Benefits of Using the MT-6™ Molecular Filtration System

Despite the claims, ionization in any of its forms is not an appropriate means of odor control but rather a technology intended to improve indoor air quality (IAQ) and, in certain applications, plant health through the removal of bioaerosols. Odor control is accomplished through the utilization of appropriately designed and specially selected activated carbon like that found in the MT-6 Molecular Filtration System. Whether designed for an agricultural (such as commercial cannabis cultivation) or solid waste (such as a MRF) application, the chemistry and physics of molecular filtration remains the same while the appropriate type of activated carbon may change. Regardless of the application, Byers Scientific uses only industry-leading activated carbon media that has been third-party tested and validated. For those operators concerned with not just odor but also looking to improve IAQ and plant health, we offer an optional ASPRA® (patented Dutch high efficiency electrostatic precipitation technology) stage to safely and effectively remove bacteria, spores and other bioaerosols while extending the life of the activated carbon media.

At Byers Scientific, we believe in sustainable solutions. When designed, engineered, installed and utilized properly, molecular filtration technology (aka carbon scrubbing) is one of the most environmentally friendly and sustainable ways to efficiently trap and sequester fugitive gases and their associated odors through the power of activated carbon. Even with the optional ASPRA® high efficiency electrostatic precipitation technology on board, the MT-6 remains one of the most powerful yet energy efficient odor removal/air purification systems on the market today.
