Kilauea VOG: Sulfur Dioxide Emission Rates Elevated

The Kilauea volcano continued to erupt at two locations today and the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reports that sulfur dioxide emission rates from the summit and east rift zone vents remain elevated.

If you’re looking for an air filter to remove dangerous VOG pollutants – you need more than a simple HEPA particle filter.

VOG is made up of dangerous chemicals, gases, odors and particles that penetrate deep into the lungs and mucus membranes of the eyes, nose and throat.

A HEPA air cleaner can only remove particles, leaving behind all other pollutants to linger in your air.

The AllerAir 5000 VOG and AirMedic VOG feature both a medical-grade HEPA filter and a customized activated carbon filter, designed specifically to adsorb the dangerous properties of VOG pollution.

Activated carbon is a proven, highly adsorbent material used by the military and industry to deal with the world’s most dangerous airborne toxins.

The 5000 VOG and AirMedic VOG feature the deepest carbon filter available in a home air cleaner to provide more effective air cleaning of VOG pollutants.
