FRONT AND SIDE ACCESS HOUSINGS

The Barnebey Sutcliffe Front and Side Access assemblies are commercial and industrial duty activated carbon filters designed to purify air streams contaminated with odors and irritants associated with new construction and furnishings, manufacturing processes, and other air pollutants. In most cases the purified air can be recirculated, resulting in reduced make-up air requirements and energy savings.

How It Works

Granulated activated carbon (GAC) is like a molecular magnet. GAC is microstructured of millions of tiny pores and interconnecting capillary passages that represent a surface area of millions of square feet per pound of carbon. As contaminated air passes through the carbon bed, the vaporous contaminates disperse throughout and are adsorbed on this vast surface. To promote retention of certain gases not readily adsorbed on standard activated carbon, Barnebey Sutcliffe pioneered the development of specially impregnated activated carbons. Impregnated activated carbons combine adsorption with chemical reactions to permanently remove these contaminants from the air stream. (See Activated Carbon Introduction Section.)

Equipment Selection

The series FLS™ or FJS™ (side) and FLD™ or FJD™ (front) adsorber assemblies are designed for commercial duty operation. The “L” units use 2”-thick panels, while the “J” units use 1"-thick panels. Consider these housings for the following:
• Reduce make-up air costs by removing odors and recirculating purified air.
• Purify and recirculate room air where make-up air is not available.
• Purify contaminated make-up air.
• Purify contaminated exhaust air.

Side Access Housing Features

• Durable all-welded 16-gauge electro-galvanized steel housing. 14-gauge continuous weld option. Painted carbon steel or 304 stainless steel optional.
• 2", 4", 6" pre-and post-filter tracks available.
• Quick entry, hinged side access doors on each side of housing to simplify filter installation and change-out. Optional bolted doors are available for space-limited installations.
• Foam gaskets on doors to prevent leakage.
• Completely factory assembled and self-supporting.
• Modularly designed with nominal 500 fpm face velocity compatible with most air handling and particulate filtration equipment.
• Optional match-up transitions for unique applications.
• Full-size, easy-to-handle nominal panels to expedite panel change-out and minimize pressure drop (for panel sizes see chart below).
• Half size available to accommodate range of housing widths.
• Weather cap for outside installations optional.
• Can be provided with fan and particulate filters as a skid-mounted system.

FJI Filter

Refillable Carbon Panels

The FJI™ filter is an activated carbon, refillable panel typically used in our FLS™, FJS™, FLD™, or FJD™ housings. The panels can be packed with any of the more than 100 available activated carbon products offered by Calgon Carbon Corporation, as well as with other media such as potassium permanganate. The panels are available in painted carbon steel, plastic, aluminized steel, or stainless steel construction. Standard size is 24'' x 24'' nominal with 1'', or 2'' depths. Custom-sized carbon filter panels are also available based on customer need. Barnebey Sutcliffe also offers a wide range of carbon panels in specific configurations that provide an alternative to the original equipment supplied and with a much larger range of media choices to meet your specific treatment objectives and achieve lower operation and maintenance costs.

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.

Limitations of Liability

Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary herein, in no event shall Supplier or its contractors or suppliers of any tier be liable to Purchaser for any indirect, special, consequential, incidental or punitive damages as a result of a breach of any provision hereunder or for any other claim of any kind arising out of or relating to this document, whether in contract, in tort (including without limitation, negligence or strict liability), indemnification or otherwise. Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary herein, for all losses, damages, liabilities or expenses (including attorney’s fees and costs), whether for indemnity or negligence, including errors, omissions or other acts, or willful misconduct, or based in contract, warranty (including any costs and fees for repairing, replacing or re-performing services or curing a breach hereof), or for any other cause of action (individually, a “Claim”; collectively, “Claims”), Supplier’s liability, including the liability of its insurers, employees, agents, directors, and officers and all other persons for whom Supplier is legally responsible, shall not, to the maximum extent permitted by law, exceed in the cumulative aggregate with respect to all Claims arising out of or related to this document, the total amount of compensation paid to Supplier hereunder. All Claims of whatsoever nature shall be deemed waived unless made in writing within forty-five (45) days of the occurrence giving rise to the Claim.

Warranty Disclaimer

Calgon Carbon Corporation warrants that the Front and Side Access Housings will be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of 90 days following the date of purchase. In the event of a breach of this warranty, Calgon Carbon Corporation will, in its discretion, repair or replace any defective parts or the complete unit during the warranty period.
