Pleated panel filters offer a new commercial form factor for controlling VOCs in spacecraft cabin air. They differ from conventional commercial activated carbons because they have extremely low pressure drop. A test bed was developed for evaluating the removal capacities of two commercial pleated panel filters for NH3. Their adsorptive capacities were compared versus the adsorptive capacities of two acid impregnated activated carbons used for controlling ammonia in spacecraft cabin air.
