Can-Filter® has designed and built the Can-Lite for convenience and long life. 100% Australian Granulated carbon, aluminum top and bottom, integrated flange and 51% open perforation are features of the Can-Lite filter. The Can-Lite is available in 12 sizes with a CFM range of 89 - 3000. Can-Lite is manufactured in a dedicated carbon filter plant in North America. Each filter is shrink wrapped, boxed and labeled for ease of use.

Deciding Between Exhaust and Recirculating (Scrubbing) Systems

You'll need to identify if your system will operate by exhausting (moving air from a contaminated environment to a sterile one with only one pass through the filter) or by recirculating, also referred to as "scrubbing" (where air is cleaned and then reintroduced into the contaminated space).

  • Exhaust Systems

    In an exhaust configuration, air traverses the filter a single time, making it crucial to eliminate nearly all contaminants in this singular opportunity. Achieving this level of purification requires the contaminants to be in contact with the carbon in the filter for a sufficient duration to be fully absorbed. Our filters come with ratings for both exhaust and recirculating uses to guide you in this process. If your setup involves exhausting air, it's vital not to surpass the filter's exhaust rating. Exceeding this limit compromises the contaminant's absorption as the reduced contact time with the carbon won't allow complete adsorption.

    Recirculating Systems

    In recirculating arrangements, contact time between the air and the filter isn't as critical because the process involves taking contaminated air, purifying it, and reintroducing it into an environment that is being continuously decontaminated. This approach negates the need to eliminate every contaminant in one pass. Instead, we adjust to double the exhaust rating, which decreases the contact time. The aim here is not to remove all contaminants in one go but to increase the number of times air passes through the filter relative to the contaminant emission rate. By doing this, we might remove around 60% of contaminants per cycle instead of aiming for 99.9% efficiency in a single pass, effectively allowing for more filtration cycles within the same timeframe. This strategy gradually diminishes the total concentration of contaminants in the environment over time.
