Remove The Smoke Cloud and The Smell: Carbon Filter Smoke Eaters.

Most people, when looking for an effective smoke eater, aren't just looking for one that will remove the haze that lingers across a room, but one that will take out the smell of smoke too. A carbon filter smoke eater is the most effective way to remove the smell . Carbon Filter Smoke Eaters absorb smoke and other odors like a sponge. Carbon Filter smoke eaters adsorb the piggy backed molecules of big bigger particles. Activated carbon is a very porous material that adsorbs chemicals and the smell of cigarette smoke.

With all of the confusing information out in the market today claiming such things like "this collects smoke and dust without a fan" and "no need to replace a filter... ever."  These marketing hypes are exactly that.. hype.

The truth is, the best smoke eaters in the world do not use just one air cleaning technology, but several. An effective carbon filter smoke eater also uses at least two other types of filter technology, usually media and electrostatic. However, some also use multi-gas and ultra-violet to ensure the cleanest air possible.
