Frequently asked questions – What information do we need from you?

ACF manufacture and supply a wide range of carbon filters for use in diverse applications. Our aim is to ensure we advise on and supply the perfect filter to customers, every time. To do this, it's important that we get the right details from you. So what information will you need to have to hand, if you're looking for guidance or a quotation? Look no further..

Filter dimensions

Each filter casing is different and specific to the equipment that it will be fitted into, so it's important we have the right set of measurements from the start. The dimensions are expressed in millimetres (mm), length, width, and height. This information will enable us to select the correct size of case to suit your equipment.

Carbon type/Application

There are a variety of carbons available, the type for your filter will depend on the application such as Education (CLEAPPS) or the substance to be managed. We can offer blends of carbon that combine up to four different types to handle different substances. However, it’s important to note that the effectiveness will be reduced when compared to a single carbon.

Machine Information

If you have the machine make and model details to hand then this can be used to cross check the filter specification.


Each filter can be specified with a gasket fitted to either the upper, lower or both faces. Handles can also be fitted on any side of the filter. If you require any additions to your filter, just let us know!

ACF Part Number

If you have the ACF part number from a previous order and you require the same again, then quoting this will help us to get your order processed quickly.
