A sensible answer to anesthesia gas problems in the operating room, the F/AIR anesthesia gas filter was specifically designed to remove waste anesthesia gases such as ISOFLURANE, HALOTHANE, ENFLURANE, SEVOFLURANE, etc. from the operating room environment. Economical to use, with an average useful life of 12 to 15 hours, the F/AIR is easily adaptable to anesthesia machines. The F/AIR can remove no less than 50 grams of pure halogenated anesthetic gases and can then be conveniently discarded.

* The steady state percentage increase in weight of adsorbent after air – which has been saturated with carbon tetrachloride at zero degrees C. – is passed through the adsorbent at 25 degrees C.
** The amount of halothane retained prior to breakthrough (breakthrough denoting the appearance of adsorbate in the effluent stream).
