The KAB? Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Absorber is a device designed to absorb CO2 from a closed or semi-closed breathing circuit system via absorbent soda lime. CO2?is absorbed in two cycles: during expiration as the expired gases are directed to the breathing bag and again during inspiration. Together with the minimal channeling this provides greater efficiency of CO2 absorption.

The KAB? Circular CO2 Absorber is available in both single use and autoclavable models.

KAB? CO2?Absorber (All Models):
  • Easy filling (Disposable models with pre-filled soda lime)
  • Shock Resistant Circular Design.
  • Unique Exhaust Valve
    • The Adjustable Pressure Limiting (APL) valve is integrated into the absorber and incorporates the scavenging port
  • Absorption up to 4 hours
    • 400g of soda lime has a life in excess of 6 hours in small animals.
  • Maintains inflation of breathing bag even at low flows
  • Eliminates risk of cross contamination?from CO2?absorbers
  • Asymmetrical divider and the fluted openings in the grates minimise ?channeling? to increase the efficiency of absorption.
  • Fresh gas inlet is present at rear (for KAB? CO2 Absorber with Nipple Attachment)

Included: KAB Elbow (Code:AB-KAB-ELB)
