Color-Coded Carbon Filters are for use with Paramount® models manufactured prior to 9/08. Each filter contains a minimum of 26 pounds of impregnated carbon and includes three sampling tubes that detect a broad range of chemicals specific to the filter. Due to the large range of possible organic chemicals, detector tubes are not included with the Organic Carbon Filter. All Paramount® Filtered models require one pair and all Paramount® Duet 72 models require two pairs of Carbon-Based Filters.
Electrostatic Prefilters remove mists and aerosols while Roughing Prefilters remove dust and particulates, extending the life of Color-Smart Filters. Replacing prefilters whenever changing Color-Smart Filters is recommended.
