Charcoal and Zeolite: filtering the way nature intended it to be.
The exclusive Carbon.Zeo combined filter by Falmec uses materials of natural origin such as zeolite and activated charcoal. It can retain odours with the utmost effectiveness.
Activated charcoal mainly contains carbon in the form of microcrystalline graphite, which has been processed in order to obtain a porous material with a large internal surface area. These characteristics allow it to retain a lot of substances by trapping their molecules and absorbing them in its internal structure.
Zeolite is a mineral characterised by a high absorption capacity of organic compounds and water vapour. This characteristic is the direct consequence of its microporous crystalline structure. Moreover, owing to its chemical features, zeolite releases heat when it comes into contact with moisture, thus reducing it. The use of zeolite is therefore very important to reduce odours, as well as to absorb steam produced by cooking.
Long life, easy maintenance.
Carbon.Zeo combined filter has a very long life: approximately 3 years with a normal use of the hood. In addition to that, it can be regenerated, every 18 months, by placing it in the oven at a temperature of 200° C for two hours. The filter must be replaced after three years. This intervention is very simple, as the filter is extracted from the bottom part of the cooker hood.
