Activated carbon contents?
« on: June 25, 2024, 05:37:21 AM »
I'v taken apart and started cleaning some activated carbon air filters. Built in a way I can simply pop em in the oven for a few hours to clean, then re pack. Issue comes down to the off gas created by this process. It's a pungent odor that burns your eyes and lungs. Nothing causing serious long term damage (not much more then i'v already done) but still harsh. Any idea what this is? I assumed it would just be everyday hydrocarbons from day to day stuff, but this is just bad.

Probably all the stuff what was adsorbed on the filter is now cracked in the oven to other chemicals with this odor.
