closed containers and vessels, oxygen depletion may reach hazardous levels. If workers are to enter a vessel containing carbon, appropriate sampling and work procedures for potentially low oxygen spaces should be followed, including all applicable Federal and State requirements.
