How Does an AllerAir Air Purifier Work?

An AllerAir air purifiers clean your indoor air in several steps:

• A tar-trapping pre-filter removes sticky tar and other large particles
• The HEPA traps 99.99% of fine airborne smoke particles
• The deep-bed activated carbon filter adsorbs airborne chemicals, gases and odors

While HEPA filters are fairly standard, activated carbon filters can vary in quality and effectiveness. Activated carbon works like a sponge to soak up airborne chemicals, gases and odors. The capacity of that “sponge” depends on its depth and size. The more activated carbon used in an air purifier, the more chemicals, gases and odors it can adsorb.

Hoe does activated carbon work? 

Used on the world’s most hazardous airborne pollutants, activated carbon is one of the safest and most effective filtration methods in use today.

Activated carbon actually attracts pollutants and traps them in millions of tiny pores and fissures. The surface area in activated carbon is so extensive, that if you could spread out all of the microscopic openings found in only one teaspoon of activated carbon, it would cover an entire football field. This unique quality allows carbon remove very large amounts of chemicals, gases and odors.

Filters with only a small amount of carbon or carbon dust sprayed onto mesh won't have as many openings for pollutants to be trapped and can quickly be saturated. This results in most frequent filter changes and ineffective filtration.

AllerAir filter last on average 2 to 5 years, depending on the pollution level.

About Carbon Blends

Our standard “EXEC” carbon blend has a very large internal surface area and works exceptionally well for a wide range of air pollutants. 


The “Vocarb” carbon blend is our most recommended and best-selling specialty carbon blend. Vocarb stands for Volatile organic compounds or VOCs and this include a variety of chemicals that can cause a range of health problems including shortness of breath, headaches, fatigue, nausea, dizziness and eye, nose, lung and throat irritation. Some VOC's are suspected to cause cancer in humans and have been shown to cause cancer in animals. The long-term health effects caused by VOC's would depend on the concentration and length of exposure.


Some chemicals adhere better to different types of carbon materials and carbon blends. Over the years we’ve sourced and developed over 40 carbon blends. If you have an odor or chemical you need to remove, we have a blend to target it
