SAAFOxidant™ engineered gas removal chemical media is designed to efficiently remove gaseous contaminants from airstreams. Manufactured as spheral, porous pellets, SAAFOxidant™ engineered media is composed of a combination of activated alumina, binders, and potassium permanganate. Potassium permanganate is applied uniformly during pellet formation and is distributed throughout the pellet volume to create a completely homogeneous particle. This process provides the maximum amount of impregnant for chemical reaction and optimal performance.
The SAAFOxidant™ media chemisorption process removes the contaminant gases by adsorption, absorption, and chemical reaction. In this process, the gas is trapped within the pellet, where oxidation changes the gases into harmless solids and thereby mitigates the possibility of desorption.
There are many quality control tests which are undertaken by SAAFOxidant™ media. All these tests are to make sure that the physical as well as chemical properties can play its own role to achieve the performance designed for this media.
The quality control tests included:
- Apparent Density
- Crush Strength
- Moisture Content
- Pellet Diameter
- Potassium Permanganate (KMnO4) Content
- H2S Gas Capacity
