The capacity index has the following meaning:
1 -Adsorption capacity is low for these materials.Activated charcoal cannot be satisfactory used to remove them under ordinary circumstances.

2 -Includes substances which are not highly absorbed but which might be taken up sufficiently to give good services under the particular conditions of operations. These require individual checking.

3 -Satisfactory capacity for all items in this category. These constitute good applications but the capacity is not high as for category 4. Absorbs about 10 to 25% of its weight-average about 1/6 (16.7%).

4 -High capacity for all materials in this category. One pound takes up to 20 to 50% if its own weight-average about 1/3 (33-13%). This category includes most of the odor causing substances.

Some of the contaminants listed in the table are specific chemical compounds, some represent classes of compounds, and others are mixtures and variable compositions. Activated charcoal's capacity for odors varies somewhat with the concentration in air, with humidity, temperature and conditions and might vary in specific instances. The values in the table have been assembled from many resources including laboratory tests and field experience. In cases where numerical values were not available, the author has listed his opinion of the probable capacity based on general experience.
This table should be used a general rule only.
