Potassium Permanganate Odoroxidant

Potassium Permanganate odoroxidant is a unique product for use in air purification. Consisting of activated alumina and potassium permanganate, Potassium Permanganate destroys odors and gas phase through the processes of absorption, adsorption, and chemical oxidation.

Potassium Permanganate is classed as non-toxic upon oral, dermal, and inhalation exposure, and as a non-irritant of the skin, according to the system of classification defined under the Federal Hazardous Substances Labeling Act. No special precautions are required for safe usage in these respects.

The odoroxidant pellets employ two of the oldest proven methods of gas contaminant control: sorption and oxidation. It begins operation by both adsorbing and absorbing molecules. Then, with the potassium permanganate as an oxidizing agent, proceeds to chemically destroy the collected contaminants. This chemical oxidation is termed Controlled oxidation because of its containment in the pellet form; and because it does not involve high temperatures or burning, unlike combustible oxidation methods. In this way, the system is unique. It has consequently given rise to the use of "odoroxidant" as a generic name to describe the nature of the system (or product), and to suggest its primary characteristic.
