Traditionally and nowadays hookah smoking has been and is a very social custom, often practised in cafés, restaurants or at home with familiy, friends and guests. Tobacco was introduced in India in the 16th century to the court of Akbar the Great. His Persian physician Abu’l-Fath Gilani invented the waterpipe to purify the smoke by letting it pass through water before inhaling. In many countries and cultures it is now deeply rooted and part of daily life. Not only in the Middle East and Nort Africa, but also in the rest of the world the sale of waterpipe products has increased enormously in the recent years. Althought the World Health Organisation has been warning about the smoking of shishas for quite some time now.

Shair-Filters is developed to reduce the intake of hazardous toxins when using a hookah or cigarette. One of the most widely spread myths about shisha smoking is that it is a healthier way of smoking compared to cigarettes and cigars. However, there are, for example, more hazardous components (in number and amounts) present in shisha smoke than in cigarette/cigar smoke. Components such as carbon monoxide, tar and amounts of heavy metals, like lead and chromium. Regular shisha use can lead to health problems such as a higher risk of various cancers and other diseases. Shair-Filters significantly reduces coughing and headache when smoking a waterpipe / hookah.

How do Hookah Filters Work?

If you aren’t sure about how hookah filters work, or do you need them, let us enlighten you. Primarily, hookah filters play a crucial role in purifying the smoke and removing any harmful substances before you draw the smoke. In a nutshell, shisha filters prevent choking and make every puff smooth, so all you experience is the pleasant flavors. To understand what’s the role of shisha filters in Hookah, let’s delve into their mechanics.

At their core, shisha filters act as a barrier between the tobacco or herbal mixture, and the mouthpiece. The shisha filter is responsible for capturing the impurities or toxins present in the smoke. So, these filters for hookah include porous materials such as activated carbon, silica gel, or cotton that can absorb and trap particles as the smoke passes through them.

Mostly, activated carbon is used as a filtration material in shisha filters because they have a higher surface area, and the material is known for its excellent adsorption properties. As the smoke travels through the carbon filter, impurities and gases are adsorbed by the carbon particles, and harmful components like tar, or other volatile compounds are removed, so you get a cleaner smoking experience.

At Shair Filters, we take pride in our gold hookah filters that absorb any harmful substances particulate matter, fine debris, and even moisture while purifying the smoke before it reaches your mouthpiece. The multi-layered filtration ensures you get refined and enjoyable hookah sessions with fewer health risks associated with inhaling harmful substances.
