Inorganics Removal Solutions

Controlling pollution by purifying air is becoming increasingly important in the modern world. Jacobi Services EcoFlow™ systems are the ideal solution for air quality problems within industrial facilities. We provide different solutions based around our mobile filter units paired with activated or reactivated carbon. We can offer a fully ‘plug-and-play’ solution for a wide range of requirements.

Get in touch with the Jacobi team and we will guide you through the technical process. Jacobi Services can help to select the correct activated carbon and mobile filter unit type EcoFlow™ for emission control.

There are numerous examples of inorganic compounds that must be removed from air in order to comply with the local legislation and to protect humans against these harmful gases. They fall into three categories: acidic, alkaline and neutral.

Acid gases are collectively a particular type of inorganic gas containing significant quantities of hydrogen sulphide, sulphur dioxide or similar corrosive compounds.

Alkali gas is predominately ammonia but may also comprise sodium hydroxide fumes and odours from light amines. These gases can cause unpleasant odours and can be extremely toxic with effects ranging from eye irritation and headaches to respiratory issues.

Other gasses like mercury. Mercury is a highly toxic compound that need to be removed from air. Jacobi has developed a series of high activity activated carbons that are chemically impregnated and are highly effective in removing mercury. Other gasses may also include formaldehyde, although strictly an organic molecule.

Typical inorganic compounds that are removed with mobile filters:

Acidic compounds
Alkaline compounds
Arsine (AsH₃) Ammonia (NH₃)
Hydrochloric acid (HCI) Amines
Hydrogen fluoride (HF)
Others including:
Hydrogen cyanide (HCN)
Carbonyl sulphide (COS)
Hydrogen sulphide (H₂S) Mercury (Hg)
Phosphine (PH₃) Formaldehyde
Sulphur Oxides (SO₂ & SO₃), Etc.


Our experts will be able to advise and help you find the best solution for your needs.


EcoFlow Filters


The EcoFlow™ range of mobile air treatment adsorbers have been successfully used for inorganics removal from air. The filters can treat up to 40,000 m³/h per filter. The mobile adsorbers can be operated in parallel to treat higher flow rates.

Auxiliary equipment and additional services

In addition to mobile filters and different media, Jacobi Services also offers various items of auxiliary equipment and additional services for inorganics removal from air, including:

  • The selection of the type and number of EcoFlow™ filters. The selection depends on the flowrate and the estimated annual activated carbon consumption.
  • The Jacobi Services division has local service teams that speak the native language to give on site customer support, depending on the application.
  • The Jacobi Services group can, based on lab testing, determine what the optimum recycling or disposal route is for the spent carbon is.

Recycling, Energy Recovery or Disposal Services

The Jacobi adsorbents are used in a wide range of applications. Adsorbents generally have a limited lifetime and need to be replaced once they are saturated or the treatment objective is reached. Jacobi Services offers several recycling, energy recovery or disposal services in different facilities, depending on the properties of the spent material.




Jacobi’s AddSorb™ range of speciality activated carbons for various applications, such as acid gases, alkali gases, formaldehyde, mercury, and odour control.
