Carbolime® - 1

CarbO2Lime® QUALITY-ENHANCED COMPOSITION STANDARD FEATURES CarbO2Lime carbon dioxide absorbent is a granular soda lime absorbent for the efficient removal of carbon dioxide from closed and semi-closed patient breathing circuits. CarbO2Lime is a quality compound which contains no potassium hydroxide (KOH). It is formed by proportionately mixing calcium hydroxide (Ca(OH)2) with a small amount of sodium hydroxide (NaOH). No KOH - Minimum anesthetic agent degradation (e.g., Sevoflurane to Compound A and other toxic products) compared to other brands containing potassium hydroxide. Low Dust - Minimum dust levels with the benefits of high surface area and graded particle size. CarbO2Lime is supplied as hard, irregularly shaped granules that have been processed to reduce dust formation from friction. Significant process improvements have resulted in enhancements in moisture content (12-19%), hardness, and porosity generation. As a result, CarbO2Lime delivers dependable, efficient CO2 absorption. Low risk of carbon monoxide formation due to good resistance of dry gas desiccation. Low Bulk Density - Less weight required to fill absorber and, therefore, less waste when refilling frequently (e.g., daily) prior to full exhaustion. Low odor due to reliable control of indicator dye concentration. Dye overdosing causes amines to be released; dye underdosing causes poor/no color change. Allied’s CarbO2Lime meets or exceeds the United States Pharmacopoeia National Formulary specifications for soda lime and is manufactured in accordance with the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Quality System Requirements (QSR), and ISO 13485 guidelines.

CarbO2Lime® Color Indicator and Regeneration Packaged for Flexibility Medical-grade CarbO2Lime contains a small amount of ethyl violet, which acts as a color indicator when the absorbent is nearing exhaustion. CarbO2Lime color is white to off-white. As CO2 is absorbed, it reacts with the ethyl violet, which causes the granules to distinctively change to purple. The purple color will intensify to indicate exhaustion of the soda lime. When the deep purple color has penetrated to half the depth of the absorber, the used material should be discarded. Non-hygroscopic CarbO2Lime is available in...
