With the Toyobo Activated Carbon Fiber
Air Pollution! Bad Smells! Poor Work Conditions!
If these are your problems, we have solved them for you with a unique system of low running costs and high efficiency. Toyobo supplies a revolutionary system to work for you on these crucial problems. It is termed the KPR SOLVENT GAS TREATMENT SYSTEM.
The heart of this system is the activated carbon fiber (K-Filter) patented by Toyobo.
This system displays its greatest efficiencies when applied to exhaust gases with a fairly large air flow rate and a low solvent concentration. Outstanding successes in adsorbing solvent gases, and major money-savings have been attained when applied to various exhaust gases; this is particularly marked in paint booth operations of various kinds of industries.
Major strides have also been achieved in various phases of environmental waste disposal systems and odor-removal equipment.
This system has been proved in over 30 plants and operating units in the last years in Japan and elsewhere. Awards have been received in Japan and other countries for the innovation concepts of this system.

This system was developed in cooperation of Toyobo and Taikisha.

Applicable solvents
Benzene, Toluene, Xylene, n-Hezane, Naphtha, Rubber Oils, Cyclo-hexane, MEK, MIBK, Acetone, Ethyl Acetate, Butyl Acetate, Paint Thinner, Ethyl Ether, Dioxan, THF, Methyl Celloselve, Ethanol, IPA, Butanol and other solvents.

Automobiles, Cans, Electrical, Printing, Pharmaceutical, Fermentation, Chemicals, Rubber and Plastics and other industries.

  1. Reduced Cost of Investment
    The Main Section is extremely compact because the solvent-laden air is driven up parallel to the adsorbent surface under high air velocities. The Disposal Sectio is also very small. The cost of the System is up to 40% less than that of conventional deodorizing equipment.

  2. Low Operational Costs
    The solvent is concentrated within the Main Section to concentration levels higher than that of self combustion. No additional fuel is required for the subsequent incineration stage of the operation. This results in a major reduction in costs.

  3. Compactness
    The size of the entire system is up to 50% less than other deodorizing systems.

  4. Operational Ease and Safety
    The systerm is so simple that it can be handled with ease and safety, and is accident - and fool-proof.
