GDC Filter


The granular DACOR™ cartridge (GDC) is the answer to your indoor air purification needs. It can be ordered with any of our over 100 types of activated carbon for the purification of air streams for indoor occupied spaces to improve air quality and absorb problem odors. The unique design of the high-capacity cartridge filter (over 80 million square feet of carbon surface area per filter) features low pressure drop for economical operation. The GDC filter provides exceptional performance associated with recirculated air applications. The spent cartridge is suitable for incineration or inclusion as a part of land-fill solid waste directly or may be returned to Barnebey Sutcliffe® for refilling. The low pressure drop configuration and performance make it an ideal fit for replacement filters in existing HEPA installations or for inclusion in new HVAC systems. The GDC is manufactured of lightweight materials for ease of handling while enclosed by a durable plastic or aluminum frame for strength and easy disposal. Special carbons are available for those difficult-to-control air contaminants such as ammonia, hydrogen sulfide, and formaldehyde.

Barnebey Sutcliffe® offers unparalleled support for your spent adsorbers through our field and waste management services, including spent carbon recycling or incineration. We can uniquely assist you from media selection to the removal of expended filters. We also offer on-site filter exchange as well as shipment to off-site service centers with quick turnaround of your filters.

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.
