Carbex is a unique soda lime absorbent which finds uses in removal of carbon di oxide and acidic contaminants from gases streams. It is an active form of a mixture of hydroxides (calcium and sodium hydroxides) which has high affinity for carbon di oxide.
Carbex is made in the form of 2.5-5.0 mm pallets processed to minimize dusting. The uniform shape allows a uniform gas flow, low pressure drop and consistent bed packing.
No Harmful Contents
Carbex does not contain potassium hydroxide or barium hydroxide and only a very low level of sodium hydroxide. It carries minimum risk of harmful anesthetic degradation compounds being generated.
Carbex is available in two forms:
Non-indicating type which does not change colour on adsorbing carbon di oxide Indicating type which changes colour from pink to white or white to violet as it adsorbs carbon di oxide.
Carbex is routinely shipped in 2 kg, 5 kg, 16 kg, plastic jars or in 40 kg. Fiber drums. Customers are free to send their specific packing requirements.
Carbex should be stored in a cool, sealed and clean dry environment and at room temperature. Exposure to direct sunlight is not recommended. Once opened, jars of soda lime should be used within a month.
