Depending on the application specifics, we offer systems which are permanent, hard-piped as well as systems which are removable. With our removable systems, when an adsorber exchange is required, a fresh adsorber will be delivered from any one of our regional locations. The adsorber containing spent carbon is removed from the site using a roll-off or flat bed trailer and shipped to our reactivation facility where the adsorber is emptied, inspected and refilled. The spent carbon is reactivated and recycled.
For our hard-piped systems, Siemens can provide a total service package that includes utilizing OSHA trained personnel providing on-site carbon changeouts, packaging and transportation of spent carbon for recycling at our reactivation facilities, where the contaminants are thermally destroyed.
The frequency of activated carbon exchange will depend on operating parameters that affect carbon loading such as VOC type and concentration, temperature, relative humidity, superficial gas velocity, carbon type (coconut shell or coal) and other factors. Siemens offers state-of-the-art computer modeling programs, for carbon consumption estimates and optimization of system performance.
