Type FV Filter

Designed to fit containment housings, the Type FV-Activated Carbon Adsorber provides high-efficiency, single-pass filtration of gaseous contaminants from nuclear power or medicine ventilation air streams, laboratories working with mercury and heavy metal compounds, military and government installations providing destruction, testing or collective protection from chemical warfare agents, and any facility utilizing extremely hazardous chemicals.

Carbon types available include coconut shell, coal, and wood-based products, as well as a large variety of specialty impregnated carbons.

The adsorbers can be customized to remove radioactive gases, mercury vapors, acid gases, organic vapors, odors, and various other contaminants.

The Type FV-Bed Adsorber is designed with either a 1"-or 2"-thick carbon bed arranged in a V-Bank configuration. This design allows high airflow, low pressure drop, and even distribution of the process airstream across the carbon bed. Adsorber frames are constructed of T-304 stainless steel, carbon steel, or plastic. The adsorbers are designed for use in the "CM" Series Gasket Seal Bag-ln/Bag-Out Housing, or the "KE" Series Knife-Edge (Gel) Seal Bag-ln/Bag-Out Housing.

These adsorbers are manufactured under stringent quality control procedures. Each adsorber is filled, tested and packaged in accordance with lEST Recommended Practice. Each adsorber is tested in accordance with this standard to ensure a minimum mechanical efficiency of 99.9% prior to shipment.

Barnebey Sutcliffe® offers unparalleled support for your spent adsorbers through our field and waste management services, including spent carbon recycling or incineration. We can uniquely assist you from media selection to the removal of expended filters. We also offer on-site filter exchange as well as shipment to off-site service centers with quick turnaround of your filters.


• Minimum chemical removal efficiency of 99.9% when tested in accordance with IEST-RP-CC008.2.
• Available in several standard sizes.
• Can be filled with the appropriate adsorbent to capture any contaminant.
• Available DMMP testing (war gas equivalent) for extremely critical military and government applications.

Safety Message

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.
