The“Vocarb” carbon blendis AllerAir's most recommended and best-selling specialty carbon blend. Vocarb stands for Volatile organic compounds or VOCs and this include a variety of chemicals that can cause a range of health problems including shortness of breath, headaches, fatigue, nausea, dizziness and eye, nose, lung and throat irritation. Some VOC's are suspected to cause cancer in humans and have been shown to cause cancer in animals. The long-term health effects caused by VOC's would depend on the concentration and length of exposure.
The old Pro 5 Vocarb carbon was 4" and has been replaced with a 2.5" canister. The new design allows better air flow; therefore, better filtration.
