Minimum anesthetic agent degradation (e.g., sevoflurane to Compound A and other toxic products) compared to other brands containing potassium hydroxide.
Minimum dust levels with the ben-efits of high surface area and graded particle size.
Low risk of carbon monoxide formation
Due to good resistance of dry gas desiccation.
Low Bulk Density
Less weight required to fill absorber and, therefore, less waste when refilling frequently (e.g., daily) prior to full exhaustion.
Due to reliable control of indicator dye concentration. Dye overdosing causes amines to be released; dye underdosing causes poor/no color change.
