AirSoap Carbon Filter
AirSoap's premium activated carbon filter is engineered to effectively capture unpleasant odors, making it an essential part of your indoor air quality solution. Featuring a dense, high-quality carbon layer that removes unwanted odors, gases, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the air. Utilizing a unique pore structure that provides a large surface area for maximum adsorption capacity. Every 6 months your AirSoap either needs a new filter or its original filter needs to be reactivated. Purchase a new filter here or buy a HomeSoap to reactivate the carbon layer in your current filter.

Reactivation vs New Filter
When activated carbon is used to adsorb impurities, such as pollutants or odors, it eventually becomes saturated and is no longer effective. In order to regenerate the carbon, it must be either heated, exposed to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, or replaced.
Activated carbon can be reactivated through a process called photoreactivation. This process involves exposing the activated carbon to UV radiation, which causes the carbon to release adsorbed contaminants and other impurities.
During photoreactivation, UV radiation causes the adsorbed impurities on the surface of the activated carbon to break down into smaller molecules, which are then released into the air. The process can take anywhere from a few hours to several days.
Should I buy a new filter or reactivate?
Photoreactivation is not always effective in fully regenerating activated carbon. The effectiveness of photoreactivation depends on factors such as the type of impurities being adsorbed, the age of the activated carbon, duration of use and the intensity of the UV radiation.
HomeSoap UV Sanitizers are the perfect tool for photoreactivation.
Reactivation with HomeSoap UV Sanitizer
How to Reactivate
HomeSoap UV sanitizers produce the proper high intensity UV radiation required for effective carbon reactivation, but after several reactivation events, we suggest replacing the old carbon element with a new one.
