3M Filtrete FAPF00C Carbon Air Filter Video Transcript

Hey everyone, Tony the Filter Doctor here. Today we’re looking at the 3M Filtrete FAPF00C. This is a replacement air filter for the FAP00-RS Ultra Quiet Air Purifier. Now, let me note right off the bat that this is different from the FAPF00, which is a standard replacement filter for the FAP00-RS. This filter features the addition of activated carbon to broaden the spectrum of air pollutant reduction. Not only does this filter capture pollen, dust, dust mite debris, and mold, but now with the addition of activated carbon it also reduces odors, chemical fumes, and other organic vapors. You see, activated carbon has a tremendous surface area; in fact one teaspoon of activated carbon has the surface area of an entire football field. Now, I know that’s kind of hard to imagine, but you have to see that each little tiny speck of carbon has hundreds and thousands of little crevices and a great deal of surface area on each speck. And that’s where the contaminants trap themselves. This is a great way to reduce odors and nasty chemical vapors that you want to get rid of. It’s just simply a better filter. Again, this is the 3M Filtrete FAPF00C, a replacement air filter for the FAP00-RS Ultra Quiet Air Purifier. I’m your host Tony, the Filter Doctor. Thanks for watching.
