BORA activated charcoal filter replacement step by step

Our products in the recirculation version rely on the efficient operation of activated charcoal filters and ensure that unpleasant cooking odours do not enter the room air, thus keeping the air in your kitchen always fresh. But how does activated charcoal as an odour filter work?

Why do I have to replace my BORA activated charcoal filter?

Activated charcoal filters absorb unpleasant cooking odours, but their absorption capacity is limited. When activated charcoal is saturated, no further odours can be filtered, which is why the filter has to be replaced at certain intervals.

In our BORA online shop, you can easily order new BORA activated charcoal filters that match your BORA product.

HOW OFTEN DOES THE BORA ACTIVATED CHARCOAL FILTER NEED TO BE REPLACED?

So how often do you need to replace the activated charcoal filter of your BORA system? It depends on your BORA product and its activated charcoal filter:

BORA Basic: For the BORA Basic recirculation model, the BORA activated charcoal filter set (BAKFS) is the right product. A replacement is necessary after 150 operating hours.

BORA Pure: For the BORA Pure recirculation model, the BORA activated charcoal filter (PUAKF) is the right product. A replacement is necessary after 150 operating hours.

BORA Professional, BORA Classic 2.0 & BORA Classic: For both of these products in the recirculation version there are two options: the BORA air cleaning box Ecotube (ULB1) and the BORA air cleaning box with 3 activated charcoal filters (ULB3). The ULB1 has to be replaced after 200 operating hours. For the ULB3, a replacement is necessary after 400 operating hours

All BORA products have one thing in common in terms of filter replacement, a built-in function. This function automatically counts down the operating hours. As soon as it lights up, you need to replace the activated charcoal filter:
BORA Professional, BORA Classic, BORA Basic & BORA Pure: The required filter replacement is indicated by an “F” symbol in the display area of the fan

BORA Classic 2.0: Here a 5-digit message appears on the display:

  • i FILT: you have entered the last 20 hours of the remaining operational life
  • E FILT: you have entered the last 5 hours of the remaining operational life

How does activated charcoal basically work?

Activated charcoal basically consists mainly of carbon and graphite crystals with a large inner surface and a highly porous structure. Activated charcoal is used both for cleaning liquids and for odours. In the case of our BORA activated charcoal filter, the pore structure ensures that the activated charcoal traps cooking odours in its pores like a sponge. In comparison to a sponge, the activated charcoal stores the odour molecules in its pores and basically does not release them anymore.

In the BORA Basic activated charcoal filter, the filters have an additional “acidic” ion exchanger layer which ensures that certain odour particles such as amino acids in fish are destroyed and thereby made odourless.
