Phoenix, Permanganate Filter, Therma-Stor, Carbon/Potassium, 18" x 18" x 1"
Carbon/Potassium permanganate filters use a blend of activated carbon and potassium permanganate. This blend removes the vast majority of gaseous contaminants encountered in most filtering applications. The activated carbon removes the heavier volatile organics while the potassium permanganate removes lower molecular weight contaminants. This is well suited to the smoke odors present after fire damage.
The life of the media blend depends upon both the hours used and the contamination level. Another advantage of the blended media versus activated carbon only is that part of the blend changes color as it loads up with contaminants. It starts out black, then turns pink, then brown, and finally white. It is best changed when it passes the brown stage and begins to turn white. It has lost most of its effectiveness at that point.
The filter is the same size as the pleated fabric filter. Install it in place of the pleated fabric filter.
