Bituminous carbon is a coal based carbon. It is black or dark brown, often with well-defined bands of bright and dull material. It has a lower micropore volume level but the mesopores and macropores are higher which means it has a wider range to absorb molecules from small to medium making the life of the carbon shorter. It is also used by our customers who may have a sensitivity to Coconut shell carbon.

Filters Are Made By Hand
All our filters are handmade in the U.S.A. Workers do not wear perfumes, or strong smelling lotions, hairspray or deodorants. We also do not use any sealants or any kind of glue. We use only the highest quality materials in all our filters.
There are 5 steps to the making of the Aireox Filter. After each step, filters are covered and sealed to prevent any odors on the filters. When completed, the filter is bagged and sealed with a twist tie.
