Industry Experts Reveal Personal Comparisons About The Most Effective Electronic & Carbon Smoke Eaters!

Electronic and Carbon Smoke Eaters use at least two different kinds of technologies. Electrostatic precipitation (the electronic part) works by alternately positive and negatively charged plates that attract particles like a magnet does metal shards. Electrostatic precipitation can collect even the smallest particles of smoke and has been approved by ASHRAE standards to clean 98% of smoke and other particles from the air. Carbon filters consist of a media filter made up of activated carbon. Activated carbon absorbs smoke odors like a sponge and is the most effective at absorbing most any odor. However, like a sponge, the larger the amount, the more it can absorb. Be aware that sometimes an electronic and carbon smoke eater will come with only a few layers of activated carbon, but the most effective ones will come with a few pounds of carbon. The more carbon, the less often these filters will need to be changed.

Also, in addition to electrostatic precipitation and carbon media filters, other media filters (like HEPA or HEGA) similar to those in you HVAC system or even ultraviolet light can help eliminate smoke from the air. Along with this helpful information we have compiled a simple to use chart and some reviews from the top minds in the electronic and carbon smoke eater industry. So, read away, my friend, and leave here knowing which electronic and carbon smoke eater will work best for you.
